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 succeeded in her bid to be elected as Non-Aldermanic Sheriff for 2018-19. She was elected at Common Hall on 24th June and formally took up the post on 28th September. The photo below shows a sea of supporters raising yellow voting cards (helpfully labelled 'Green') to vote for her.
Not only is she the first Framework Knitter to be elected as Sheriff for a great many years, but also our first ever Lady Sheriff! The photo below shows her in her robe of office after the installation ceremony:
