The latest news about and from the Worshipful Company of Butchers

First new members’ evening showcases WCB

Published on: 11 September 2019

The Worshipful Company of Butchers’ first event aimed at prospective new Liverymen took place on Monday 9th September, when those in attendance had the chance to meet the Master and tour Butchers’ Hall.

The initiative was created and planned by the WCB Recruitment Committee to help those interested learn more about the Livery, the membership process, and ask questions. 

What better way to explain the privileges and benefits of joining the Butchers’ Company than over a glass of Champagne in our fantastic new Hall?

After a welcome from the Master and some background to the Company, Liveryman, Claire White enthusiastically shared her experiences since joining 18 months ago.

Inaugural President, Lucinda Baker spoke about the new WCB Young Butchers’ Club and how it can be used to benefit career progression, provide mentoring support and be a route to becoming a full Liveryman.

Two New Members’ Evenings are now planned per annum, with the next event due to take place in March.
