Following the wonderful Supporters’ Reception at Glaziers Hall on the 30 November, and following numerous requests, I wanted to share a copy of my speech, not only for those that were there to reflect upon, but for the many Supporters that sent their best wishes as unfortunately they were unable to join us on the evening.

All change in the City of London!

Ordinarily, the 25 Wards in The City elect an Alderman every six years. Usually, those elections are not all held at the same time - there’s balance. In addition, every four years, 100 Common Councillors are elected with varying numbers per Ward between two and five. Covid has meant that the last round of elections did not take place. So next year, several different things collide to create a series of changes simultaneously.

Inter-Livery Skiing Championship 2022 CANCELLED

The organisers of the Inter-Livery Skiing Championship 2022 have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel this month’s event in Morzine.Dear Team Captains,First of all, thank you once again for your patience and understanding.I am EXTREMELY sorry to have to tell you that I have had to admit defeat: ILSC 2022 is officially cancelled.I have reached this decision for a number of reasons:Please do stay in this group for next year (unless you are fully retiring, in which case do please let me know and if possible introduce a replacement TC for your Company).Refunds: As each TC is aware of the funds they paid to the Ironmongers, please would you contact me by personal message with the account details to which refund(s) should be made. I will then pass this on to our accounts department.I would like to thank our sponsors Punter Southall Wealth (formerly Psigma) for sticking with us. They had very kindly agreed to continue to support us, even though the functions looked like being far more limited, and they had even bought new race bibs and banners with their corporate logo on. I hope that they will still be with us along with all of you next year.Finally, I have a further message about Snow-Camp, but I am going to make that into a separate message tomorrow.I am so sorry to ruin your weekend with this sad news but feel it is best to let you know as soon as possible.Let’s hope that 2023 gives us better luck!Best wishes, on behalf of the Ironmongers Christopher & Suki
