York Cordwainers Charter

Deacon Convenor Murray attended the York Cordwainers Charter over the weekend 14th and 25th May. Iain said, the weekend kicked off with the London Livery arranging a most excellent dinner. It was a great chance to meet the hosts and other guests. There wasn’t a big showing from Scotland and there seamed to be some hesitancy with Covid. We then had a tour of York Minster. It was a behind the scenes view. Then retiring for lunch and some well needed free time. The main dinner was held in the The Merchant Adventurers Hall. A most splendid 13 century hall. The dinner was wonderful and we were entertained by a host of speakers.

Sunday saw a procession of Masters’, Clerks’ and other Robed Officials to All Saints Church, we set off from Bedern Hall and proceeded to the Church. We went through the famous Shambles to the bemusement of the passers-by. The whole event was concluded with lunch at The impressive Bedern Hall.
