18th Century women in the City

From 21 September – 18 October Cheapside will host an outdoor exhibition of women traders. In the 18th century, as now, the Cheapside area was known for its luxury goods. Unlike now, most of those goods were made on the premises, and among the manufacturers and shop owners were hundreds of women milliners, fan-makers, silversmiths, and scores of other trades.

Championing Future Thinkers

The City of London School for Girls hosted a highly successful 125th Anniversary Gala Dinner at Guildhall in July, entitled Championing Future Thinkers. The event raised funds to increase the proportion of means-tested bursary places at the school from the current level of 16%.

Bold new vision for transport in the City

The City of London is the most accessible part of the Capital, served by 15 Tube stations, seven Tube lines, eight mainline stations, multiple bus routes and a fast-evolving bicycle network.Understandably, with a working population of 513,000 and home to over 8,000 residents, delivering modern transport infrastructure changes to historic Square Mile streets is uniquely challenging.That is one reason why the City Corporation’s most senior decision-making body, the Court of Common Council, last voted to approve bold proposals that form a 25-year draft Transport Strategy. This means a variety of things. The most drastic change will be that the Square Mile will become the first area in the UK with a 15mph speed limit, subject to government approval.And it doesn’t stop there. The Transport Strategy includes proposals for a Zero Emissions Zone, and making the most efficient use of street space by significantly reducing motor traffic, prioritising the needs of people walking, and delivering a world-class public realm.
