Entitled “While they’re gone – East Riding Countryside in the Great War”, an exhibition by the Volunteer team at Skidby Windmill opens there on Tuesday, 29 April. This exhibition is part of Joining up the Humber, a programme supported by a £1 million grant from Arts Council England. The initiative runs until 2015, and will support commemorations of the centenary of the First World War in the Humber region. The money will be used to improve galleries and facilities across the museums managed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Hull City Council and North Lincolnshire Council in preparation for exhibitions in 2014 and beyond. The Skidby display runs until Tuesday, 30 September and looks at the effects of the war on farming and the local economy, as well as exploring the stories of local men who served. The Mill is open daily 10am to 5pm (last admission 4.15pm). Modest admission charges apply. For more information call the Mill reception on (01482) 848405.
