A Royal Visit to Walsall
Representatives of the leather trade in Walsall were able to have a few moments with HRH Princess Anne earlier this week.
The Perpetual Master of The Saddlers’ Company made the trip to Walsall to congratulate successful apprentices this year and to visit some local saddle makers.
The students had carried out their Worshipful Company of Saddlers apprenticeships through local saddle makers and their achievements were recognised by the audience as they received their certificates.
Group Chairman Ian T. Walker and Director of J&E Sedgwick’s Philip Bevington were able to have a few moments with the Princess to mention our rich heritage and explain how we have been contributing to the equestrian industry since the 1900’s.
