The Master and Dr Parmley had two important messages for us:
- 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.
- 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 mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm sure that our own Alderman and Past Master, Sir Paul Judge, would also be willing to give advice.
