Livery Dinner for the Worshipful Company of Turners at Skinner’s Hall
Monday 19th December.

I was the guest of David Batchelor the Renter Warden of the company; he was the main organiser for the Wizardry in Wood Exhibition in October and the chair (until very recently) of the Howe committee on which I sit.

David is holding the Renter Warden’s ceremonial drinking cup.

Before the dinner we had a carpet Guard of Honour swords and all and a trumpeter!


The Skinners Hall is an impressive place and was rebuilt after the great fire around 1670 although it has been remodelled since.

Parts of the cellar pre-date the fire.

A very good evening, living in London made it very easy journey for me. As is always the case on these occasions it was a time to discuss various woody issues and forthcoming events.

Thank you Renter Warden!
