is the theme for our

We hope there will be plenty to inspire you to pen a story. It could be based on an actual bomb incident or a memorable upheaval or disaster that has happened within the family.

The competition is open to all our members. The maximum number of words is 1000 and can be either factual or fiction.

The closing date for entries is 31st October 2017.

Our judge from last year, Dorothy has kindly agreed to judge this years submissions.

Peter Braithwaite, our Chairman said "We were very impressed and encouraged by the standard of last year’s entries and we are looking forward to reading your stories this year."

The prize for the winning story is a lifetime membership for Ryedale Family History Group.
