Awards Dinner 2018

The Annual Awards Dinner was held on 4th July at Stationers' Hall

Master and Wardens with our newest Liveryman

As usual, a Court meeting was held prior to the dinner and we were pleased to welcome new Liveryman Rosemary Charles.

We were also very pleased to have Dr Kevin Stenson Chief Executive of the Smallpeice Trust as our guest speaker and he was accompanied by Georgina Hare of the Arkwright Trust with whom we have established an engineering scholarship. Liverymen and guests were very interested in what he had to say about the need for more young people to study STEM subjects. A copy of his speech can be downloaded here.
