Congratulations to the seven new freeman who attended their Freedom ceremony today. Welcome to the company: 

Lord Best, the new chairman of the Communications Committee, will be coming to speak to the Young Stationers on Monday, 12 October.

Last week members of The Stationers' Hall team participated in a Medevac training day which was centred around how to manipulate the stair climber and safety procedures that need to be used. They are now fully qualified in enabling disabled access into the hall. Here are some pictures of them enjoying the day!

Court Assistant Martin Woodhead writes: After nearly a year of negotiations, an historic agreement for the Company was signed on 19th August by the Clerk, William Alden, with Adam Matthew Digital for the further digitisation and publication of the Company’s archives. Adam Matthew is a subsidiary company of Corporate Member Sage Publishing.

Members will be happy to know that Liveryman Sara Pink survived her 300 foot abseil drop of the Lloyd's building in support of the Lord Mayor’s Charity.

Her target was to raise £950 however she managed to raise £1,030.00 for Mencap and Scope, the two main beneficiaries of the Lord Mayor’s charities, and this figure is still rising!

Summer works are coming to an end with the installation of new hall lighting being the most recent change. The adjustable dimming lights will set a great atmosphere for any occasion and there will be no more shadows around the hall. 

Members will be delighted to know that The Master’s Ride and BBQ which was held on Sunday 14 June, a report of which was provided by Liveryman Oliver Gadsby, raised £2,500 for the Educational Appeal of the Stationers’ Foundation.

Members will be interested in Liveryman Paddy Belton's latest news story on the BBC website.
