|Past Master Venetia Howes at the Guildhall with the Marketor's royal charter handed over to the Company at a memorable dinner.|
When I started this blog I thought that I was establishing a first but it turned out that the Master Marketor was six months ahead of me. Like many I have followed her blog with interest. This most particularly so because it could be thought that all masters' blogs would be alike as two peas. In fact I think we have provided comment, even when posting about the same events, that brings out the very different personalities of both the master and the company he or she leads for the year.
Venetia has clearly had a good year, the highlight of which was undoubtedly the Royal Charter ceremony presided over by HRH Duke of Edinburgh at the Guildhall on 19 October (see my post of 24 October). As she says she now looks forward to achieving the 'honourable estate' of past master.
I am pleased that Master Jim Surguy, the new Master Marketor, will be continuing the blog.
