2. Action Report
RC reported that was still trying to obtain large scale mapping of the parish. This map was to be used to replace the hand annotated map held by Joyce Parker. AD stated that he was trying to obtain copies of large scale maps of the parish dating from the 19th Century. Unfortunately Malton library have lost one of the maps – but AD said he would pursue the matter. DG stated that he had a number of large scale maps dating from the 1960s. RC said that during her attempts to obtain maps from the County Council she had come across the fact that council holds a record on the archaeology etc of each parish and that she would try obtain details of the contents.
The meeting agreed that it would be of great value to hold maps of these three periods. However it was pointed out by PB that holding current property details would come within the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR).
PB reported that he had started writing a history of the village.
PB requested that members send him a list and brief description of any documents that the group hold on the history of the village.
3. The Exhibition
PB stated that in discussion with DD suggested that the Exhibition should be a one day event associated with a tea, coffee and cakes, which would hopefully attract more of the village than if it was just an exhibition. The meeting approved this and PB stated he would circulate some suggested dates.
4. PB reported that he had attended a course in London on oral history. One of the main issues tackled on the course apart conducting an interview was GDRP and the importance of obtaining written permission from the subject to obtain a recording and then how it would be used.
After considerable discussion it was decided that PB would interview DS, GM and if possible Clive Milson as a first step.
GM will investigate if his company has specialist recording equipment.
