For those of you who don’t know about the HEY (Hull & East Yorkshire) History Calendar, you’re missing out on a wealth of local information! Every day for over a year Carol Osgerby has posted on Facebook about a local historical event which happened on that day. Followers of the page, of which there are over 450, will learn something new every day about the beautiful county they live in. The history classes in school can often forget that we’re all a part of history, which is why the HEY History Calendar is so wonderful. The Facebook page focuses mostly upon ordinary people rather than the rich and famous, and dates as old as possible. Much of what has been learned so far will be put on display at Hedon Museum.
Displayed alongside will be a collection of historical photographs, newspaper clippings and maps. Robert Butler returns to Hedon Museum with his enchanting collection inspired by his love of local history. Anyone who lives in Paull, Burstwick, Thorngumbald, Keyingham, Ottringham and Patrington will find a real treat waiting for them in our upstairs gallery, in historical pictures of their towns and villages. You might also find something surprising in the newspaper clippings too. It’s not uncommon to find a little family history among the pages.
