The Election of Sheriffs is a very special event in the civic calendar when Liverymen from all livery companies meet to elect the two Sheriffs for the year. A number of surveyors were present including past master Brian Lambden.
I assembled with Masters from other companies in our gowns and chains and processed into Guildhall ahead of the main Civic party.
The office of Sheriff is the oldest civic office in the City (older even than the office of the Lord Mayor). The two sheriffs elected were :
TIMOTHY RUSSELL HAILES
