Election of Wardens 2018
Following the end of tenure of Alan Dufton and Stuart Magee as Wardens of the Barbers’ and Drapers’ Companies respectively, I am able to confirm the following appointments.
1) Fred Snowden was elected unopposed to the Barbers’ Company.
2) As no candidates presented themselves for election from the Drapers Company,
Kathleen Vasey (a member of the Drapers’ Company), who is currently Warden of the
Butchers’ Company, has moved over to become Warden of the Drapers Company,
thereby leaving a Warden vacancy with the Butchers’ Company.
3) In keeping with the election procedure as set out in Yearbook 2018 and posted on the
Freemen website, that states, “Where no candidates are forthcoming from the Company
with the vacancy, then any Member from any other Company may apply to become the
Warden for that Company”.
John Booth (a Member of the Plumbers Company) was appointed Warden of the
Butchers’ Company unopposed.
Summary of Appointments
Fred Snowden, Warden of the Barbers’ Company
Kathleen Vasey, Warden of the Drapers’ Company
John Booth, Warden of the Butchers’ Company
The first official meeting of the appointees in their posts, will be the Wardens Meeting on Tuesday 1st May 2018
Congratulations to the new Wardens and I look forward to working with them.
May I also take this opportunity to thank both Alan and Stuart for their help and support
as Wardens for their respective Companies, in the development of our organisation during the past three years.
Chairman of the Wardens
