What are we doing in 2018?

Right now we’re completing this new website which we hope you like, including a new section on the Rowntree timeline, year by year from its beginnings in 1822, right through to the company take-over in 1988.  The Rowntree History section also got a quiz of Rowntree Myths and Legends – some interesting stories that keep getting told and that we think deserve writing down! More to come on that soon.

We’re also working with JRHT to develop some heritage and community-based projects in New Earswick, planned to co-incide with the reopening of the Folk Hall in the spring. And we’ve got loads of different other things on the go, on a variety of fronts.
