Latest News

There has been great news from one of our Bursary Recipients this week. Zoë Glatt had a Stationers’ Bursary in 2015 when she studied for a Masters in Digital Media at Goldsmiths, University of London.  She was made Free of the Company in November 2016 and worked for both In The Dark Radio and CathTate Cards but this  September  she  started an ESRC funded PhD at  the LSE in the media department, where she is  researching the changing landscape of online youth culture (YouTube video bloggers specifically). Zoë says “This is thanks in no small part to the Stationers’ scholarship awarded to me that enabled me to pursue my MA in Digital Media at Goldsmiths“.

Naturally we wish Zoë every possible success with her research and look forward to hearing all about it in due course.

The Master, the Clerk and a goodly number of southern-based Stationers made their way to Yorkshire yesterday, 18 October, to meet up with the Northern Stationers and enjoy a visit to the Hockney Gallery at Salt's Mill.  In the photo below you can see them enjoying lunch in Cafe into the Opera at Salt's Mill.

At the Master and Wardens’ meeting on 16 October there was a Freedom Ceremony at which the Master made five people Free of the Company.  They were (from L to R in the photo):

  • Tomas Mateos Werner, Partner of Kazakhstan Kagazy jsc
  • Rafael Pittman, a Freelance Researcher, Writer and Artist
  • Edward Trippier, a Freelance Digital Editor
  • Martin Reid, Managing Director of Egan Reid Ltd
  • Anthony Clayton, Director of Alpha to Omega

We wish them sell as they start their life within the Company and hope to see them at the Hall again before too long.

Liveryman David Houseman reports on the Stationers' Foundation Golf Classic held last month:

On a lovely sunny morning sixty or so players assembled at Worplesdon Golf Club in Surrey to play in the twelfth Charity Golf Day.

At the Livery Lunch yesterday the Master presented the Stationers' Warrants for 2018.  Nine companies received warrants and full details can be read here.  In the photo above you can see from Left to right:

At Monday’s Livery Lunch the Master was delighted to announce that Anglo had become the 21st Corporate Member of the Stationers' Company and hoped that they would have a long relationship with the Company.

In January 2016 the Government Statisticians  reckoned that the UK’s Creative Industries are now worth £84.1 billion per year to the UK economy.  As a Company we often quote such figures to impress upon our audiences at events, etc, how important the sectors we cover are to the UK.  A press release (click here to read) received from Liveryman Mark Allen gave us pause for thought.

Members will be delighted to know that at the recent Livery Autumn Dinner Michael Hancock was presented with the Company’s Silver Medal.  The Silver medal is awarded in recognition of exceptional service of considerable significance to the work of the Company.
