Nearly 100 key suppliers, news publishers and wholesalers joined with senior officials last week to celebrate 100 years of the NFRN.

The Federation celebrated the achievement at News UK’s headquarters in London  NFRN national president Mike Mitchelson said: “We wanted to invite suppliers we had either dealt with, or want to deal with, to acknowledge them and thank them for their support. I’d also like to thank our members and senior management who were there to help out.”

News UK’s retail director, Neil Spencer, presented the organisation with a copy of the front page of The Times from 100 years ago, which featured a news story announcing the launch of the trade body.
