Your next Master and Wardens have been elected
It’s been a long wait, two years to be exact, but the Court met virtually on 6 July 2021 to elect a new Master and Wardens for 2021/2022.
Master Elect for 2021 – 2022 Nicholas Jones
As you all know, the current Master and Wardens have served two years in post as we endured the COVID-19 restrictions. We had hoped the 6th July 2021 would be our first full social event for over a year, but the pandemic had its latest bite and we must now wait until September to enjoy our ‘Welcome Back’ Summer Festival.
So the Court meeting planned for Salters’ Hall had to be held virtually (again). Dr Peter Rumley has had a unique couple of years as the current Master, but at least he will be able to go out in style with live events back on the calendar. Under normal circumstances, it is traditional for the July Court meeting to be held just before the Summer Festival and to elect our new officers for the forthcoming year in preparation for their installation in October. That election still took place, albeit ‘on camera’ and they will be:
Nicholas (Nick) Jones, Upper Warden & Master Elect
Paul Nash, Renter Warden & Upper Warden Elect
David Adams, Senior Assistant & Renter Warden Elect
The Court also re-elected Adrian Mumford as our Learned Clerk and Peter Thomson as our Beadle.
We look forward to seeing them all – and you – at Salters’ Hall in September.
