They were: Robert Munson of R Dunn & Sons; Vic Patel of Allneeds Group; Stephen Dunkley of Aliaxis UK; Charles Ledigo of Reisser; Jennie Ward of Builders’ Merchants News; and Tony Smith of Courtney Smith Group.

The Master Leo Martin also welcomed Honorary Dame Fiona Woolf, DBE as an Honorary Liveryman. He said: “Our membership is growing rapidly and it’s the highest it’s ever been at 214 Liverymen and 27 Freemen. WCoBM represents all parts of the industry and members include leading figures in merchants, manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, buying groups, service suppliers and ancillary trades.

“Membership is by invite only and I hope all our new Liverymen take full advantage of the key networking events organised throughout the year, and actively support our Livery’s objectives.”
