THE VCH AT WORK AGAIN IN WESTMINSTER
Get involved in new VCH research in Westminster where work is restarting thanks to the support of Councillor Judith Warner, who was Lord Mayor of Westminster from May 2010 to 2011. During her mayoral year, the Lord Mayor supported the County History Trust, which holds VCH London & Middlesex funds, as one of her three mayoral year charities. Everything raised during that year is being used to fund research for our second Westminster volume, VCH Middlesex 14 – The City of Westminster: Local Government and Social Life – and contribute to the third and last volume of the set, on the physical growth and economy of the City.
Volume 14 will focus on the complexities of Westminster’s local government, a theme never comprehensively investigated, and on the social life of the local community. Work is well underway with VCH Research Officers, Dr Mark Latham and Dr Francis Boorman, and volunteers, Jonathan Comber, Helen Glass and Ros Hampton. We would like to involve other experienced historians as volunteer researchers. There are many aspects that may interest you - from the history of individual theatres, schools and municipal buildings to the provision of vital public services, and the development of charities. See our research plan on the About page and how to participate in research or fundraising by clicking on Support.
