On 16th February the Clerk conducted an online Freedom Oath for our four new Freemen from 282 (East Ham) Sqn Air Cadets; Father Fred Ashford-Okai, Nicholas Amakye, Gareth Costa-Freeman, and Girish Saravanan. Because of our strong connection with 282 it was fantastic to be joined by PM Peter Baker, PM Bill Mahony and Asst James Minett who have all spent time with the Sqn.
After the four had made their oaths, the Master was the first to welcome them as Freemen of the Company. It being Shrove Tuesday, PM Bill Mahony then tried to rope them into next year’s Pancake race. They look fleet of foot, which bodes well.
