In June and July 2020 the Lord Mayor undertook a series of eleven video calls – or virtual coffee mornings and afternoons – with the Masters and Clerks of selected groups of Livery companies.
The discussions were an opportunity to discuss the impact of COVID19 on the operations and focus of the Livery, as well as other issues, including diversity and inclusion.
All livery companies were invited to participate. Over the course of the eleven meetings all but two of the Livery companies joined one of the online sessions, along with those guilds and companies without livery, the Guilds of Freemen and Young Freemen, and the City Livery Club.
A summary of the key themes raised in these meetings can be found within the Lord Mayor’s section of this site.
