Square Events - Lord Mayor of the City of London

“We in the City of London Corporation are delighted to host the 2015 Square Mile Salute in London’s historic Guildhall.

For over 600 years, this building has been at the heart of the City and Livery’s support for the Armed Forces, and earlier this year it played host to nearly 1000 service personnel and their families, to mark the end of combat operations in Afghanistan. While commemorating what has taken place, and commiserating with those who have suffered loss, we in the City recognize the immense contribution that continues to be made in so many theatres of war and humanitarian crises.

Long may the Square Mile Salute raise awareness and support for the Armed Forces community, and I hope the 2015 City Giving Day will also showcase Livery Company links with units and cadets, and the important bond between businesses and reservists.”
