7 Election of Sheriffs' Luncheon at Painters' Hall

Tuesday 24th June 2014

Following the Election of the Sheriffs, we joined nine other Livery Companies for Luncheon at Painters' Hall. The two Sheriffs Elect joined us during the meal and were welcomed with applause and cheering.

As Master of the Mother Company of a Sheriif, I had the privilege of responding to the toast to the Guests. When I rose to speak, I was greeted by a very loud cheer that erupted from the Tobacco Pipe makers' table! it was a pleasure to have on our table, Lord Strathalmond, who chaired Fiona's Election Committee.
