Liverymen and Members’ Corner

 

This page has been set up during the Coronavirus outbreak as a point of contact for all our members to keep in touch and also provide some light relief from the lockdown. Is there anything useful or helpful from work or your professional body that you could share with other Liverymen and members? Do you have any interesting or funny articles, stories or jokes. Have you done anything interesting, that may not have gone quite to plan? Have you discovered something? Any item will do; the aim is to keep it informative and positive and also, where appropriate, lighthearted and to lift peoples spirits. If you have anything please email it to the Clerk. The Clerk and Webmaster will have the final say on what will and will not be published!

We are running a weekly quiz and the seventh one is now available, a fairly challenging General Knowledge quiz!  The answers to last week’s Who’s Who picture quiz can also now be seen below.  The answers to each quiz are published after a week with the next set of questions.  The deadline has now passed to complete the Livery Companies Charity quiz, so please don’t send any more answers in.  My thanks to the various members who have sent in other items that can be seen below the quizzes:

Lockdown lingo – are you fully conversant with the new terminology? Two more definitions, from various members:

Goutbreak
The sudden fear that you’ve consumed so much wine, cheese, home-made cake and Easter chocolate in lockdown that your ankles are swelling up like a medieval king’s.

Coughin’ Dodger
Someone so alarmed by an innocuous splutter or throat-clear that they back away in terror.

That’s it folks, unless anyone has any more!
