When he discovered Mark’s collection he wanted to help share it with the people who live here as well as visitors to the town. He discussed the idea of a large installation at Great Yarmouth Train Station with Alan Trett, the station manager, who helped to find a space at the train station to display the photographs. originalprojects; then commissioned artist Tom Pearman to take the photographs and find a way to display them that would enhance their qualities. Tom has taken the photographs and reflected them to emphasise the vanishing points

GREAT YARMOUTH GROWTH
This week sees the start of stage one of a key development, Repro Arts the most easterly printer in the UK, based on the Renewable Energy Park adjacent to the Great Yarmouth Seafront, its home for almost twenty five years gains a major development on their door step. The first stage of the development commenced this week and work will cost over seven million pounds followed by two further stages, and will be completed by this time next year.
This Key development is a major boost for Great Yarmouth tourist industry adjacent to the Pleasure Beach, The Edge development planned by Albert Jones is a vast investment for the seafront area and is guaranteed to boost tourism, an 81 bedroom Premier Inn and a Beefeater restaurant by the Pleasure Beach opening at the same time. The second phase will see the building of a cinema with eight screens, five chain restaurants and an indoor play area.
The planned third stage will be a casino and there would also be a multi-storey car park built.
This development combined with the recent announcement that Great Yarmouth will hoste the Air Show over the sea front this summer means the sky is the limit on the east coast.
The development on a strip of land between the edge of the sea and the Marine Parade will extend the length of the seafront drive to the south towards the outer harbour complex and will be the first new building on the seaward side since the SeaLife Centre arrived in Great Yarmouth.
Even the sea is covered as the giant cruise ship The Seabourn Quest heads for Great Yarmouth laiden with hundreds of passengers, tourist ready to visit the Golden Mile and other local attractions, shops and restaurants. Places of historic importance and interest like the renowned Nelson Museum and Nelson’s monument next to Repro Arts will also be on the tour list when the giant cruise ship docks at the towns port this summer season. Visitors pick up a copy of the Great Yarmouth Mercury for all the area attractions.
This development and that of the Air Show which is organised by the Great Yarmouth Tourist Information will have a knock on effect for other attractions in the Norfolk and Suffolk area, as more tourists are attracted by the Air Show this year and the opening of The Edge next year. Attractions can plan for increased visitors for the coming years.
The upgrades to the A 47 will be finished for the summer season for safer and easier travel by road linking Great Yarmouth with the A12 and the National road network. Up grades to local roundabouts and roads will also be finished with Rail network repairs complete for a smooth running summer.
Development of the old Pontins holiday park area is also a hot topic in the news as Hemsby residents review plans for the new residential Development adding another large construction project in the the surrounding area.

Plans for a third river crossing are well under way , this access point will give the Energy Park access to the road networks. With the Great Yarmouth council looking to encourage renewable energy companies into the area to work alongside the well established Oil and Gas companies. It’s not just national companies, local stores in the town centre can claim grants towards replacing old signage, reflecting a smarter, brighter image to encourage shoppers back to the town centre. New national store opening soon will need staff, offering job opportunities in the town centre for local people as another flagship store chooses Great Yarmouth.The future looks bright. The MP for Great Yarmouth Brandon Lewis who has recently changed office in the last cabinet reshuffle has put Great Yarmouth on the political map, drawing attention to the town.

Solving a print buyers problem
This is some thing that we love to do offer a solution that solves a print problem. One of the most common problems is printing white. The question is can white be printed. The simple answer is it can be achieved.
There are two ways in which white can be printed by screen print or wide format printing.
However there are many uses for printing white ink by either method.
The white ink can be printed on to transparent materials both flexible and rigid. The white ink can be printed correct reading to be viewed from the face or the image can be printed in reverse. This enables the image to be viewed through the transparent material correct reading. The most common use for this is window graphics.
Reverse image printed in full colour on to clear material can be enhanced with a print of spot white. Printing white ink on selected areas behind the full colour printed image. Leaving transparent areas this could be an area for a TV or computer screen to be viewed.
White ink can also be printed on to dark colour ink that has already been printed on to a sheet. This enables white text or logo to be over printed on the dark coloured ink. Ideal for adding information to already printed material.
Printing white ink can also be used for variable printing. Each print may need a number, name or additional information printed over the main image.
A wealth of printing options can be achieved from white.
Variable wide format printing what is it
Large format printing has changed so much over the past few years. Most print buyers, Retailers & Companies have not realised the change in options of print. Working with old concepts they produce print campaign after print campaign that mirror one another with only a change of wording.
Variable wide format printing in full colour changes this. Everyone knows the value of a Brand. Now the printed Brand message can be taken further. The Brad image can be printed with variable data. This can be in the form of a local message. An image of each store manager. The local venue or message.
The data can change from one print to the next while carrying the same format with the corporate Branding.
Prints can have a local phone number, national or free phone numbers printed as variable data. Creating a national Brand with a local feel.
Printed campaigns can now be produced to promote the Brand in vibrant full colour giving high visual awareness on a National level with that local or personal quality.
Is it time to look at your printing requirements & shape them up for the twenty first century. Produce print with punch & shape that will get your message across to your coustomers.
Are you in Retail one store or more stores. Now is the ideal time to think about that Christmas campaign. Get that grey matter on the move. Do not leave it until the last minute. This year be on top of it.
It will pay to be organised. It will give you more time to do all the things you said you should have done last year. Your stores will have that prefrontal look. This will pay off because a well planed campaign increases the foot fall in your stores. Increased foot fall leads to a higher spend per visit.
There are some great ideas this year floor graphics & ceiling graphics use once.
Hanging cards, Window graphics. Large banners, Bollard signs. What an array of special inks to be printed from glitter to Gold. Yes they all have a shelf life so you can store and re use the following year. Just do not put a date on your Point of Sale campaign. Next year you can freshen up your store with some additional prints.
You could also arrange your January SALE Point of Sale campaign to be delivered in December now that is forward planning.
All Point of Sale can be printed by wide format printing or Screen printing or both. Printing can be finished with die cutting, hand finishing or Large format printing can be profile cut. Point of Sale and printing can be collated in to Store packs & dispatched Nation wide via our partner UPS.
