St David's Church, Llanthony, Monmouthshire 14 October 2015
Fellowship of the Chartered Insurance Institute (FCII) is the highest qualification for the institute. Not sure where the Worshipful Company of Weavers fits in with this.

This was originally a hermit's cell said to have been established in the 6th Century by St David, and one of the most sacred sites in Wales. A monastic settlement grew up around it, and in the early 12th Century, a priory was built there as a cell, but within ten years a full Augustinian priory had been established. The current church is believed to have been the infirmary of the priory. As with many of these early churches, a great deal of restoration was carried out in the 19th Century.
