Education, Affiliations and New Liverymen

The Company’s October Court meeting and Luncheon took place at Brewers’ Hall last week was a wonderful celebration of what the Brewers are all about.  Following on from the important business of running the Company, the Court were very pleased to admit two new Liverymen: Richard Shardlow of Tring Brewery and Charlotte Vowles of Everards Brewery and we are looking forward to working with them both in the future.  Our newest Liverymen were invited to join the Court and other guests for lunch to celebrate.

At the lunch, we were also delighted to welcome governors and staff from Dame Alice Owen’s School, one of the schools supported by the Brewers’ Company.  Hannah Nemko, who recently took on the role of Headteacher at the school, spoke to all the guests of the pride the school takes in the academic and extra-curricular excellence that they achieve as a result of the hard work of the students and staff.  She reminded everyone present of the aims and values of the school, represented by “The Owen’s Way”: Opportunity for all; Window on the world; Excellence in everything; Never stop learning; Supportive community; and thanked the Brewers’ Company for their ongoing support.

Also attending the lunch were representatives from the Company’s three military affiliations: HMS ALBION, the Royal Lancers and 9F (Islington) Squadron ATC.  At the end of the lunch, the Master was very pleased to be able to present Brewers’ Company prizes to LET Chloe McIlvaney of HMS ALBION and LCpl Parker of the Royal Lancers, in recognition of their extraordinary contributions to their respective units.

Here at the Brewers’ Company, we are extremely pleased to have opportunities like this to celebrate the brewing industry, education, charitable work and wider connections which are at the heart of our mission.
