A selection of quotes from Scholars, Apprentices, Freemen and Liverymen.
I must thank the livery for their support; they have had a great influence on me. I would definitely not be here without their help. As an Arkwright scholar, who joined as an apprentice at sixteen, the livery opened my eyes to what was possible and what kind of work its members did. I remember coming away from events and dinners, fizzing with excitement about having met the guardian of the kilogram, or the designer of large telescope electronics, or a researcher who works at a particle accelerator. I would have never thought those jobs existed before! It is this atmosphere that has made the livery such an important place for young scientists and engineers. I hope to contribute and give others the same opportunity I have had.
