Yorkshire Day was celebrated in style with a delicious Afternoon Tea at Oulton Hall Hotel, Leeds, courtesy of the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) in league with the Northern Stationers.

The guest of honour was The Master who gave an entertaining speech extolling the virtues of the county and its printing heritage. He did recognise the fact that his place of birth, Sheffield, was quite close to Derbyshire but he was assured that he more than met the criteria and was presented with a white rose buttonhole to mark the occasion – as were all the guests.

The Master was introduced by Charles Jarrold, Liveryman and CEO BPIF, who briefly reviewed the outstanding work of the BPIF throughout the pandemic, ranging from the support of members through to liaising with government in its formulation of support for our industry.

Robert McClements, Liveryman, who organised the event said, “It was a delightful afternoon. Despite the challenges of multiple traffic delays everyone arrived safely. Northern Stationers’ events are always open to all Company members and it was so good to be able to welcome them at a real occasion.”

TopicUK editor was delighted to attend. "I am a regular at the BPIF Yorkshire Day events, something which was sadly missed last year due to the pandemic, so I was thrilled to see the event return."
