Plaisterers and the General


The Plaisterers Hall is, of course, our home in that it is where our Clerks office is located. It also gives us the prestigious address of One London Wall. It was therefore a double delight to attend the Worshipful Company of Plaisterers Annual Banquet, particularly as we were one of only three Livery Companies so invited. Accompanied by the Mistress, Brenda, and also the Clerk, Adele, we were warmly greeted by the Master, Peter Baker, and his Wardens. An excellent four course dinner followed by both entertainment and speakers of a high order. In particular General Lord Dannatt who gave a fascinating incite into his lengthy career. It really was genuinely interesting and strengthened the resolve of those there to support our armed forces.

While the Loving Cup and the Stirrup Cup were familiar, there were two interesting additions to the proceeding for us; the inclusion of snuff, which everyone seemed to try to varying effect, and the circulation of a rose bowl. New to us but clearly not the Plaisterers. So the question is, should the Marketors consider them for future events?
