HE'S back! - Knaresborough's own Millennium Knight on a Charger has returned to his rightful place at the front of Knaresborough House after a lengthy absence of 15 months. The wicker woven horse with his seated knight was presented to the town by the Knaresborough in Bloom committee in 2000 as a Millenniuin gift but on Mischief Night in November 2002, vandals destroyed the knight by removing its head resulting in the horse being taken away for repair. Whitby-based sculptor, Emina Stothard who made the horse has been hard at work making a replacement head and putting him back together again. Thanks to the efforts of the Knaresborough in Bloom committee and the Town Council, he is now safely back where he belongs.
