The Livery Committee Dinner at Trinity House8th June 2015
Nigel Pullman, Chairman of the Committee was our host at Trinity House for the annual Livery Committee dinner. The Livery Committee was set up a century ago to manage the proceedings at Common Hall, in particular the election of the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs. In addition they act as an inter livery communication channel and very good they are too. Look at their web site if you want to understand the City, what is going on and how it works. It is an excellent web site and I commend it to you It was a splendid affair in wonderful surroundings known to us quite recently since past master Mark Gower Smith chose Trinity House for our January dinner. The Trinity House Corporation is primarlly concerned with safety at sea, which means lighthouses amongst other things and with the welfare of seafarers A suitably nautical motif of a lighthouse on each table after which the table was named was chosen as the dining room theme. The guest speaker was the soon to be past Master of the Mercers, Deborah Ounsted, their first lady Master. Great speech, great dinner.
