12th March Security Professionals speed to their Charter
The Security Professionals, one of the newest Livery Companies, were presented with their Charter by the Lord Mayor at Mansion House last Friday. They have gone from being a Guild to their Royal Charter in ten and a half years - a record. They were supported at their reception by 50 other Livery Masters, all of whose Companies were named by the Master, Stephen Parsons, in his speech of thanks to the Lord Mayor.
One of their most interesting charitable awards is the Sheriffs' Award, for outstanding courage or innovative thinking in protecting people, property or liberty. (It struck a bell because Shell once hosted the award ceremony.) Liveryman Trevor Vaughan chairs the committee that chooses the winners - he is always pleased to receive nominations and I have his contact details.
