The Beadle


The Beadle of the Worshipful Company of Insurers greeting and welcoming members into a function at the Guildhall Art Gallery.  So just what is a Beadle?  The role includes taking care of meeting places as well as organising meetings,  ceremonial and social functions.  Enforcing discipline decided by the court.  It can be summed up as policeman, almoner, friend, social worker and communicator.

A Beadle always reminds me of reading Dickens.
