So what's golden, sweet, produced in increasingly smaller quantities in the UK, and is an emotional link to our childhood?

Furry producers decreasing in number, skills dying out.

Rich, golden honey,  dripping off piping hot toast is an image many people have of childhood. Taste honey today and you get the same wonderful experience - for honey is one of those rare foods that has the same clean, unadulterated taste that our ancient ancestors enjoyed.

   So who works to put the honey on your table today? There are between 350 and 400 commercial bee farmers in the UK. Most are members of the Bee Farmers Association.

The Lord Mayor's Show

Lynda Purser,  marching in the Wet Weather Programme..

The Lord Mayor’s Show was the first event following my clothing as a Liveryman on October 17th and I very much wanted to be there. I left home early to find the flat in the Barbican where we were to meet for sustenance and robing before embarking on the walk. It was great- I being in the right place at the right time was given the Immediate Past Master’s robe to wear which was not only warm but also very colourful!

The Energy to Transform Lives

The Lord Mayor's message - continuing with the theme of The City in Society, but reflecting her long association with the City as an energy lawyer, specialising in global electricity industry reforms

I am honoured to be promoting the City of London this year as the 686th Lord Mayor (and only the second woman since 1189). I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received from the Livery and am looking forward to seeing you all in the coming year.
