Each year four Liverymen are appointed to hold the office of Steward for the following year. Their function is to be in attendance on the Court when summoned by the Master and look after the Court and in particular any guests of the Company who may be present. One Steward is appointed as the Silver Steward and has additional responsibilities for the Company’s Silver Collection. The appointment of Steward is an honour in itself, a mark of the regard and respect in which the Liveryman is held by the Court. It does not necessarily imply advancement to the Court.

The Stewards elected 2015 and appointed for the 2016 year are:-
Liveryman James Angus Bell
Liveryman Stephen Murray Orledge (Silver Steward)
Liveryman Teresa Jane Blaxland
Liveryman Christopher Leslie Papworth

Antiquarian Horological Society (AHS) Lectures

A formal affiliation was signed in 2014 between the WCC and the AHS. WCC Liverymen and Freemen are encouraged to attend the excellent AHS Lectures, which are free to WCC members and include teas before and wine afterwards, so are very social and interesting events. List of forthcoming lectures in London is on the AHS site.
