To communicate on behalf of our Company with Liverymen with Freemen and with their wives, husbands, partners and their families and also with Companions of the Company when sickness, operations or other needs may occur is indeed a very great privilege.

This is my fifth year as Almoner and I have relied heavily upon advice, guidance and assistance which has been given freely and willingly by our Learned Clerk, Nigel, and by Past Master Ernie Pilgrim as Almoner for many years to Plaisterers` Lodge.

I have had very considerable contact with many of our Liverymen and Freemen and with members of their families with regular Reports being sent to our Learned Clerk and to our Master; our Court of Assistance and to the Membership Committee.

I am delighted that our Court has approved the appointment of Richard Grove as Deputy Almoner for this year. Richard will serve on the Membership Committee and for the benefit of all Members of our Company. I look forward very much to working with Richard.

I ask all Liverymen and Freemen to please communicate with me direct or through our Learned Clerk when you may be aware that assistance by our Company may be required for any one of our Members or by a member of their family.
