The Battersea Society: Welcome to the Battersea Society website


The Battersea Society Wins the WALTER BOR MEDIA AWARDS 2007 for joint collaboration to save Wandsworth Museum.

David Lewis and Shirley Passmore receiving awardThe award is presented by the London Forum of Amenity and Civic Societies and
pictured right is David Lewis receiving the award on behalf of the Society. He is accompanied by Shirley Passmore the Chair of the Wandsworth Museum Campaign Group and a member of the Wandsworth Society.

The Wandsworth Campaign Group is comprised of members from the Wandsworth Historical Society, Wandsworth Society, the Putney Society, the Balham Society and the Battersea Society.

The sterling efforts of the Campaign Group have received plaudits from all over London. Despite this we believe that the future of the Museum is far from safe and it requires as many as possible to subscribe to becoming a Friend of the Museum – see the article by Dorian Gerhold, a trustee of the new Museum Company and chairman of the Wandsworth Historical Society, in the Society’s December Newsletter.
