Congratulations to our very own Optometrist Lavinia, who became admitted to the Freedom of the City of London.
Becoming a Freeman of the City of London doesn't entitle you and your sheep to stop traffic on London Bridge. It does mean that you are recognised as a citizen and, in being presented by a Livery Company, you show your commitment to supporting a craft which is both ancient and modern.
Optometrist Lavinia De Souza became a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers last autumn and was admitted to the Freedom of the City in her own private ceremony just a couple of weeks ago. "I had a wonderful day with family and friends as I was admitted to the Freedom of the City of London" she said.
