Coronavirus and the Watermen’s Company

Listening to the Prime Minister and Government advice yesterday evening and knowing the spread of coronavirus is only going to get worse, regretfully the time has come to cancel our events and meetings for the foreseeable future at least until Easter.

Many other businesses and most other Livery Halls together with the Corporation are all taking similar steps.

We will not hold any further meetings for the current Committee round. We will take a decision as to whether to try a conference call for the Court on 1st April, but we will not be meeting together here.

Watermen’s Hall staff will wherever possible work from home.

You can stay in touch with what’s happening through announcements on the website – Also, the Clerk can be contacting through his mobile – 07901 747 261

These are unprecedented times. Stay safe and we will all get through this by working together.
