The Trust thanks Carol Boucher and Fred Taggart

Carol and Fred resigned as Trustees last month, and made a public statement of their reasons.  We wish to thank Carol and Fred publicly for their huge contribution over the past 5 years trying to safeguard Carnegie for the Herne Hill community.

Also last month, ironically, another restoration project where Fred was a trustee, the Halifax Piece Hall, was joint winner of Historic England’s 2017 award for ‘Best Rescue of a Historic Building’.

Carol and Fred put in untold hours of voluntary work on Carnegie.  With their good knowledge of the local area, and long experience of Lambeth Council, they were ideally suited to be Trustees.  They are sorely missed.  We are very grateful that both are willing to continue supporting our project as volunteers.
