On the 20th of August we welcome the 108 years old yacht Senora into Keel Square. For the public appeal we have worked on making a nautical soundtrack for the event as well as hosting performing bands! The event is aimed to be able to fund enough money to save the old beauty from the scrap heap and to instead be restored to its former glory. The 50 foot long yacht will be transported via lorry into Keel Square, where we will be live streaming the journey from Wearmouth bridge to our Facebook page on Saturday at 11am.
We are ecstatic to be included in this project which helps take a step towards the return of shipbuilding in Sunderland; this will really hit home in remembering our heritage and being one of the biggest shipbuilding cities in the world!
As part of an innovative training program from Senora Trust and Monumental Training, 18 young apprentices will finish restoring Senora where she will then belong to the community as ‘The People’s Yacht’ to showcase the work that the apprentices have done on restoring her. She will then be available for charities, groups and aspiring sailors for activities such as day trips and practicing sailing skills!

Overwatch was Blizzard’s new pet project that was destined to expand the competitive first person shooter style that Team Fortress 2 adapted to consoles, and it definitely did just that. For those who didn’t spend hundreds of hours playing TF2, it’s a FPS/Objective based game that tends to be much more competitive team game types with a wide array of different characters and play styles to choose from, as opposed to creating your own class such as Call of Duty or Battlefield.
To continue with our early pre-releases for our BAMM magazine, we have another film review, this time from Clare Holyoak who has wrote about the tear-jerking tale ‘A Girl Like Her’. The film is rather thought provokingly tagged as being based on ‘a million true stories’ which really puts it into perspective.
Our next piece, comes from Rebecca Crackett, who writes about one of the finely tucked away restaurants in the middle of Newcastle!

In BAMM, fashion will also be featured, therefore we thought we’d give you a little taster of that too! Check out the article below about the local graduate girl, Jane Wimpenny, who is changing the World of fashion for the better!
