BPIF/BOSS Celebrate Yorkshire day - with a real event!

BPIF/BOSS Celebrate Yorkshire day - with a real event!

A total of 30 guests including Stationers and partners celebrated Yorkshire Day in style with Afternoon Tea at the Oulton Hall, Leeds.

The guest of honour was Robert Flather, Master of the Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers, 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. He was introduced by Charles Jarrold, 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, CDI President, proposed the vote of thanks and remarked, "It was a delightful afternoon. Despite the challenges of multiple traffic delays everyone arrived safely and it was so good to be able to welcome them at a real occasion."
