Autumn Court and Dinner at Boisdale, Canary Wharf

Monday 10th September 2012

We held our Autumn Court Meeting at Glaziers Hall with a crowded Agenda covering a wide range of subjects. In particular, we acknowledged our Clerk, Peter Swanson's, decision to step down next June and discussed the procedure for recruiting his successor. The Court approved the combination of the roles of Clerk to the Company and Secretary to the Benevolent Fund. We also witnessed the Freedom Declarations of Nicola Snook and Terry Fenner-Letao and gowned Nick Keveth with the Livery. It's always a special pleasure, as Master, to be able to welcome new Members.

Afterwards, we adjourned to Boisdale in Canary Wharf in order to avail ourselves of its excellent smoking balcony after dinner. A convivial evening was therefore rounded off in a manner entirely suttable to the Company. I enjoyed a very good Romeo y Julieta!
