As 2015 draws to a close, our thoughts turn to merriment and celebration, we wanted to share one last snippet of news. Richard has been made a Freeman of The Furniture Makers' Company.

Our hosts for the evening was The Geffrye Museum. The setting could not have been more perfect. If you have not visited the Museum, I highly recommend a visit.

The short service was followed by a formal ceremony which ended with a short photo session to commemorate the occasion. All in all a splendid event, made all the more special, as I watched my friend being rewarded for his efforts.

A little thought from Mr M. Twain.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

What a magnificent thought - Explore. Dream. Discover. All that is left to do is wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2016.
