Fifteen Freemen were admitted to the Company on Tuesday 1 March, the largest number by quite a margin for many a year. The new Freemen were briefed by the Clerk before the admission ceremony at Barber-Surgeons’ Hall, conducted by the Master. Court members, Freemen and guests then processed to Guildhall where 7 of the Freemen were admitted to the Freedom of the City of London. This was then followed by the Admission Day Dinner where the only external guest was Laura Miller, Deputy Clerk of the Chamberlain’s Court, who had conducted the Freedom ceremony earlier in the day. New Freemen were welcomed to the Company in a toast proposed by Liveryman Mary Heber, and the Company toast was given by Freeman David Jones.
