Would you like to become a Common Councilman or Sheriff? 13th May 2010

The Master of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, Charles Hughes, faced every Master's nightmare last week, when his guest speaker for a Business Lunch fell ill and was unable to attend. But he had a great stand-in, because Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley was there to play the organ, and was able at short notice to deliver an entertaining after-lunch speech too.

The Master and Dr Parmley had two important messages for us:

  1. The Livery needs to promote itself more strongly, communicating especially the extent of its charitable giving and its pro bono outreach work for charities, schools and other deserving organisations.

  2. The Corporation of London is keen to encourage liverymen to put themselves forward as prospective Common Councilmen and Sheriffs. Dr Parmley is willing to talk to anyone who would like to find out more. You can contact him at

I'm sure that our own Alderman and Past Master, Sir Paul Judge, would also be willing to give advice.
