Visit: The Travellers Club
A joint event of Anglo-Hellenic League and Friends of British School at Athens
 
On 9 March 2016 members of the Anglo-Hellenic League held a joint gathering with the Friends of the British School at Athens in the Library of the Travellers Club. The purpose of the occasion was to view some of this Library’s rare and fascinating books relating to the earliest voyages of expedition made by British travellers to the historic sites of ancient Greece, and to see the replica of the frieze from the temple of Apollo Epikourios at Bassae. That temple was “discovered” by a group of travellers including Charles Cockerell, one of the founding members of the Travellers Club. Its original frieze, brought back by this group, is now in the British Museum, and the replica in the Travellers Club Library is one of only two ever made. Nearly 40 members of the two organizations attended. The Librarian of the Travellers Club, Sheila Markham, and Ian Jenkins of the British Museum greatly added to the interest of the occasion with deeply learned and fascinating talks about what we were seeing. From comments received after the event it appears that all present found it a richly rewarding experience.

For the Greece we love
A special event to support Elliniki Etairia
(Society for the Environment & Cultural Heritage www.ellet.gr)


On 24 February 2016 the Anglo-Hellenic League hosted a special event to support Elliniki Etairia, the Greek Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage, at the Hellenic Centre in London. 140 people attended the evening generously sponsored by the A. G. Leventis Foundation, and supported by the Centre.  Costa and Lydia Carras, the founders of Elliniki Etairia, spoke powerfully about the struggles and achievements of the Society over the last 40 years throughout Greece, with a stirring account of the campaigns it has fought against governments and developers, and many notable successes.


They showed the broad range of work Elliniki Etairia undertakes, to protect the built environment — buildings of national or local significance, or whole areas of a city like Plaka in Athens — and areas of the natural environment, whether significant for their natural history or (as with protection of the coast and restoration of long-distance footpaths) for people and recreation. We heard how the Society wins supporters inside Greece and beyond, working with the Europe-wide organisation Europa Nostra.


An estimated total, including Gift Aid, of £7300 was raised to support the work of Elliniki Etairia.
