Sadly, The Lord Mayor’s show was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. However, instead, The Worshipful Company of Wheelwrights were joined in a webinar by the Lord Mayor William Russell who came straight from his swearing in at the Law Courts to be with us. We were also joined by The Worshipful Companies of coachmakers, Patten Makers and Tinplate workers alias wire workers.
Our joint apprentice (with the Worshipful Company of Coachmakers), Tom Carroll, was interviewed and displayed his final apprentice piece, a timber nib. The Lord Mayor spoke to us all and answered some questions. After the joint webinar we split into our own Company groups where the Wheelwrights enjoyed conversation and champagne very kindly provided by our Master Sir Stephen Dalton
