Inter-company pancaking, Andy wins again

2019 bought us the human wind turbine and 2022, the fully functional water butt.  Expanding on our ESG theme, RG Jones Director, Andrew Williamson this year created a St. Paul’s costume based on the Lord Mayors Charity Appeal “A better City for All”.

It’s not every week we see Andy dressed as a building, tossing pancakes at the Guildhall for the Lord Mayors Charity, running on behalf his Livery Company, The Worshipful Company of Water Conservators.

We were once again treated to a whole range of spectacular couture from pineapples to Mad Hatters, and despite the horror when we spotted another St Paul’s making his way through the crowds, Andy was delighted to be awarded first prize for the second year running.

The Lords Mayor Inter-Livery Pancake event employs the skills of a variety of liveries: Clockmakers time it, Gunmakers fire the starting pistol, Glovers provide the white gloves worn by racers, Fruiterers provide lemons, Cutlers provide the forks and RG Jones provide the technical support.

Andrew bought his A-game to the Guildhall Yard, making a bold statement in a mid-thigh dress made up of four LED lit columns.  Each pillar representing a city that is Inclusive, Healthy, Skilled and Fair.  This was paired with a dapper, avant-garde hat representing the Dome of St. Pauls (complete with birds).

Andrew is a member of The Worshipful Company of Water Conservators, one of the 31 modern Livery Companies formed in the City of London over the last 80 years. The Company promotes awareness of the science, art and practice of water and environmental management and hopes to play an informative role. to the Government, the City and the public about the many and important ways that water affects our lives.
