  1. Who do I contact to book a place at an event. I am an ex apprentice and current Freeman of the City of Coventry. I cannot see anywhere to book a place.

    • Dear Simon, I have just sent you an email letting you know about our Guild meetings, events and how to gain access to our social calendar. I will look forward to your reply. Best wishes, Steven Morson (Senior Warden and Chamberlain)

    • All Guild members will have received the latest “Guildsman” magazine. Inside each magazine there is a page called “Dates for your Diary”. This page shows you the list of future events, with the date and venue. Next to each event is a two letter code for the Guild Officer who is organising that event. Below this table of events is a guide to which Guild Officer is being referred to by the code (i.e. their initials). For example if I am organising an event my initials are SM. You can then go to the page called “Addresses to Note” (towards the back of The Guildsman magazine) where you will find the address and telephone number for that Guild Officer.
