The Clerk has received the following from the Museum of London, and wishes to share it with all members and followers of the Company;
“Dear Mr Tyrrell,
I hope that you, and all at the Worshipful Company of Constructors, remain well during this very strange time. How are things? Are things carrying on virtually at the Livery?
We at the Museum of London are doing our very best over this period to keep our friends and audience stimulated, engaged and inspired. We have some great content online and more in production, which we will of course keep you in the loop with if it’s of interest.
As you may have seen in the press recently, we are looking to collect objects and first hand experiences to reflect Londoners’ lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will allow us to keep a record and ensure future generations of Londoners will be able to learn about and understand this extraordinary period. We are hoping to collect both physical and digital objects, reflecting the voices and experiences of a broad range of Londoners. From those working on the front line to those quietly working in the background, from parents turned home-school support to young people online gaming, the museum wants to collect objects from those that can tell the story of London in lockdown.
If any Constructors would like to contribute, please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we would love to hear from you.
In addition to this, in lieu of being able to visit the museum, the BBC have commissioned a fantastic film highlighting our The Clash: London Calling exhibition – do have a look, it’s great for any music fans, and it’s lovely to have the opportunity to still visit the museum, albeit virtually!
All the best from all of us, and please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or if I can help at all.
With all best wishes,
07966 288 644
Museum of London, 150 London Wall, London, EC2Y 5HN”
