Hitachi Rail at Newton Aycliffe visit
Group photo of some of the Teesside members and guests after completing a guided tour of Hitachi Rail at Newton Aycliffe, on 22 February 2018.
InstMC Teesside Section members and their guests had a very pleasant experience with some of the party missing out on the group photo as they were too engrossed in the Trains and the power sources. From the smiles on the faces it proves the visit was enjoyed by all.
Teesside Section on Target – Some of the Time
The photo shows members of the Teesside Section and their guests after an enjoyable evening shooting clays. On a long warm June evening, two days after the summer solstice, we enjoyed good company, good food and a varied set of challenges in the shooting.
2015 Annual Dinner & Reunion
Teesside Instrument Engineers Support MRI Scanner Appeal
The Annual Dinner & Reunion of the Teesside Section has been hailed as "one of the best ever". Mr Norman Harrison, completing his final year in post spoke of the achievements of the Section over the previous year, a sentiment echoed by the principal speaker Dr Graeme Philp, Hon Secretary Elect of the InstMC and CEO of Gambica, the Instrumentation, Control and Automation trade association.
Dr Philp spoke at length of the fundamental changes which have recently occurred in respect of the Institute's governance and what this means to the membership at large. He also spoke of major government initiatives in support of the engineering profession, this being a key plank in the repatriation of manufacturing to the UK.
The real entertainment was provided by comedian Lea Roberts an ex Halifax rugby player. Lea provided us with non-stop mirth of the best kind.
The evening concluded with a prize draw in aid of upgrading MRI scanners at the South Cleveland Hospital. Pictured with Mr Norman Harrison (Right) is the Chair of the appeal fund, Dr Adrian Davies following an announcement that the amount raised was £1835, a sum which will be matched from the Section's charitable fund.
