    Throughout its 653-year history, the Worshipful Company of Plumbers has valued the role of apprenticeships. The Apprentice’s Statue in London’s Cannon Street Station is a public demonstration of the part which apprentices play in the plumbing industry.  On Tuesday 13 March 2018  bursaries will be presented to a number of people who are currently undergoing training to become qualified to work in the industry.  Come and join us for the ceremony followed by lunch in The Vintry.  For flyer and booking form, click here.

  • From the Master -Treloar’s School

    Posted on 6th February 2018 From the Master -Treloar’s School

    Sheila and I were both moved and inspired by our visit yesterday with the Lord Mayor and some 50 other Livery Masters and consorts to Treloar's School in Alton.  I am not sure that the Plumbers have traditionally done much to support the School (unlike a few other Companies whose efforts were highlighted yesterday) and I wondered whether we couldn't at least do a little awareness-raising.  

    On 28 March 2018 an event called The Treloar Talks will take place in Glaziers' Hall. I have been invited as Master Plumber- and will attend.

    Tickets are available for sale at £30 and there is an interesting line-up of 4 speakers with the event being chaired by Alastair Stewart OBE (News at Ten).   For further details click here .
