Yesterday I accompanied the Master to the annual Dedication Service of the Imperial Society of Knights Bachelor at St Paul's Cathedral and jolly good fun it was! The Bishop of London preached a moving and inspiring (as always) sermon on the subject of romantic love.
I was very pleased to bump into Sir Jeremy Elwes. He has just been elected Treasurer of the Imperial Society and I would like to congratulate him, on behalf of all Stationers, for this great honour. We are all very proud to have a Liveryman in a position of such distinction.
The Master and I also bumped into Liveryman Michael Wren, who was in his second day as Master of the Bowyer's Company. So again, on all our behalves, I congratulate Michael on rising to greatness and wish him every happiness in his year as Master.
