Liveryman Mike Lee (our Representative on C & G Council) and I represented the Company, in this the 140th Anniversary of the foundation of City & Guilds. The presentations were made by The Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor, Alderman Peter Estlin. We were one of fourteen companies presenting prizes. Shaun Dixon, of Coleg Cambria-Deeside College, was our winner, but unfortunately was unable to attend and so last year’s winner Victor Walsh, his lecturer accepted the prize on his behalf.
There were also presentations under the Master Certificate Scheme, under the auspices of the Livery Skills Council, to Masters, Journeymen and Apprentices of the 10 Livery companies involved. This scheme is a little younger than City & Guilds, having been formed in 2001.
