THE RICHARD III SOCIETY
NORTH STAFFORDSHIRE GROUP
WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
The focus of this group is to share the pleasure of learning and exploring all aspects relevant to the life and times of Richard III.
We welcome as members Ricardians who live within the area and those who don't but share our interests and approach.
We choose topics to explore and present each other with our findings at our monthly “at home” meetings. These are circulated to our more distant members, who also contribute. Larger papers and summary reports are put on our website.
We enjoy outings to places of interest, meeting up for lunch together and on-line chat.
Membership of this group is more than just a once a month event and members who are unable to get to physical meetings can be fully involved on-line.
We have, in addition to our website, a members only Yahoo group. Here we can post the agenda and minutes of physical meetings; hold discussions; help each other with queries; share our individual work with fellow members; embark upon joint projects and of course, gossip. By exploiting modern communications we are able to benefit any who are unable to get to physical meetings. It also means that that membership of this group is more than just a once a month event.
Here is what one of our online members has to say
"I have found the distance membership invaluable. It means that in my rural idyll I can be part of a Ricardian Group or Branch in reality. By that I mean I can research the current topic and if desired I can submit an article for discussion at a 'meeting' and it can go into the files for everyone to access and discuss.
I find the instant access to my Group or Branch friends brilliant. Far better than an odd meeting here or there and the expense and time to go anywhere
I found that one meeting per year at a Ricardian venue good fun and a chance to meet the Internet group."
OUR LOGO: The white boar of Richard III, above a garb (wheatsheaf) of Ranulph de Blundeville, earl of Chester, charged with a Stafford knot. The parhelion both represents the "electronic ether" and commemorates our inaugural meeting held on 2nd February, the anniversary of the battle of Mortimer's Cross.
