WCEC hosts its first live event since pandemic's start
The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners’ first Court Luncheon of the year was held in the City of London at at Glaziers Hall on 2nd July – the WCEC’s first live event since the start of the pandemic in February 2020.
There might have been far fewer attendees, but every one of them was delighted to be able to convene in person, as the WCEC took its first cautious step in returning to a situation resembling normal.
Guests were required to wear masks however, and there were no more than six people at a table - 62 guests in total.
"While we were limited to fewer guests than normal, we were able to have a strong enough gathering, observing all Covid-secure rules,” explains. John Shonfeld, Master of the WCEC. “It was very refreshing for us to be together once again, even though technology has allowed us to keep in touch over the most challenging periods of the pandemic. I cannot thank the organisers enough for their efforts to make our Court Luncheon a reality."
The next scheduled WCEC event will be the official installation ceremony of the incoming Master, Gary Fage, on 17th September, 2021.
