A message from our President, Alderman – Sir Charles Bowman

The City of London is divided into 25 wards, each with an elected Alderman and, on average, four elected Common Councilmen.

I was very honoured to have been elected as Alderman for Lime Street Ward in 2013, following on from Sir John Stuttard and have greatly enjoyed the friendship and support of my Ward Club. With the support of the Livery Committee I stood for Election as Sheriff 2015/2016 was delighted to have been elected. Both my wife (Samantha) and I had a fabulous year. .This was of course surpassed when I was elected Lord Mayor of this Great City in 2017. The Ward Club 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. 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.

I hope that you will find this website useful and that you will enjoy finding out more about Wards in the City of London, Ward Clubs, especially Lime Street and Cornhill Wards, and the functioning of our great City.

The Ward Club is very proud of the City of London and of what it has achieved over centuries.

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.

I hope you will return to the site often to see what it going on that might interest you.

Alderman Sir Charles Bowman
