Due to the current health emergency and in order to abide by recent Government restrictions, the Master has agreed with the recommendation of the Past Masters’ Committee, that the Installation Court, scheduled to take place on 17th April 2020, should be postponed for the time being. This in effect means that Ian Grundy will continue to serve as Master, supported by Tony Jarvis and Julian Ellis as Wardens, until such time as it becomes possible to install their successors in the traditional way.
Meanwhile, the Master, Wardens and Court of Assistants send their best wishes to all members of the Company, hoping that you stay safe and well during these unprecedented times.
