The next talk in the Emery Walker series of online talks takes place on Wednesday 17 November at 7pm. The subject will be Ernest Gimson and Friends: Life and Letters.

Ernest Gimson's career as an architect and designer is documented in a variety of sources, arguably, the most vivid being the letters he wrote to family and friends. This talk will outline Gimson's life and work through the medium of his correspondence with, among others, Katharine Adams, Ernest Barnsley, Sydney Cockerell, J. Paul Cooper, W. R. Lethaby, William and May Morris, and Philip Webb.

Annette Carruthers is co-author with Mary Greensted and Barley Roscoe of Ernest Gimson: Arts & Crafts Designer and Architect, published by Yale University Press in 2019. She and Barley are currently working on Gimson's letters.

These live, interactive talks are part of a programme of monthly events via Zoom organised by Emery Walker’s House Trust. Entry is by donation. Prebook via Emerywalker.org.uk.

The Emery Walker Trust is a registered charity which aims to preserve and open the House for as many people to enjoy as possible. The Trust also aims to improve knowledge of the Arts & Crafts movement and the life and work of Sir Emery Walker.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
