The Presentation of Addresses:
Immediately after the Silent Ceremony at Guildhall, where the new Lord Mayor officially takes up the post, there is a ceremony called The Presentation of Addresses, where the Lord Mayor and indeed the Sheriffs are presented with gifts and messages of goodwill from friends and colleagues in the Livery, Ward Clubs and associated organistions.
This took place on Friday 11th November 2016 and I was delighted to be presented with gifts from (shown in order left to right below):
The Worshipful Company of International Bankers
Coleman Street Ward Club
King Edward's School, Witley
The Guild of Freemen
Here are a few photos from the reception that followed:
