TOP: SCA member Roger Brown's drawing illustrates some of Sandal's best known features, including St Helen's Church, the Duke of York monument, the Three Houses pub, Sandal Castle Primary School (formerly Sandal Endowed School), the village pump and, of course, Sandal Castle.
RIGHT: Each year the SCA provides Sandal with a Christmas tree. The now traditional switch-on of the lights is followed by a very popular family social in Sandal Castle Primary School, highlights of which include the children singing festive songs and a visit by Santa.
The SCA distributes a newsletter around Sandal twice a year, providing local updates and news of forthcoming events. There was no newsletter in April 2020 because of the coronavirus crisis. Here you can download past newsletters.
