Freedom of the City

The latest Freeman of the Tobacco Pipe Makers and Tobacco Blenders to receive his Freedom of the City today in a virtual Ceremony is Lieutenant Colonel Geoffrey Strickland, formerly Commanding Officer of the London Regiment.

Geoffrey joins fellow members of the Company - Kate Woodley, Charles Bennett-Baggs, Mario Cescutti, Simon Millson and Frederik Vandermarliere who have all received their Freedom of the City by Virtual Ceremony during 2020.

Apart from Charles who has already become a Liveryman, we look forward to 2021 and to Kate, Mario, Simon, Frederik and Geoffrey being 'Gowned' in the Livery and becoming full members of the Company.
