Blog #4 – As the world rapidly moves forward, I find myself trying to keep up to date with various online groups such as the Save our Selby SOS facebook group. I was recently asked by them to choose a winner and present an award to a local photographer who highlighted the positiveness of our town centre in the build up to Christmas. The winning photograph had a number of elements in it to help me make it win the prize. First of all it had Selby’s biggest tourist attraction in it. How many of us have actually visited Selby Abbey other than for a wedding or a school trip many years ago? When I was a kid, the roof was accessible on a bank holiday Monday. I remember my father making me climb the million steps up and up to the top. But once we got to the top it was well worth it. The view of Brayton Barff one way, Wistow Lordship to the other. Also in the photo is the market place, again, how many of us use the market? (remember we are famous as the ‘Market’ town of Selby) In future columns I will look at ways we can improve Market day, but try and go buy your fruit and veg from the stool near the post office, or buy a brew and a bacon butty from the van and have a look around. You never know, you might buy something!
