Annual Summer Ward Drinks at the Leadenhall Building 

9th September 2015

Over 50 guests from City firms within the Ward enjoyed Aon’s generous hospitality at our Annual Summer Ward Drinks event, held in the Leadenhall Building’s newly opened Aon Centre.

Hosted by Dominic Christian, Executive Chairman of Aon Benfield International, electors had an opportunity to mingle with each other, with their elected representatives, and with City Corporation officers, who were on hand to answer questions from electors about local issues.

Sheriff Elect Alderman Charles Bowman spoke about the importance of civic engagement and the role that Aldermen and Councilmen play in promoting the financial City, both abroad and at home.

We are delighted to welcome Aon to Lime Street Ward and look forward to engaging with them – and all our electors – at the regular events we hold.
