Members will be interested to know that Sara Pink (who impressed her membership interview panel with her 'extreme sports interests') has agreed to jump 300 feet off of the Lloyd's building in London! This is in support of the Lord Mayor's charities and the main beneficiaries are Mencap and SCOPE. All funds will go directly to the charities and the big jump will commence on 4 September 2015.
The July "Shout" was taken at the Committee meeting for the Lord Mayor's Show 2015 Float held in the Clerk's office at Stationers' Hall.

The building team at Stationers’ is hard at work today as they are revamping the exterior of the hall. Work will be done to improve plumbing and stop further wet patches coming through the front walls. This has been an ongoing problem for quite some time and we are looking forward to seeing the finished results soon. Other refurbishments include repairs to the stone work, improvements
to the hall lighting and shiny new door knobs!
Last night saw the last big Company event at the Hall before the close-down for summer works. The Court met at 4.00 pm and at 6.00 pm four new Liverymen were cloathed. They were, from left to right in the image Mahmoud Warriah, CEO of Linden Business Development, Paul and Serena Musgrove both of Corporate Member, Nectere, and Lord Black of Brentwood, Executive Director at the Telegraph Media Group. There are several married couples in the membership but this is the first time we can recall a married couple being cloathed at the same time and certainly it was the first (of many we hope) occurrence of our female Master cloathing a female "brother". Congratulations to them all.
