New Master Cutler for Sheffield

Sheffield's latest Master Cutler is due to be officially installed at a ceremony later this morning.

Ken Cooke
Company of Cutlers

Ken Cooke, a former steel business owner and an ex-Sheffield Wednesday board member, succeeds former master cutler Richard Edwards.

As part of the role, Mr Cooke is expected to raise funds for charity and act as an ambassador for business in Sheffield and the City Region.

The city's first Master Cutler, Robert Sorby, was appointed almost 400 years ago.

Today's ceremony is expected to take place at Sheffield's Cutlers Hall at about 10:30 followed by a service at the cathedral.
