On the 26th January I had the great honour and privilege of being installed as Master Loriner for the forthcoming year. I am delighted to be joined by Upper Warden Nicholas Bensted-Smith, and Under Warden John Morton.
I joined the Company in 2002 and the Court in 2014 since which time I have acted as Steward for the Ebony Horse Club, the United Kingdom Armed Forces Equestrian Association, the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment and the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery and have also chaired the Livery, Trade, and Finance Committees.
In May this year I will have been married to Anne for 45 years. We have a son, Richard and daughter, Suzanne and I was proud to have the honour of admitting Suzanne as a Freeman of the Company as my first act as Master immediately following my installation. Anne and I are also blessed with two grandchildren Sophia and Kai.
Anne and I undoubtedly have a busy year ahead and can now look forward to representing the Loriners, supporting our charities and expanding the number and range of Loriner events.
Anne and I look forward to meeting as many Loriners as we possibly can at the many functions occurring during 2023. Meanwhile thank you for your continued support of our historic Company.
