Consuls et Connétables
au Royaume Uni
Two regions in the UK have Consul-Générals: Ecosse (Scotland) and Pays de Galles (Wales).
Other regions have Connétables (or, in English, 'Constable'). In former times in France, a Connétable was more likely the equivalent of a Lord Lieutenant.
We hope to attract a caveaux in Northern Ireland, at which point a Consul-Général would be appointed to coordinate the sabrage activities there. The UK Ambassador, Gerard O'Shea, also takes responsibility for Caveaux relations in the Republic of Ireland.
Connétables are appointed in particular regions (based on County boundaries) for the Confrérie and on behalf of the UK Ambassador. They help maintain contact with Caveaux de Sabrage and encourage membership and help with events. Some Connétables are also attached to an establishment as Maîtres de Caveau.
In Scotland, (as well as a Consul-Général) there is also a Connétable for the Highlands and Islands who supports Caveaux such as The Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Fonab Castle Hotel.
