Congratulations to Freeman Greg Bird, Director of Sales at Kolbus UK, who has just undertaken a five day cycle ride from Kolbus UK’s HQ in Milton Keynes to their German head office in Rahden, Germany. He has done it to raise funds for Dorothy House which provides fantastic hospice care in the Bath area.
We have amongst the membership several Stationers who are huge car enthusiasts and who will therefore enjoy the following story from Court Assistant Phil Ellaway which combines cars, writing, art and publishing:
There are two really good pieces of news from SCWA this week. All such information goes on a special page within the website which you can access here. It really is worth browsing through to this page regularly because fantastic work, much of it with Stationers' input, is going on at the school. This week their work on the careers front is lauded and there is a report from the Photography and Film Studies course.
The Archives Event, which took place on Monday 25 April and which was sponsored by Fenner Paper, the Folio Society and Adam Mathew, was an absolute sell-out with several disappointed people languishing on the waiting list. A reminder, if one was needed, to book tickets to events as soon as the booking opens!
We are looking forward very much to tonight's Archive Evening which is focused on Shakespeare - a man for all time!
As well as the exciting speakers and materials on display visitors to the event will be able to pick up a special flyer about a book due to be published in June by Lutterworth called Words of Power - Reading Shakespeare and the Bible. For more details about the book please click here.
More than 100 Foundationers and their partners gathered at Stationers’ Hall on 18 April where the Chairman of the Fundraising Committee, Court Assistant, David Allan and the Master thanked all Foundationers for the support they had given the Company and the Foundation in response to the Education Appeal.
Few would disagree that the Publishing Media Group Roundtable last night at the Hall was a massive success. It focused on independent publishing and the Stationers’ Company was delighted to welcome, amongst the attendees, members of the IPG.
