Annual Dinner 2018

TO ALL CRAFT OWNING FREEMEN

ANNUAL DINNER – TUESDAY 20th FEBRUARY 2018

The Annual Dinner of the Company is due to be held at Fishmongers’ Hall (with the kind permission of the Court of the Fishmongers’ Company), London Bridge, London EC4 on Tuesday 20th February 2018 at 7.00 for 7.30 pm. The Master has asked Rt. Hon. John Hayes MP who was the Shipping Minister until the reshuffle. John Hayes had accepted the Master’s invitation, but we are waiting to see what effect this will have.

In recent years, the Master has been tasked with deciding on guests at the Annual Dinner and the Court has decided the decision should continue to be left with each Master.

Our Master, Simon McCarthy, continues to hope that Craft Owning Freemen will still bring business guests to the Annual Dinner, and in addition, the partners of Craft Owning Freemen will be equally welcome as guests when you apply for tickets. The invitation to apply for tickets is attached.

Yours sincerely

Colin Middlemiss – The Clerk
