Pictured above are seven Silsden senior citizens in their 80s and 90s, and a combined age of 611, whose  memories of childhood and growing up in the village have been recorded by Silsden Local History Group. At a special reminiscence afternoon they remembered days when community life was at its strongest. Their vivid recollections will be held on disc and in written form to keep for future generations. Standing (left to right) are: Barbara Smith, Joan Todd, Dennis Chad and Mary Greenwood. Seated (left to right) are: Jean Newns, Brenda Denton and Winnie Barker.
