Summer, Summer, Summertime, ooooo Summertime!

Posted 8/5/2019

Welcome back to the start of the summer term.  I hope you all had a good Easter break and enjoyed the warmer weather...while it lasted…

Information and Dates for your Diaries this term:

  • The end of last term saw the second year that NYCC and York St John’s University and York University have run  successful ‘Creative Forces’ days in collaboration with NCOP and SCiP Alliance.  Service students from primary and secondary schools in North Yorkshire and York attended to have a taster of university/higher education, met with currents students, took part in workshops and enjoyed tours of the campuses. 

  • Message from MKC Heroes and the RBL:

    “The Royal British Legion is hosting a commemorative event marking the 70th anniversary of the Berlin Blockade, the UK military’s first real involvement in post-war humanitarian work overseas – something the current military now do as a matter of course.   The event will be very much focussed on developing the interest of youth and is at the IWM Duxford on Sun 12 May 19.  The morning will consist of interactive activities for youth groups, including a flight simulator which will be a flight path route over Berlin and the chance for groups to take off/land a plane. We are also hiring 4 x VR headsets from IWM Duxford which show the Lancaster Bomber 360 experience of Berlin Blitz (1943).  We’re also working with Spy School who will be putting together a programme of activities for the morning (MI5 etc.) and will have some more information about this soon. All groups will also have the opportunity to walk around the Aircraft Museum during the day. There will be a lunch reception and we are then holding a ceremony which will include a couple of readings from veterans and potentially Air Vice Marshall David Cooper CBE. We will be recording the ceremony that will be held in Berlin and this will then be shown towards the end of the Ceremony. The event will end with a poppy drop flypast (weather dependent) or if not, a poppy drop within the venue. We would be delighted to host MKC Heroes members at this event, with lunch, but will be unable to cover their transportation costs.” If interested please contact Paula Rowe:
