Our 39th Master, Nick Dumbreck, was installed at Saddlers’ Hall on 6 July. This was followed by a splendid dinner, attended by 110 people. The principal guest speaker was Mr Clive Bannister, CEO of the Phoenix Group and Chairman of the Trustees of the City of London Museum. He gave a very interesting speech highlighting, in particular, exciting future plans for the Museum and its new home.
By coincidence, our senior Livery guests were the Goldsmiths’ Company who, earlier that week, had donated £10 million to the new Museum.
