Old Bailey – 20.02.17

Courtesy of an invitation from Alderman and Sheriff Peter Estlin, I was privileged to attend the Old Bailey today for lunch with the judges. On show across the courts are examples of the terrible impact of human error and human evil with lives lost and families devastated. Very sobering.


Livery out and about – 15.02.2017

 Caroline and I had a lovely dinner tonight in Camps Bay, Cape Town with past master Laurence Johnstone and his wife Clare. We managed to cover several matters livery during the evening as well as sharing our South African adventures to date. Earlier in the day I had a  surprise encounter with Liveryman Jonathan  Wallach on Table Mountain!


School visit to the Old Bailey – 31.01.2017




We arranged a tour of the Old Bailey this evening for students at our adopted schools Archbishop Tenison, Robert Clack and St Saviour’s and St Olave. Many thanks to the Secondary of the City of London, Charles Henty, for acting as our guide. We were treated to a talk by a judge in the historic Number 1 Court  and a trip to the cells. A very successful evening with hopefully some young people more informed about our legal system and with some career inspiration as  well.
