Vale of Belvoir Conker Championships, 2005
Vale of Belvoir Conker Championships, 2005
Long Clawson has hosted these championships since 1983. Women were banned from the annual Vale of Belvoir Conker Championships but in 1996 they won the right to compete after their protests of sex discrimination were raised in the European parliament. After the ruling the men were forced to back down and thirty-two women joined sixty four men in the contest. A good time is had by all especially as the pub is right next to the green! The insert shows "Prince Conker", last year's winner, giving advice and encouragement to potential competitors.
