A warm welcome to the Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters, one of the City of London's Livery Companies, collectively known as 'the Livery'.
We are very proud that our Past Master, Liz Green has succeeded in her bid to be elected as Non-Aldermanic Sheriff for the ensuing year taking up the post on 28th September. This is wonderful news for Liz and her family, as well as for the Company especially as she will not only be the first Framework Knitter to be elected as Sheriff for a great many years, but also our first ever Lady Sheriff! While Liz has already thanked her many supporters, the Master would like to add her thanks and appreciation to all those Framework Knitters who supported Liz and especially those who travelled to London on 25th June to vote for her at Guildhall.
City Matters carried a report on the election of Liz and Vincent Keaveny as the Sheriffs for the year (click to read).
The photo below shows a sea of supporters raising yellow voting cards (helpfully labelled 'Green') to elect Liz. Liz's website can be viewed here.
