AGM Septmber 2018

At our AGM we were honoured by the presence of Loyd Grossman, who gave an impassioned speech about the value of Mayfair and St James’s to London and our country. In a speech that was both humorous and relaxed, he told tales of his experiences in London’s finest areas and took questions from members. The Ritz Casino provided a wonderful lunch in their most beautiful surroundings and we felt truly blessed to be there again. Chairman Sara Drake spoke of the way the Association is moving forward at pace and voted thanks to Penny Kennedy-Scott, the Ritz Club and Loyd Grossman.
