This section links to the latest Company news. It provides early warning of forthcoming events, where there’s more in the members’ calendar, but email remains the main means of communicating with members. For 'stop press' simply see the 'Latest News' section below.

Latest News

Our next event is the 2018 Gloucestershire Lecture on Wednesday 18 April at Calcot Manor with Sir Richard Dearlove, Head of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) 1999-2004, and Master of Pembroke College 2004-15. Members have been provided with details by email, together with reminders about the St George's Day service in Gloucester Cathedral on Monday 23 April and, less welcome perhaps, about annual subscriptions (due 1 April). For a relaxing read, click below for our latest Newsletter, Spring 2018; for a more taxing read, click on 'Constitution of Company and Trust', where the recently approved Company Byelaws now reside. In the members' area a report of the Trustees' meeting on 26 March is also available. Finally, there's a new addition to the list of Company officers: Company Almoner, The Venerable Ron Hesketh, our latest honorary member.
