This gathering of research material was intended to supplement my participation as a member of the Trustees of the Museum of Garden History ,brief though it was. After a short and concealed power battle a new curator was appointed and decision making was switched to a new committee, leaving the old one marooned in a limbo. As far as I know I am still a member of the original advisory group but have had no contact with developments thereafter . It is now called Garden Museum and can be found in Lambeth Palace Road. I was much amusedd by a Hermit who lived in the Church Tower and made free with emails to Members (many years ago mind you). There was an excellent lunching facility much enjoyed by local workers.
O what tales are in my diary! I was not made to sit easily in a power structure. Still, I grew to love the area and the walk along the Riverfront from Vauxhall was a treasured memory. There I met Kirsty Carter for tea and a gossip. The best memory.
The Museum Volunteers were dedicated and highly knowlegeable, draawing from a pool of distinguished local residents.
