The Masters of recent years have led a quiet but very significant revolution, bringing the Company through a period of change into this new century, maintaining strong membership, good governance and sound finances with good functions and a wide range of activities arranged by active societies. Immediate Past Master John Carpenter has very ably continued this remarkable period of change well supported by Beverley.
I hope to exercise what in sailing parlance is a "gentle hand on the tiller" with a feel for both the current and the wind, and using the benefit of the good course already set and looking to further develop our membership with an emphasis on our Community, comradeship, conviviality, developing our charity and with a leaning to culture, both in the arts and viniculture, and to further improve our communications.
We have a good diary of events for the year with the spring livery dinner on April 27th at Stationers Hall. The Master's Jolly leaves England for the Emerald Isle on the 11th May where we will be staying at Ballymaloe House, the home of the famous cookery school. The family day at Amberley Working Museum will feature a Paviors award and sponsorship and the highlight of the golfing year will be an amazing charity initiative at Woburn on July 19th. There will be lots more, so keep up to date on our website and with the Pavior.
Master of the Worshipful Company of Paviors
