BBC Radio Shropshire interviews the new Drapers Master

John Crackett was interviewed by Mark Elliot on Tuesday 9 of March Breakfast on BBC Radio Shropshire and commented on the unusual investiture procedure for the Officers of the Company the previous Friday but pointed out, as a modern Charity responsible for social housing some 50 older people in Almshouses (since1444) and maintaining historic buildings including Drapers Hall (in continuous use since the late 1500s) in the town centre, the organsation had always needed to move with the times. Zoom had been the answer on this occasion-the first time in 559years!
