Many LPC members and Fleet Street executives will remember Dr Dennis Griffiths, the former chairman of the club and author, who died just before Christmas. We have organised to have a plaque placed on one of the pews near the altar at St Bride’s Church to remember him and this will be dedicated at a short ceremony starting at 6 pm on Thursday 28 April 2016.

The LPC has reserved the Johnson Room at the Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street from 6.30 following the dedication so that we can celebrate Dennis’s life and great service to the club by raising a glass or two in his memory.

While arranging for the plaque and the celebration at the Cheshire Cheese will be funded by the London Press Club, several members have asked if they can make a financial  contribution to the evening. If anyone would like to send a contribution, please email Richard Dymond ( and he will advise where to send payment. Please make cheques out to the London Press Club and with an indication that it is for the Dennis Griffiths dedication.
