Our Director, Tony Grimshaw OBE recently accepted the Freedom of the City of London. Tony was extremely proud as a Lancastrian to attend the ceremony of declaration at Guildhall, London.
He was escorted by the Beadle (wearing a top hat and frock coat) and the ceremony was performed by the Deputy Clerk on behalf of the Chamberlain.
It is one of the oldest surviving traditional ceremonies still in existence today and is believed to have been first presented in 1237.
Tony was joined be his wife Helen, three daughters; Susan, Alison and Sarah, and London based granddaughter Beth.
