The Lady Mayoress, Liveryman Lady Juliet Mountevans, presented trophies to winners of the 2016 Summer Flowers in the City Competition at a special ceremony in October at the Mansion House.
The Master thanked her and the Lord Mayor for the support they give to the Campaign and said: “It is more important than ever that people who live and work in a pressured and often stressful space are able to experience the calming and uplifting presence of flowers and greenery.
“Visitors to the City must be charmed and delighted by the care and importance that we attach to the decoration of its streets, building and offices and I feel sure that we will need to redouble our efforts in the rather uncertain years to come as we strive to keep London at the forefront of the international stage “.
