It was lovely to gather together for the 2023 LMA Dinner – connecting with old friends and making new ones. Current Mayors and Consorts along with Members and guests enjoyed a wonderful sparkling reception and then were treated to a three course dinner served with excellent wines.
Sadly the President, the Lord Mayor of Westminster, could not be with us but his Deputy, along with Chairman Steve Summers, proposed the toasts and spoke beautifully highlighting the importance of the LMA to our Mayors. More particularly, the chairman focused on the vital part that the civic mayoralty plays in public life, especially in recent times. The Loyal Toast took on a special significance as it marked the beginning of Charles III’s reign. Many thanks to the whole organising committee for a wonderful evening.
