18 The Worshipful Company of Insurers' Court Dinner at Apothecaries Hall

Thursday 17th July 2014

Following a reception in the cool Courtyard, we filed into Dinner in Apothecaries Hall, which must be one of the most beautiful in London. The discipline of black tie and badges on one of the hotest evenings this year was relieved by the Master announcing in his opening remarks that those present could remove their jackets on payment of a fine - the purchase of a fund raising tie from the Master Apothecary. Decorum prevailed and no fines were required!

Another most enjoyable evening which marked the end of my first six weeks representing the Company as the Master. There is now a seven week break which I shall use to prepare with our new Clerk the Livery schedule for the rest of my year - and to catch up on my work in the office! See you in September!
