The Master’s Year

As his year as Master comes to a close, Timothy Doyle reflects on his time leading the Worshipful Company:

“My time as Master has certainly been a busy one – I have attended four royal engagements and 120 functions over the course of the year – so it is hard to choose the highlights.

One that does stand out has to be the Master’s weekend in Salcombe, Devon, which I hosted recently. As well as wonderful food, drink and company, we raised £1,600 for the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners Charity Trust and made £2,200 surplus for the company. Thank you to everyone who came along and was so generous.

Raising money for the less fortunate is an important part of our function as a Worshipful Company and I’m delighted that over my year as Master so far, we have raised nearly £56k for charity.

It is also terrific to see that Member interest is high; we had one of our most well attended Court Lunch’s last month and have admitted 18 new members and elected a full Court in the past year.

All of the above could not have been achieved without lots of support from fellow members and I am very grateful for their backing.

I became Master to make a difference… I believe that has been achieved but only others can determine that, and hopefully carry on the growth of the company and its success.”
