Installation of New Master and Wardens

On 2nd October The Installation Dinner was held at Skinners' Hall where the Master Anthony de Lacey installed Andrew Whitton as the new Master and he then installed Philip Law as Senior Warden and John Mill as Junior Warden.

The Company enjoyed duck for dinner whilst being entertained with some jazz from Guildhall School of Music students. The Company has an association with the school sponsoring an annual woodwind competition.

The Dinner was preceded by a Court Meeting at which liverymen Angie Lewis, Sue Sumner and Tony Pattison were welcomed to the Court taking their place as Assistants. Carolyn Ezekiel was admitted to the livery. Already a very popular member, Carolyn has been involved for many years with her husband a Past Master.

The Annual Service preceded the dinner and was as usual held at St James Garlickhythe led by the Honorary Chaplain The Right Reverend Christopher Chessun Bishop of Southwark. Alderman Dr Sir Andrew Parmley played the organ.
