Shrieval Chain and Badge of Office

Shrieval Chain and Badge of Office

Plaisterers’ Hall was very pleased to welcome over 200 guests to the Great Hall to celebrate Alderman and Sheriff elect Alison Gowman receiving her Shrieval Chain and Badge of Office.

The Chain has been designed by her representing the many areas of her life and work. This includes the Plaisterers’ Shield alongside the other Livery Companies that she belongs to. She was accompanied by her consort, Glen Hurstfield, who was also presented with his badge. Sir David Wootton spoke warmly about Alison and presented her with her Chain of Office.

Alison becomes Sheriff on 28th September at a ceremony that the Master will attend. The Company wish Alison well for her year and will be alongside her to support where we can.
