Inter Livery Halls Sponsored Walk

Thursday 20th September 2012

Ron Kirk, the Renter Warden, and I joined the Sponsored Walk visiting all 40 Livery Halls in the City, organised for the seventh year by the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners. We were told before setting off from Armourers and Braziers Hall that the distance to be covered was 8.3 miles but by the finish at Grocers Hall a claim of over ten miles measured by some digital device was lodged.

We were a party of 44 and made a fine sight in our gowns, much to the delight of sundry tourists along the way. We were well refreshed by the Information Technologists, Drapers, Vintners, Master Mariners and Grocers, while a most welcome lunch was kindly provided at Bakers Hall, still intact despite the price of wheat.
