In wishing all members of the Society and visitors to this site the compliments of the Festive Season, I would like to thank you for supporting the work we have been doing to celebrate and debate this wonderfully complex and endlessly fascinating city.
Over the year we have organised a busy programme of events which have been well attended and covered a wide range of topics; the membership has grown steadily and I am pleased to say that we have attracted a substantial number of younger members, which bodes well for the future. We have published a very attractive Journal and organised a number of events with the All Party Parliamentary Group on London’s Planning and Built Environment.
In the New Year we will be engaging with the Mayor’s consultation on the new London Plan, organising visits – including a series to some of London’s Great Estates, ancient and modern – as well as walks and talks.
We are keen to further increase the number of members – so, if you haven’t joined up yet, please do so for 2017; if you have friends who you think would like to join, please pass on information about the London Society, or consider giving a Gift Membership.
We also have a Corporate Membership class, so if you work for, run or have contacts with a company you think might like to support the work we do please pass on the details or let Director Don Brown know.
Wishing you all the best for 2017 and I look forward to seeing you at lots of events during the year.
Peter Murray, Chair, The London Society
