Things discussed (1st copy of Minutes of Committee Meetings so far found) included;
Plan to demolish George and Vulture and Simpsons had been withdrawn.
Photo of Club Badge had been approved and submitted to City of London Records.
Finances in good order
Planned social activities for 1971 were announced
New note paper. Various possible drawings were submitted. It was agreed that as the Ward had no City Gate or Church it would be based around a drawing of the fascia of the East India Company House, which had been in Leadenhall Street for many decades – this is still the heading on our note-paper and on the opening page of this Web Site.
The creation of a Social Committee was proposed
A Blow – Letter received from the Mansion House – making it extremely clear that the 1971 Ward Club Lunch would be the last time that the Ward club would be able to use the Mansion house for such an event. “…..given the reduction in Mansion House engagements. “Please make note of this and let me know should you, in future years have some special event that makes it desirable for this decision to be reversed.”
A further Sub-Committee Meeting took place on 15th December re our “Crest” or Badge – see Our Club
