Ken and Diane McNaught would like to welcome you to our web site.
In here you will find out a little about some of our interests that we think may be of interest to you, our visitors. Your comments are always welcome.
Some information about Ken and Diane including some photographs.
In January 2011 Ken took the Archery Beginners' Course with Bowmen of Leeds archery club and has been shooting archery up to twice a week since. He is involved with the running of the club at all levels, organising courses and Have-a-Go events as well as being thier chairman for a few years. Ken continues to maintain their website.
Ken was involved with the Knottingley Concert Brass brass band, based in Knottingley (near Castleford) West Yorkshire. He remains the WebMaster for the band despite having to leave in 2012 due to contracting commitments. The site is large and kept up to date. It is full of information about the band, concerts past & future and contains many photographs.
Whilst dipping into his family tree, Ken discovered a very interesting person in his ancestry who had an unusual story. If you are interested to know more about Harry Bensley, "The OTHER man in the iron mask"! who attempted to walk around the world without being identified, then follow the links to his site.
In the summer of 2006, Diane purchased an unusual item. This is an old automated puppet display unit which was made back in the sixties by Bob Pelham for the 1965 Christmas window display of the Selfridges store in London. A little of its history and the story of our own restoration of the unit can be followed on the Pelham Puppet Animated Display Unit pages.
