The inaugural Freshers’ Fayre was held at the Hall on 27th March 2013. All new members who joined in 2012 and January 2013 were invited to spend a convivial evening meeting each other and the Chairmen and members of the Panels and Committees to find out more about our current activities and charitable operations. WCIT is one of the most active Livery Companies in the City in its Social, Industry, Education and Charitable operations.
The highlight of the evening was the grand entry of the Cito team dressed up in their regalia and tricorn hats. Cito is the name of the Company’s Thames Cutter which participated in the Lord Mayor’s Show river flotilla on the 10th November last year. The photo shows the Cito team presenting the Cito painting to the Hall, left to right: Guy Leppard, Cito team member; Michael Webster, Senior Warden receiving the Cito paintaing; John Gavin, our Barge Master; and Mike Lyons, Cito team member. You can also see a video of the presentation here.
We will be holding a further Freshers Fayre later in the year for our new members, so please look out for your invitations and come and join us for a fun evening.
