Merrie Christmas and Happy New Year!

I would like to wish you all a very Merrie Christmas and a Happy New Year!

A lot of the blog's success over the last twelve months has been due to the input of many of my readers. Highlights have included John Nelson's letter from Richard Todd and Julia Wright's experience of being on stage with Joan Rice. We also saw the results of the blog poll for your favourite Friar Tuck, Laurence's Mag-O-Flex and Matt Crandall's copies of the colourful Robin Hood comic strip from the 1950's.

Also during this year, Geoff Waite shared with us his research into the Provincial Premieres of Walt Disney's Story of Robin Hood in Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. Meanwhile Chrissy Noel, on our Facebook page, investigated and managed to find Richard Todd's Champion Archer of England.

We also discovered King John's bones, the bird that awoke Robin Hood and went onto Twitter.

I find it hard to believe that next year this blog will be ten years old! 

Walt Disney

Robin Hood lives on and Hollywood is busy planning more movie versions of the legend. I will follow the reports with interest. But one thing is certain, Walt Disney's original masterpiece, The Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men will never be forgotten!

Thank you for your continued support. I wish you and your families peace and happiness in the coming year.
