Following the opening of the Annual Garden of Remembrance at St Paul's Cathedral, a group of Tylers and Bricklayers gathered at Vintners' Hall for the Annual Civic Luncheon in the presence of the Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor. The guests were welcomed with a glass or two of champagne following which we were called in to the magnificent hall for lunch which comprised Devonshire White Crab as a starter, a main course of Lake District Lamb Rump and all the trimmings with a warm sticky toffee pudding and ice cream for dessert, excellent.

The Chairman, Mrs Christine Broomhead gave the Loyal and Civic Toasts and the Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor responded with a witty and interesting speech. He ended by congratulating the Chairman on her upcoming 50th Wedding Anniversary, giving her and her husband a gift.

This was yet another wonderful occasion enjoyed by all present, including a good number of Tylers and Bricklayers.
