Some sad news

We are very sorry to report the death of Emeritus Past Master Richard Walker-Arnott on 4th April 2022. An eulogy given by Past Master Nigel Berman to the Court is available here. Richard was Master in 1990.

We are also very sorry to report that Emeritus Past Master John Northcott MBE died on 18th May 2022. John was Master in 1996.

Livery Company "did you know"....

There was a 400 year gap between the formation of the Carmen's Company in 1517 (number 77 in precedence) and the Master Mariners' Company in 1926 (number 78 in precedence). The 32 Livery Companies formed since 1926 are know as the "Modern Livery Companies".

The Carmen used to regulate "traffic" in the City of London - the early day tax disc - and every year they hold a Cartmaking ceremony at Guildhall to commemorate those days. It is certainly worth watching and this year it takes place on Saturday 16th July.

The Master Mariners are well known for being the only Company with a "Hall" that is not bricks and mortar - it is HQS Wellington on the Thames!

And finally...

Don't forget the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park on Sunday 7th August 2022.

On August Bank Holiday Monday, 29th August 2022, we have a family racing day at Epsom. Note the date, and details to follow.
