Group    From 1960 

Worshipful Company of Launderers

Categories: Liveries & Guilds

Their coat of arms shows two women; one dressed as a Grecian godess, the other in a Victorian style uniform but both engaged in the labour of laundry. In contrast the 'about us' page of their website (2013) show four grinning officers of the Company in their robes - all men. Mmm.

Three years after the first meeting this group was formally constituted in 1960. Yes, 1960 - we didn't get the century wrong - this is a very young guild. Full livery status granted 10 March 1978.
