The Harry Gration connection
Graham W reports from the archives... Many will have seen that Harry Gration has just retired from Look North after 40 years with the BBC. York Rotary has a particular reason for acknowledging Harry, as he was a great help in publicising the first few Dragon Boat Challenges and in particular the first DBC in 2003 where he played a very supportive part. We wish him well in his retirement.
The first photo shows a Press photo of the younger looking Harry with the younger looking Frank Paterson, the President in the run-up to the 2003 DBC.
The second photo shows Harry with the younger looking Robin Rich who was President at the 2003 DBC itself - when Harry was involved with the presentations.
