When status counts

Went to the Royal Charter Ceremony of the Worshipful Company of Marketors last night!

Apparently it was in 1135 that the very first livery company - the Weavers - was awarded the Royal Charter. So it's only taken marketing another 875 years. It's in recognition of the company's services to the profession and to the City.

Seriously though, the pomp and ceremony was spectacular - particularly the pikemen. The Guildhall surroundings were awesome. And HRH The Duke of Edinburgh added a touch of glamour.

Congrats to Past Master Keith Arundale and Present Master Venetial Howes for making it happen.
