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 The Clerk and Webmaster will have the final say on what will and will not be published!

Your webmaster has safely returned from a very relaxing week on the Kennet & Avon Canal.  We cruised between Devizes, our first home, and Bath. A great way to see countryside that normally passes you by.

But don’t forget your waterproofs when it rains!

So it’s back to (virtual!) reality. The one constant in our lives at the moment! We are clearly going to have to wait until the new year to see we how things develop. In the meanwhile, we still have our virtual events for you to enjoy. We held the first, a wine tasting, on 29 September and there is a cheese and wine evening on 18 November, plus a lecture on 28 October.  The wine tasting was an enjoyable, relaxing evening and chance to catch up with friends and colleagues:

  Virtual Wine Tasting

The cheese and wine evening promises to be equally enjoyable, so book a place as soon as they become available.

The virtual lecture is open for bookings and is being hosted by the CIPHE. Many people have already booked to see it, so why not join them if you haven’t. It’s free.

And there are still the virtual tours of London courtesy of the Temple Bar Trust and the City of London Guides:

If you haven’t done anything like this before give them a try.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

The Master has written to us as he prepares to enter his second year, click on his picture to read it:

 

And the Lord Mayor has also sent a message to us all as he enters his second year in office too, again click on his picture to read it:

 

Here’s hoping the full programme of events planned for next year will take place. All the dates are on the website on the forthcoming events page  and you will receive a hard copy in the post; copy the dates into your own diary now so you don’t forget and miss out.

I’ve kept all the old quizzes on a separate page if you want to use them.

Whatever you are doing I hope you all keep well and stay safe.
