premises. These are shared with the Little Ship Club and are situated near Southwark Bridge. With a splendid view on and across the Thames these offer members access to a range of facilities, including a dining room, club room, library and bar. The spacious dining room shares the river view, it also hosts a Club Table where you can meet old and new friends and share good food at reasonable prices or simply have a snack and a drink. Meeting rooms and accommodation are also available, and the Club has reciprocal arrangements in London with the Oxford and Cambridge and Farmers' Clubs, and with other distinguished clubs in the UK and overseas. Of particular note is the exceptionally varied and engaging range of social activities offered by the Club. Each year we hold a Civic lunch with the Lord Mayor and mayoral team as well as other more formal dining at a Christmas lunch and installation of the new President. However, the Club has various interest groups or ‘Sections’


My continuing involvement is in arranging a regular meeting group called City Face2Face. This arranges lunches with speakers from City organisations. During the past 12 months we have met and quizzed the Director of the Built Environment (who is responsible for planning and transportation, highways and pavements and licensing matters), the Commissioner of the City Police (his role speaks for itself) and the City Remembrancer (who has a ceremonial and Parliamentary position).. 2013 will see amongst other guests the Archdeacon of the City of London. Our current President is Judy Tayler- Smith a City resident whose great love and expertise in wine and food will be reflected in her events. The new year calendar include Burns' Night and roast beef of old England, appropriately at Butchers' Hall in March.


The centenary of the founding of the Club is in 2014 and will be a bumper year of celebration. The Club has a significant number of Aldermen and Common Councilmen as Members and the Lord Mayor is always our Patron. Club membership is open to Ward Club members and freemen of the City. Many join with the express intention of learning more about the


City and how it works and to get involved with the Livery Companies.


Further details of the Club and its activities may be viewed by visiting the Club’s website www.cityliveryclub.com which include membership details. The Clerk can be contacted on 020 7248 0620.
