Exam Winners visit Lloyds with the Insurance Institute

by Emma Jones

Following on from Joy and Lorraine’s exam success last year, the Belfast Insurance Institute kindly invited them as prize winners on a trip to London.

The ladies started their trip with a visit of the CII building in Aldermanbury where they toured the building noting the architecture, and also the display of fire marks the building has, the majority of which are donated by collectors.

On their travels, they passed the London Stock Exchange, the home of the Lord Mayor and the Bank of England.

They arrived at Lloyds where they had a tour of the Old Library and the Trading Floor where they saw the display of Nelson’s artefacts, the bell that is rung when a ship sank and the book that is still used to note when a ship sinks to this day.

The ladies then paid a visit to our friends in Contessa, before a quick shop in Harrods…it’s a hard life!
