The Worshipful Company of Plumbers aims to support and make a difference within the ancient industry of plumbing. We assist and support charities and trainees, partner our industry through affiliations, and work closely with the Lord Mayor and the City of London.
On Thursday, 30th November 2023, the first social event of the new Master’s year saw 27 Company members and guests join the Master and Mistress, David and Kathy Adams, on a visit to the Marylebone Cricket Club (“MCC”), the Home of Cricket.
Held each November, and this year on the 14th, the Ladle Dinner is a tradition within the Worshipful Company of Plumbers going back about a century. It provides the opportunity for members of the Livery to thank the Immediate Past Master for his service as Master, and is a dinner chaired by the outgoing Senior Steward.
On Saturday, 11th November 2023, our second year appearing in the Show, our walkers were the Master, Upper Warden, Renter Warden, and Clerk, and we were dressed in WCoP badged blue boilers suits and caps. [Almost unrecognisable out of their gowns!] There was no doubt as to who we were, and we generated a lot of cheers from the crowd and many requests to mend boilers and similar work!
During the St Michael’s Day Service this year, Father Philip announced that two treasures, an Alms Basin and a Paten from St Michael’s, Crooked Lane, had been returned to St Magnus-the-Martyr Church and they were on display for us to see after the service.
Through fundraising and by direct activity, we help charities and not-for-profits in the UK and around the world ensure a better future for both individuals and their communities. The City Liveries together raised over £75M in 2021 and have made a significant difference to the lives of millions. Become a part of our charitable history.
