At my first lunch at Innholders’ Livery Hall in April 2000, I never believed I would have the honour and privilege of being your Anniversary Master in 2018. This is all thanks to our late Past Master Frank Saunders and Past Master James Simmons who proposed and seconded me to join this marvellous Livery Company.
With my Mistress Amanda (my first Mistress and I do like saying that) we have and hope to attend as many events as possible, and support my chosen Charity “Headway Essex”. The Headway Centre in Colchester provides the rehabilitation care for survivors of brain injuries. Some of the most common experiences which follow brain injury are lack of sight, personality changes, inappropriate behaviour, lack of initiative, and other major traumas.
