Cutlers’ Company election meeting and Installation, September, 2020

Because of the Covid-19 crisis, the 2019-2020 Company has decided to re-elect itself.  The Election and Installation took place in the Drawing Room at the Cutlers’ Hall, with a small number of Members being physically present – others attended via Zoom.  This re-election was not a unique occurrence for the Company, as it had happened during the two World Wars.
