of Bakers held its second annual ladies’ lunch last week presided over by the Master of the Company John Renshaw (centre). Guests included, from left to right, Jill Renshaw; the Lady Mayoress of the City of the London, Theresa Lewis; Dee Cassey, marketing manager of California Raisins and Sylvia Macdonald of British Baker. The event was held at Bakers Hall in the City close to where the Great Fire of London was started, allegedly at a bakery. The Lady Mayoress spoke of her empathy with bakers as she too runs a business and works with her hands - creating pottery. The fire, however, is confined to her kiln. The Worshipful Company funds bakery education through scholarships and sponsorships.
