The outgoing Master, Peter Harris, presented the Annual Report to the members attending the AGM and thanked everyone for their support to Lightmongers over the past two COVID impacted years. He gave particular thanks to members who quietly and in the background give generously of their time and skills to support the Company.
In her speech after the Dinner the Master paid tribute to the excellent way in which the Deputy Master, Peter Harris, had represented and promoted the Company during the two challenging years, which have required much innovation due to the impact of COVID restrictions.
Margaret thanked all Members for the trust they have placed in her to be Master Lightmonger for the 2021/22 year and undertook to be energetic in representing and promoting the Lightmongers Company and Members at every opportunity and looked forward to meeting many members during the year.
The installation dinner was attended by 65 members, who all enjoyed a superb meal with plenty of conversation in the wonderful setting of Tallow Chandlers Hall (our home base). Another great evening and if you want to note the date for next year, it will be on Friday 4th November 2022.
