FHPKG AGM 28 March 2014

The AGM of the Friends took place on March 25 at the Lancaster London Hotel under the chairmanship of Sue Price, who brought the audience up to date on events and developments.

Royal Parks CEO Linda Lennon briefed the audience on the responsibilities of her organisation and the issues facing it at present, particularly on the financial front.

Guest speaker Nigel Williams entertained the audience with a lively account of the the 1851 Great Exhibition. The site of the Great Exhibition has now been marked in Hyde Park, by means of 5 glass and concrete plaques which show the sheer scale of the footprint occupied by the structure.

The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 provides fellowships and grants for pure research in science and engineering, applied research in industry and industrial design. For more info click here
