After the ceremonials last night, 7 July,  the celebrations took their usual joyous turn (drinks in the garden) as Helen Esmonde was installed as Master although there was an extra frisson of excitement, obviously, as Helen is the first woman to be Master of the Company after a line of 612 men. We wish her well for her year as Master and commit to supporting her endeavours. It is going to be a year focused on education as that is the Master's especial interest but, as with every year, there will be all sorts of causes to which members can contribute their energy and from what Prof Tim Connell, Chairman of the Livery Committee,  said at Common Hall, all sorts of Livery Committee events to enjoy - something for everyone was the mantra!
