Worshipful Company of Arbitrators receives Royal Charter

Her Majesty the Queen approved the grant of a Royal Charter on 16th March 2011. A splendid birthday present notified to us today which is exactly 30 years since the grant of Livery to the Company on 17th March 1981.

It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you that Her Majesty, via the Privy Council, yesterday approved the grant of a Royal Charter to our Company.  The Senior Warden has received confirmation today and the Master and Wardens wanted this notice to be issued to the Court of Assistants and Livery immediately.

We will now await the scrivening of the Royal Charter on to vellum and application of the Great Seal.  The Master and Wardens will be making arrangements for a Charter Celebration and more details will be announced in due course.
