24th March 2018 - 47th AGM and Lunch at the Hilton Hotel Tower Street York.

We are delighted to have a distinguished guest as our speaker before lunch: Dr Peter Addyman, the Founding Director of The York Archaeological Trust, who recently edited the comprehensive “York” edition of “The Historic Towns Atlas.”

Do join us for the short formal AGM at 11am, followed by our March talk and lunch for which a menu and booking form is available here. Tea and coffee are available for everyone from 10.30am and at 12.45pm the Conservatory Bar will open, and remain available throughout lunch. Lunch is served at 1.30pm and the event concludes at 3.30pm.

New faces welcome, particularly for an excellent talk and to meet fellow members over a very good Lunch at £21 per member.   (No charge for AGM attendance)

See the Newsletter and the Day Trips, Holidays, Talks, Walks and Social web pages for details of upcoming events. Booking forms for all the events are available via the relevant web pages and on the Newsletter/Docs page.

This is the NEW Members' area of the YANT website.

During the weekend of 20/21 January, the Members' area of the YANT website (not the main website at yant.org.uk) was moved. As a result, all existing Bookmarks will need to be updated to use the new site (this one). Now that the change has taken place, please login at least once to ensure you can access Newsletters and Booking Forms ready for the March Newsletter. Full details can be found on Page 8 of the December Newsletter.

Monday 25th June, 2018 - The YANT Annual Garden Party will be held this year at Beningbrough Hall. More details in the March Newsletter.

On Saturday 7th April, 2018 the layout of the YANT Public website at yant.org.uk will be changing. We will be using a system called Responsive Pages, which lets a website adapt the layout of the page to suit different devices - laptop, tablet, mobile phone - based on screen size, platform and orientation. If you would like a first look at the new layout you can try it using the temporary address yantonline.org.uk. Please send any comments, or details of any mistakes you may notice, to me at web@yant.org.uk. Please do not bookmark the site as the temporary address will be removed once the change has taken place and the site may change before it goes live. This is a precursor to a possible change to the current website.
