14th October 2014 - Freeman and Livery

I was appointed a Freeman of the Information Technologists Compnay in 1997 but needed to get this properly authorised by the Corporation of London before I could be installed as a Liveryman on 14th Oct 14

The Declaration of a Freeman I had to take at Guildhall
With the Clerk and Beadle at my Freeman Ceremony
In the Priory Church of St Bartholomew the Great for the Installation Service. It was WONDERFUL
Taking the Oath with Nic Birtles (newly to be installed Master)
Receiving the sash, certificate from the outgoing Master.
The Certificate
Goldsmith's Hall. With my sash! Note my MBE - the first time I have ever been able to wear it.
Goldsmiths Hall laid out in long tables for our dinner. There were REAL candles in the chandeliers.
Sarah and Elizabeth looked really lovely in their long dresses
