On Friday, 4 November Stationers from all over the north of England gathered in York for the Stationers' Company Northern Region Lunch which is increasing in popularity year on year and which is instrumental in increasing the Company's membership from the region.
This year the event was even bigger than last with a guest speaker, David Shields, North Yorkshire Director of Welcome to Yorkshire and visits for two groups to the York Minster Library where many treasures were on show including one of the notorious Wicked Bibles. In the photo you can see Liveryman Robert McClements, (his wife, Martina, took the photo) with the York Minster Librarian, Sarah Griffin. Our thanks to Robert and to Liveryman John Buffoni who together organised the day's programme. For more details of the event please see Robert's press release here.
