At the annual Common Hall meeting (AGM) and Dinner of members held 2nd November 2018, Liveryman Stephen Thomas was elected to serve as Master Lightmonger for 2018/19.
In his speech after the Dinner the Master paid tribute to the excellent way in which the Deputy Master Barbara Harding and her Consort John, had represented and promoted the Company during their year of office as Master.
Stephen thanked all Members for the trust they have placed in him to be Master Lightmonger for the 2018/19 year and undertook that he would be enthusiastic in representing and promoting the Lightmongers at every opportunity. During the year he would seek to encourage all members to participate in all the events that they can and to support the work of the Lightmongers Charitable Trust.
The Deputy Master, Barbara Harding, in her speech thanked Members for the privilege, that she and John had enjoyed, of representing the Company over the past year, during which time they had also observed how well respected the Lightmongers are in the City of London Livery movement.
The installation dinner was attended by 72 members, who all enjoyed a superb meal and plenty of conversation in the wonderful setting of Tallow Chandlers Hall (our home base). Another a great evening and if you want to note the date for next year, it will be on Friday 1st November 2019!
