We were delighted to return to The Corinthia for the 120th occasion of our Annual Dinner after having had to cancel last year’s dinner. Current Mayors and Consorts along with Members and guests enjoyed a wonderful sparkling reception before being called to dinner in the magnificent ballroom. A delicious banquet-style three course dinner served with excellent wines and followed by port and brandy with petit fours was enjoyed by around 149 guests.
Our Chairman Steve Summers and the President the Lord Mayor of Westminster proposed the toasts and spoke eloquently highlighting the importance of the LMA to our Mayors and of the civic mayoralty especially in recent times. The Loyal Toast took on a special significance as we all raised our glasses on the eve of the Accession of HM The Queen and the start of the 70th Year of her reign.
