A message from our President, Alderman – Sir Charles Bowman – Lord Mayor 2017/2018
Many congratulations to the Ward Club on achieving its 75th anniversary. For my full message and that of the Lord Mayor,, the Vice President and our Deputies, please click here.
The City of London is divided into 25 wards, each with an elected Alderman and, on average, four elected Common Councilmen. Our Ward Club represents both Lime Street and Cornhill Wards
The Ward Club is also a most enjoyable social club that holds many events – outings, dinners and activities that are not normally available to the general public and is a great supporter of the City Civic – the Corporation, the Mayoralty, the Livery Companies and all that goes with it – the Lord Mayor’s Show, the Red Cross Market at Guildhall, amongst others.
I hope that you will find this website useful and that you will enjoy finding out more about the City of London, Wards in the City of London, Ward Clubs, especially Lime Street and Cornhill Wards, and the functioning of our great City.
As the world’s prime international financial centre there is much to be proud of and uphold. We firmly believe in supporting the City of London, in both its civic and social roles, and some highly deserving charities, which are described on this site.
