BIG YORKSHIRE CRIME WEEKEND

My last day at the Midland Hotel and as i loiter around i just wanting to mention how enjoyable the last few days have been.

Many thanks to all who turned up to support our Big Yorkshire Crime Weekend, hosted by the new 21st Century Ripperology Crime group - H Division.

www.crimeclubuk.com

We enjoyed a varied program of talks and visits to locations of significance to the true crime enthusiast plus excellent company and good food.

I still cant get over the amount of people who turned up on Saturday night to hear about the Yorkshire Ripper. 150 local residents all with their own personal story to tell about the effect the largest manhunt in Britain had on them and their families.

For a small number who were able to hang around for the Monday and were hungry for more we also enjoyed an impromptu CSI tour around Bradford and Leeds focusing on the Yorkshire Ripper. Here we finally tracked down some hidden crime scenes and corrected mistakes that have been written in most books on the subject.

(That doesnt happen every day in a Ripper subject )

Special thanks to Colin Cobb for taking on the driving duties on this one. ( He was like Parker from Thinderbirds )

Massive thanks Johanne Edgington, Pippa Jay and David Foulkes for the work they put in supporting the event and to my long suffering wife Becky, who really is the brains of the operation. ( Thats me in the good books now )

Thank you to the three featured speakers, Gordon Lowe, Tim Tate and the ever dapper, not to say entertaining, Neil Storey.

Thanks due to the excellent Mark Davis for his local knowledge particularly with reference to the John Gill murder plus capturing some amazing Photographs over those three days and to Lindsey Siviter for her well appreciated knowledge, guiding and help on our Bus day out.

Thank you to the friendly and generous Yorkshire reception we received from the current occupiers of Donald Nielson's house and Albert Pierrepoint's former residence. Both of whom were unfazed by the sudden arrival of 30 gawping true crime enthusiasts turning up outside their homes and treated us as unexpected but welcome guests when they might have reasonably told us to get lost.

The owner of Pierrepoints house actually let us all into his back yard for a closer inspection which was truly welcome.

A big shout to the men and women of the Bradford Police Museum. All volunteers who opened up the building especially for us on the Sunday afternoon. Not only did they let us in , but they broke us up into smaller groups and gave a personal guided tour of the cells, courtroom, exercise yard and check in sections.

As a thank you for such a kind gesture, i donated two original Yorkshire Ripper public help posters which i hope will now have a new home on the walls of the museum for others to see .

To Richard & Sam Thorpe of Calverley Golf club who put on probably the finest finger buffet i have ever seen. I expected just sandwiches but Richard being the generous host he always has been laid out an awesome variety of hot and cold food , tea / coffee cakes and biscuits..... oh and there was beer

A thank you should go to Jackie Murphy who provided us with some great ideas for future events and a list of some wonderful potential speakers.

Finally thank you to all our fellow delegates and Members of H Division whose companionship and continued support was much enjoyed and appreciated.

On a final note , id just like to say , these events are very much needed in our lives. Its a subject that can be quite lonely in our every day world of work and general living. So getting together with like minded people can have a very rewarding feel good vibe and it is a million miles away from the social media & internet Forum world where it is far too easy to fall out with others.

If these events can make us all a little happier and we can meet new friends along the way , then , our job is done.

Cant wait to see you all again this September in Liverpool when we can do it all again .!!!!

JACK THE RIPPER -
BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2017

Every year for the past two years the people have voted for their favourite "Ripperology/True Crime" book of the year to be presented at the Official Jack the Ripper Conference. This year the Conference team will continue to ensure that this tradition is upheld and we are currently working on a new easy to use system that encourages all in the field to get involved.

We are also working on a fitting title for the annual award that represents both Ripper studies and the world of True Crime. We'd love to hear your suggestions on a name and if we pick it there might be a prize coming your way.

The Book of the Year award will be presented at the 2017 Jack the Ripper Conference in Liverpool.

For details please visit
