Signing off for the holiday season

Tomorrow we have our third Great Event of the year, the Lord Mayor's Banquet at Mansion House. I am personally looking forward to it very much.

Afterwards, many members will be going on holiday, although the preparations for our Charter event in October will continue throughout the summer.

If you want some light holiday reading, try C J Sansom's "Dark Fire", a mediaeval murder mystery set entirely in the City of London. I have been intrigued by the 1540 map drawn inside the front cover, showing so many of today's streets with the same names, the Fleet River, Smithfield when it was a field etc. It's one of a series but stands alone if you haven't read the others.

Your correspondent will be back in a few weeks' time.
