Our current lockdown which we hoped would just be a week or two now seems to be indefinite.
Meanwhile our work continues apace, if from our homes rather than the Drill Hall.
Our History Victoria bookshop continues to send out on-line book orders around the world – check out the bookshop here. Our phones are switched through to our Administrator, Rebecca Toohey, and she will pass messages on to other staff. Our post-box at 239 A’Beckett Street is sufficiently large to take parcels so deliveries can continue and other mail will not be affected. Our email addresses are:
Jillian Hiscock, Collections Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
Helen Stitt, Collections Officer, Images email@example.com
Jess Scott, Marketing Officer firstname.lastname@example.org
Noha Ghobrial, bookkeeper email@example.com
Rebecca Toohey, Administrator firstname.lastname@example.org
Rosemary Cameron, Executive Officer email@example.com
Site searches firstname.lastname@example.org
Emily Maiolo, VCHA Co-ordinator email@example.com

All our events and meetings for the lockdown period will be via Zoom.
We send our warmest wishes to all our members and friends and hope that you avoid illness and that lockdown isn’t too disruptive. Our thoughts are with those who are ill and those whose businesses and plans are hugely disrupted by this lock-down. Let’s get those vaccination rates up so we can approach something close to normal again.
