I have been a Liveryman for two years and have very much enjoyed attending a variety of events such as Mansion House Banquet, Livery Dinners, and the Loriners’ Polo Match at the Guards’ Polo Club. I am also pleased to be part of the Livery Committee and helped to organise the joint Charity Ball with the Curriers’ Company. Together with the Committee we are looking at ways in which we can encourage younger members to join the Company – bearing in mind the many calls on the time of those who are at the beginning of their careers.
I work in Canary Wharf in the financial services world and much enjoy being part of an organisation which is both charitable and fun.AlanLiveryman
