Calling time at the Star and Garter

Robert Smith, our Chairman, represented the Society at a ceremony on 6 April 2017 to mark the restoration of Richmond’s Grade II listed Star and Garter Home, which is now being converted into private apartments. A time capsule was buried in the ground to commemorate the building’s history; this included a copy of the Society’s newsletter and a flyer listing our publications and our talks programme.

Simon Fowler, our Vice-Chair, who was its first archivist, gave a well received presentation about its history in February 2017 at the former Home.
