Christmas Social night.

Just want to say thanks for those who turned up last wednesday evening to the society christmas social bash. It was a good night for those who attended and hopefully they enjoyed the fun quiz and party games we played.

Thanks to Kirsty at the pavilion clubhouse who put on some food and to Lyn who baked a festive lardy cake and to Chris who took the time to make a splendid spear pie which went down well with the members.

No raffle was held this year due to low numbers so any items brought can be saved for next time.

Winner of the quiz was Sue who won a personally signed copy of a new book by Glynn Holloway called 1066: What Fates Impose... hope you enjoy it and let us all know what it's like. Her head to head question with Jenny was : Who was the director of the movie in scene image number 20?

I have put the quiz questions on the website for those who want to have a go, just go to the Christmas Quiz 2014 page.  Answers are at the bottom of the quiz page.

Good Luck and Yuletide greetings to all.

What a weekend!!!!!

This years battle weekend was the biggest and best despite a bit of drizzle on Saturday.

The whole event went extremely well thanks to ALL the helpers from the Society who did a fantastic job with all the activities and jobs that needed doing. This is what make s it work.

Everybody I talked to had a great time. We had a very good attendance on both days and the Viking village and fighting was enjoyed by EVERYONE.

Battle Weekend

This is our 5th Battle re-enactment and will be our biggest and best.

We continue to grow fast and are already making plans for 2016 - the 950th anniversary.

We want you to come along, get involved and help with our mission of having the Battles of Stamford Bridge and Fulford (The forgotten battles of 1066) recognised and celebrated for the major events in our history they were.

Sharon Daniel (Winner of Child Genius) is our 
special guest.

Well Done Sharon - Genius.

We would like to congratulate Sharon Daniel who has WON the Channel 4 series - Child Genius.

Sharons' specialist subject was The Battle Of Stamford Bridge and it was her final question that got her to the knockout out round and victory.

We were asked to do some filming with Sharon back in April and we gave her a full guided walk. Although only 10 seconds were shown in the programme.

We have invited Sharon and her parents to come to our battle weekend on 20th September to meet Kings Harald and Harold and be a part of the event.
