A new project centred around the preservation of Malton and Norton’s social history has been handed £91,400, thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

Two Collections, Two Towns will focus on the digital recording of the The Woodhams-Stone collection alongside interviews with collectors John Stone and Sid Woodhams.

Two staff have already been employed to work with local volunteers to create an online record of every item in the Woodhams-Stone Collection, which runs to several thousand artefacts mainly from Malton and Norton’s past.
