Snowdrop Sunday & Mosaic Unveiling

Yesterday the Mayor of Guisborough, Alma Thrower, unveiled the 900th anniversary mosaic in Gisborough Priory. Among the special guests were Helen Gaunt and Derek Mosey (the artists who designed the mosaic), Sally Wilson (English Heritage) and Lord Gisborough.

An appreciative crowd of visitors was full of admiration for the mosaic and found out more about its design from Christine Clarke (secretary of Gisborough Priory Project).

This was our first open day of 2020 and the sun came out to welcome over 400 visitors who braved the windy conditions to admire not only the mosaic, but also the thousands of snowdrops and other spring flowers in the woodland gardens.

Refreshments were available to visitors as well as snowdrops and winter aconites sold by Mike Heagney. Almost £480 was raised from refreshment sales and visitor donations – a wonderful start to the year.

Signs of Spring

Volunteers have been busy working in the gardens today, getting ready for Snowdrop Sunday and the re-opening of the Priory in March.

And there are plenty of signs that Spring is on the way…

Mosaic installed

The special mosaic created by the local community to commemorate the 900th anniversary of Gisborough Priory was installed in the Priory recently and looks marvellous.

The design features many elements from the Priory’s history in a colourful and lively design.

You will be able to see the mosaic when Gisborough Priory reopens in 2020 – the first event will be Snowdrop Sunday on 23 February.

Bye bye Bible

Jayhawk vehicle leaving Guisborough Library with the Gisburne Bible on board

The Gisburne Bible left Guisborough Library yesterday and returned to its usual home of St John’s College Library, Cambridge.

After checking the Bible’s condition, it was carefully packed in a special case and secured in the back of Jayhawk’s art transport vehicle for the journey back.

And today the glass case that has displayed the Gisburne Bible for the last five weeks was dismantled and returned to its Hampshire home.

A massive thank you goes to everyone who helped make this display possible and also to all the visitors who came along and made it all worthwhile.

We will be adding newly discovered information about the Gisburne Bible to the website soon – look out for it.

Halloween Fun Day

We had our Halloween event yesterday and we were very busy, as always, with over 300 visitors, almost half of them children, many in special, spooky costumes.

As well as storytelling and the witch’s potion trail there were plenty of lanterns made, ready for Halloween itself. Delicious cakes and warming drinks were also on offer.

We raised just over £290 on the day. This was our final outdoor event of the year so a big thank you to everyone who worked so hard to help during the day and to those who donated the ever popular baking and preserves to sell – we could not do it without you!

Bible display opens

Over fifty people gathered this morning in Guisborough Library to see Philippa Gregory unveil the Gisburne Bible display. After a short speech, Philippa whisked the cover off the display case and everyone was able to study the Bible and find out more about its history.

The display continues until 29 October and is free. Guisborough Library opening times can be found here.
