‘York was an obvious choice for my Master’s Weekend, not the least because I am a Trustee of the wonderful National Railway Museum. Another reason is that it has an older Mansion House than the one I lived in for a year as Lord Mayor of London! York is, of course, packed with historical sights, all within walking distance or a very short taxi ride from the Grand Hotel where we will stay - the former headquarters of North Eastern Railways, lavishly restored into a five-star hotel. I am not forgetting the breath-taking York Minster and so many other lovely things to do – there will be time for all that! You can take much of it at your own pace!’ Dame Fiona

Three Past Master Plumbers (Nick Gale, Steve Hodkinson and Erica Stary) and their partners attended the Brigantes Christmas carol concert (and the AGM beforehand) in Chester. The cathedral choir was superb. Brigantes (northern outpost of the livery) was the creation of PM Nick Gale and three others from the North and has in a very short period become a resounding success. Nick gave a most amusing speech at the pre-concert dinner in the Cathedral precincts.
Northern Liverymen should keep a look out on this web site for future meetings of the Brigantes.
