Tri Centennial Commemorative Seat for Scorton Village

At the 2011 Meeting of the Society of Archers, held on 21 May, the arrangements for the purchase of a Tri Centennial Commemorative Seat for Scorton Village first put forward in 2009, received final unanimous approval and support of all members. It was regretted that what was meant to be a 'pleasant surprise for the village' had taken rather longer than anticipated due to only having annual meetings.

The Presentation took place on Wednesday 20 July 2011 when Frank Newbould, who this year celebrated his 60th Anniversary
from when he first won the Captaincy at Scorton in 1951, presented the Seat to Scorton Parish Council Chairlady, Fiona Hurwood-Foster.
