Andy Mitchell the CEO of Tideway will present the annual Lecture on Tuesday 14th June. The River Thames is central to London’s prosperity, but in recent years it has reverted to a role it last played more than 150 years ago — regularly acting as an open sewer. Tideway’s ambition is not only to clean up the river with the construction of a super sewer, but to reconnect Londoners with the River Thames for both business and leisure.
The lecture will be followed by a dinner. Click here for details and booking form. All proceeds go to the Company Charity, so please make your payment to the account shown on the form.

The Plumbers’ have managed to secure some seats and places are very limited, so if you would like to come along and enjoy a very exclusive evening, book as soon as possible.

It was a good race and very close. Weather conditions were much better than expected with a fair wind - it could have been a bit stronger for us which would have favoured our boat, very kindly loaned to us by Chris Sneath's daughter and son-in-law. We crossed the line second and after all the handicaps had been worked out, no prizes for the Plumbers. The Stationers and Marketors were first, Innholders second and Dyers third. However, we were awarded the Lady Libby Trophy at the discretion of the Commodore for having the youngest skipper, Chris Sneath's 17 year old grandson, who did a cracking job marshalling his crew!
