Past Masters Mark and Mary Hardy recently visited Liveryman Keith Riddle to present his Honorary Liveryman Emeritus certificate which was awarded by the Court in recognition of his meritorius service to the Company over many years.

Keith was one of the early members of the Company having joined the Guild in the late 1980s, shortly after it was formed. He also served on Court but, more importantly, he has been responsible for dispatching Company merchandise from his home in Northamptonshire for many years.

Having celebrated his 91st birthday last month he has decided to retire – so if anyone is interested in taking this role on, please contact the Clerk!

Keith was delighted with the honour and remains very proud of the Company and its progress since those early days.
