After waiting what seems to have been an eternity, we have at last started work on building a door from the Stationers' Garden into the church of St Martin-within-Ludgate. The building work, and the work on redesigning the garden around the door, will start next week and will be completed by the end of August.

My thanks and huge admiration go to Liveryman Gerald Hill, who, with his wife, Marian, sponsored a trip to the pantomime for children from Somers Town Community Centre School (one of the three Stationers' Saturday Schools).
It was a privilege to attend the very moving Service of Thanksgiving and Celebration for the life of Past Master Jonathan Straker at St Bride's Church on Wednesday morning.
