Mary Berry joins annual London Bridge sheep drive

The annual Sheep Drive is organised by the Worshipful Company of Woolmen and allows freemen of the Square Mile to raise money for good causes.

Mary Berry is a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Bakers and received the freedom of the City in 2014.

At the beginning of the Sheep Drive the Master Woolman received a 'presentment' from the officers of the Guildable Manor of Southwark consisting of an ale-conning vessel and a jar of mint sauce.
