Upcoming Events

2019 AGM Successful.

YAYAS members enjoyed a very interesting

talk by Yorkshire Aerial Mapping's Tony

Hunt after a useful AGM. We were sad to

lose Dr. Bill Fawcett as editor of York

Historian after 18 capable years at the helm

but are very glad that Bill has chosen to 

remain on the YAYAS Council: we hope to

avail ourselves of his extensive knowledge for years to come. Bill is succeeded by Paul Chrystal, the author of a number of excellent volumes on York and Yorkshire so the York Historian remains in safe hands! We welcome back onto Council Sandra Garside-Neville and Ian Drake, and a new member, Catherine Sotheran, making our council a strong and varied group of knowledgeable individuals.
