Aycliffe Village Hall

The Exhibition was held in Aycliffe Village Hall on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September, 2006.

Many villagers contributed photographs for scanning and display,as well as scrap books, postcards, maps, clothing, including the funeral director's hat and shirt.

Village school children contributed work.

Over 500 people attended over the two days, with many people travelling far to get here.

People who had been in the same class over 60 years ago met again for the first time!

Below Brian Gargate has sent more photographs taken at the Exhibition on the Saturday. Are you in any of them?
