Guests will have the chance to meet newly elected chairman Gary Wroe.

The British Jewellers’ Association (BJA) has announced plans to hold its annual general meeting at the Museum of London to coincide with the ‘London’s Lost Jewels’ Cheapside Hoard exhibition.

Members of the BJA and guests will be officially introduced to newly elected chairman and managing director of Hockley Mint, Gary Wroe, as well as managing director of The PMC Studios Ltd, Helen O’Neill, who will act as Wroe’s vice chairman.


BJA marketing manager Lindsey Straughton admitted: “The team is very much looking forward to working with the new officers who will introduce themselves to members on the day. We have seen tremendous membership growth under Gary Williams’s leadership and hope to progress this with vigour under the new team.”

Curator of the Cheapside Hoard, Hazel Forsyth, has been invited to guest speak at the meeting and delegates will have the opportunity to browse the exhibition at a private viewing when the AGM finishes.

Straughton commented: “The exhibition is truly stunning and anyone in the trade who has not already seen it should grab this last opportunity to do so, especially having been guided through the highlights by Hazel; it should be a very insightful and interesting afternoon.”

The BJA AGM will take place on April 24 at The Museum of London. Private viewing of the Cheapside Hoard will start at 4pm with tickets costing £9.
