WCSIM, UKAS, BSI & NPL about to set off in the Lord Mayor's Show.

Lord Mayors Show

This is the first time WCSIM have had a float in the parade although they have joined the Modern Liveries float in previous years.  We partnered with the UK Accreditation Service, (UKAS), the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the British Standards Institute (bsi.). The emphasis is on science, measurement and standards as well as collaboration. The Lord Mayor, Hon Liveryman Michael Mainelli gave us the biggest wave imaginable as we went past the balcony at Mansion House. More photos of the Silent Ceremony and the Show can be found here.

A big thanks to Sandra Rowse our photographer and London Hire who were so supportive and flexible over the minibus hire. The staff of Glaziers Hall also deserve a special mention for being so accomodating and provding welcome refreshments post Show. Finally, but by no means least, thanks to Freeman Ed Talboys for being an excellent Deputy and the Pagentmasters Office, especially Laura and Dominic Read, for keeping us informed, organised and safe.

  1. The sun was shining and there was not a cloud in the sky for WCSIM’s first float in the Lord Mayor’s Show. I was privileged to be awarded a seat in the Portico at Mansion House, courtesy of our new Honorary Liveryman, the Lord Mayor of London, Michael Mainelli, which gave me the best view in the house of the outward progress of the world’s biggest unrehearsed parade and the Company’s impressive contribution to it! I was able to catch up with our Master, Aubrey Dunford, and the rest of the intrepid team from WCSIM, UKAS, NPL and BSI – TV stars all, after the BBC’s coverage – at the very welcome apres-march reception we held back at the Hall!
