From Friday, 11 June the RHSV staff will return to the Drill Hall and our bookshop will be open. However, in line with Government recommendations, our Gallery and Library remain closed to the public. Please keep an eye on our website or social media as to when the public can, once again, visit our gallery and research facilities.
Our History Victoria bookshop will continue to send out on-line book orders – check out the bookshop here. Until Friday 11, our phones will be 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 of Victorian Community History Award material and other mail will not be affected. Our email addresses are:
Jillian Hiscock, Collections Manager email@example.com
Helen Stitt, Collections Officer, Images firstname.lastname@example.org
Jess Scott, Marketing Officer email@example.com
Liridon Shaqiri, bookkeeper firstname.lastname@example.org
Rebecca Toohey, Administrator email@example.com
Rosemary Cameron, Executive Officer firstname.lastname@example.org

All our events and meetings for the lockdown period will be by 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 hope that 7 days is sufficient to be a circuit-breaker and give the contact tracers time to get contacts tested and isolated.
