January Court Dinner

Fletchers and their guests mustered for the January Court Dinner at Farmers’ and Fletchers’ Hall on 15th January.

There were 15 Livery companies in attendance, including 8 visiting Masters, 3 Past Masters, and a former Prime Warden. 

The menu of seared tuna, sirloin of beef and lemon and lime posset was exceptionally well presented and very appetizing too. Musical entertainment during the reception and after dinner was provided by the Tooting Broads, a duo of flautists; our own liveryman, Jane Gilbert, and her friend Cressida Godfrey.  Appropriately they included a piece by Arthur Sullivan.

Our Master, Dr Roger Watson, explained how New College, Oxford, had made provision to replace the massive oak beams supporting the roof of their hall, which were eventually attacked by death-watch beetle, by planting oak saplings 500 years before they were needed.

Judging by the noise level, a good time was had by all.
