Wuffa Saxon and Viking Reenactment Society based in Gorleston is going from strength to strength with an increasing membership.

The group is now sponsored by Stonham Barns Leisure and Retain Village, and more than 30 members attend events throughout East Anglia, demonstrating skills and a way of life only seen in history books.

Now Wuffa are recruiting new members, who don’t need to have combat experience as full training is given. They are looking for living history members who have a skill or craft to highlight at the group’s events.

Wuffa practice combat at sessions held at Cliff Park Junior School, Orde Avenue, Gorleston on a Thursday, from 7pm to 9.30 pm.

During the summer months, archery will be featured and archers that want to join the group are welcome to go along and find out more, explained secretary David Bracey.
