To cover some of the events in December I will revert to diary form.
Friday 2nd December
In last week’s blog I covered the first part of the Marketors’ trip to Chile, the country where I met and married my wife Carmen when I was living and working there in the early 1980s.
It is customary for the Master of the Marketors to lead a trip somewhere during his year as it is with all Livery companies. Sometimes this may just be for a weekend in an historic city in the UK. Sometimes it may be overseas.
As we head towards the end of the year, The Marketors is looking ahead to the predicted trends for 2017.
Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley is the new Lord Mayor of London.
Every year, on the Friday before the second Sunday in November, the new Lord Mayor is sworn into office at the Guildhall.
