CBA Yorkshire Autumn Events 'a great success'

October saw CBA Yorkshire put on two Saturday events for members. A workshop on publication and graphics was designed to give groups guidance on how to prepare books, leaflets and brochures for print. Issues such as copyright and dealing with printers can cause problems for the uninitiated but the tutor, Farrell Burnett, was able to show how to get the best results through all stages of the publication process. Illustrations and graphics were covered by Trevor Pearson, who stressed that creating appealing images did not always require the latest computer technology. 

The following Saturday saw around 35 members and friends of CBA Yorkshire make the short journey north to visit Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience attraction. The day was taken up with talks on the two historic vessels HMS Trincomalee, a wooden fighting ship from the time of Nelson and the paddle steamer Wingfield Castle which once plied the River Humber followed by guided tours of both vessels. The visit ended with a look at the static displays in the reconstructed historic buildings that line the dockyard. 

It was gratifying that both events were well supported and enjoyed by all who took part and plans are well under way to continue with a full programme of events in 2011.
