“HMS Sultan will be holding its annual Livery Companys’ Visit Day on Thursday 2nd October 2014, to which all Liverymen are invited. It is the Royal Navy’s Engineering training base and the Plumbers provide the annual prize to the top trainee in metalwork. Located on the south coast in Gosport, it is a fascinating and informative visit. This year they are fortunate to have the Royal Navy Presentation Team as well, so it promises to be even better. The visit lasts all day and includes all the Livery Companies with links to the unit. If you would like to attend please let the office know by Monday 15th September 2014. Full details will be sent out once the numbers have been confirmed.” Click here to read the invitation letter.

Well done and thank you Wendy.
Thirty Golfers, Liverymen and their guests, enjoyed a great day at New Zealand Golf Club in Surrey. After a cup of coffee and bacon roll to fortify everyone, we all set off in pairs in great golfing weather - no wind, warm and not too sunny. The Club laid on a very welcome drinks station half way round the first 9 holes and the Master joined us on the course in his chauffeur driven buggy to watch us coming in - thank you to John Demont, our Chairman and the driver, who had a shoulder injury and couldn't play.
