AGM and old gems

posted in: Events | 0

We are holding a virtual annual general meeting this year, for obvious reasons. It will take place on Thursday 9 July at 7.30. Members will receive an email with a link and password so you can attend virtually and vote. Hopefully the business will not take too long because afterwards Robert Gurd, our former chairman, will talk about some of the architectural gems we have in Ealing. There is a surprisingly wide variety of Grade I and ll listed structures in all parts of our Borough, from Pitzhanger Manor to the wonderful Voysey house in South Parade and the Goldsmiths almshouses and chapel in Acton. The oldest listed structure is the Iron Age settlement on Horsenden Hill and the newest is the former IBM distribution centre (built in 1975) in Greenford. Bob’s talk will be illustrated by some beautiful pictures such as the one shown here of the Hoover Building entrance on the A40. See you next Thursday!
