Visit to Newcastle Coopers, 2016

Deacon Jim Mearns had the pleasure of attending a meeting of the Stewards and Freemen of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne on Monday 18 January 2016. Welcomed to the city Guildhall by David Hughes Senior Steward and Dr Peter Blenkinsop Junior Steward  of the Coopers Company of the Freeman of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne, the Deacon and Master Vivian Bairstow of the Worshipful Company of Coopers of London witnessed  the first stage in admitting new members to the crafts in the presence of the Lord Mayor. The Senior Steward then provided the Deacon and Master with an excellent tour of central Newcastle. This first historic visit of the crafts will hopefully lead to further links between our own and other cooper organisations across the country.
