A stitch in time

We had a visit from some members of the Guisborough Embroiderers’ Guild (Lynda Jamieson, Beryl Frank, Marion Calvert and Linda Danby) this morning. They showed us their ideas for a banner (designed by Sue Chipchase) commemorating the 900th anniversary of the foundation of Gisborough Priory – featuring flowers, shields, architecture and more. We are looking forward to seeing this idea take shape over the year.

Celebrations start for 900 years of Gisborough Priory

We started the celebrations at Gisborough Priory this morning when Lord Gisborough unveiled a new timeline display charting events in the 900 years since the foundation of Gisborough Priory. The timeline runs around the inside of the information hut on the priory site. The content can be seen here.

Everyone was impressed by the colourful and informative display. It will now be on permanent display in the priory for all visitors to see.

In honour of the start of this anniversary year, volunteers and guest were also treated to a special cake.

The timeline has been designed by local PR and marketing agency, DTW who worked on this project free of charge. We would like to thank them for their generosity, expertise and enthusiasm.
