Tournament organisers make music stand appeal

A music stand similar to the one which has disappeared.

The Wensleydale Tournament of Song is appealing for the return of an historic music stand.

The item disappeared from the Methodist Church Hall in Leyburn last year.

It has a cast iron base.

It also has the inscription ‘stand presented by Miss Ruth Rogers 1957’ on a small silver plate attached to the wooden desk top.

Society president Vel Nelson said: “We really would like it to be returned in secret, or any other way, so hopefully we will jog someone’s memory or their conscience.”

The stand can be returned anonymously to the Methodist Church Hall or call Val on 01677 450227.
