The 24th November saw a most unusual talk that was very well attended. Richard Hardcastle the Chief Anaplastologist at St Luke's hospital treated us to a talk on the subject of cosmetic prosthetics.
On 17 November a collection of intrepid members braved the weather to visit the nearly-complete Sunbridge Wells development in (actually under) central Bradford. Graham Hall, who masterminded the project, showed us round the whole intricate layout. With its seven themed bars and numerous shops connected by beautifully restored tunnels it is enhanced with an extraordinary selection of historic and imaginative objects some leant by local museums.
The meeting on 10 November was re-formatted at short notice as our Greenwood Trophy for Novices could not run for lack of entries. However there were plenty of entries for the Norman Stow Trophy for Architectural Record prints. David Hopkinson won with his 'West Window, Ripon Cathedral' (see below) . Graham Mitchell came second with 'Historic Houses, Freudenburg, Germany' and David's 'Atlas Fountain, Castle Howard' was third. Continuing to stalk the winner, Graeme's 'Architectural Detail, Allianz Stadium, Munich' was highly commended. Our judge, Colin Williams, gave clear and constructive comments as well as scores. Our thanks to him for a very successful competition.
