1 October 691st Lord Mayor Elected
Lord Mayor's Ride around the City
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress completed their 'Ride around London' on 17 October 2018 which involved visiting a number of Livery halls and City landmarks on horseback. Spirits were high despite the wet weather conditions as the Lord Mayor was greeted by a welcome party at each stop. Mercers' Hall was the first stop after mounting up in Guildhall Yard, followed by Goldsmiths' Hall and a quick stop at St Paul's Cathedral. Next up was Haberdashers' Hall, Ironmongers' Hall and Chartered Accountants' Hall with about 10 minutes spent at each stop. The final part of the route was Drapers' Hall, Leadenhall Building, Mansion House and then finishing up at Grocers' Hall before returning to Guildhall Yard.
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress were accompanied by the Light Cavalry HAC and mounted City of London police who we thank for their time and support.
The Appeal would like to thank all the Livery companies who took part as well as all the individuals who donated to the Appeal en-route. The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress are still fundraising for the Ride and are close to achieving their target. If you would like to sponsor him then please visit: https://bit.ly/2ErWQm0
