Had a good afternoon with Peter Wood of Hexham TV, looking at the exhibition and recording an interview for their Youtube channel.

I was at the Sill first thing to meet the delegation from Ippse de Brugge and take delivery of the Roman Barge model. Nick Hine came from English Heritage and I took him round the exhibition and we talked and about the individual projects - looking forward to seeing his photographs soon. The issue with the printers was still not resolved and the booklet delivery was put back again to after 12 noon and I was worried that they wouldn’t arrive in time. Unfortunately Sarah Burn was ill on the day, but all the preparation had paid off at the Sill and we had a fantastic event that was really well attended. Our only casualty was the online part which ran into technical difficulties. The room was full, the film makers recorded the event and the booklets finally arrived with an hour to spare and look great. Thank you everyone who made this all possible!
This week has been snagging week and I returned to the Sill to add final pieces from the printers as they became available. It is so nice to see the exhibition up. The bright red and the logos works really well branding the exhibition throughout the building. The press releases have gone out to the various media organisations and I wait for take up. Hexham TV responded really quickly and a date was set to film at the Sill.
