RG Jones Director Andrew Willliamson becomes a Freeman of the City of London
In a traditional ceremony dating back to 1237 , RG Jones Director Andrew Williamson made his declaration at his Freedom Ceremony at the Chamberlain’s Court at Guildhall last week. Looking on was his father, Michael Williamson, the current master of the Worshipful Company of Water Conservators, which Andrew now joins.
From the Middle Ages to the Victorian era, the Freedom was the right to trade, enabling members of a Guild or Livery to conduct their business or craft in the Square Mile. It’s a slightly different trading landscape these days but following an ancient right given to Freemen of the City, Andrew will be seen herding his sheep across London Bridge later this year! On a more serious note, his involvement with this Livery will enable him to be at the forefront of environmental issues and solutions, promoting the development of the science, art and practice of water conservation and how he can apply these solutions to his own company.
We are all very proud of Andrew. He is committed to doing the right thing, even when no one is looking! It's right and fitting that he should be acknowledged for his hard work and achievements. RG Jones is a part of British heritage and Andrew is the Grantee for the Royal Warrant and now the Freeman of the City of London. As one of the Directors, it gives clients reassurance that the company is working for, and adhering to, the highest codes of conduct.
