Bassishaw Ward has a central position among the 25 wards within the City of London. It is bounded by Noble Street to the west, Coleman Street to the east, Fore Street to the north of London Wall and Gresham Street to the South. The ward contains Guildhall, the Guildhall Library and Guildhall Art Gallery.
Ward clubs are a part of the democratic evolution of the City government, and one of their objectives is to preserve civic democracy. They arose to continue the intimate relationship between electors and elected and give an opportunity to have a say in local matters, enjoy social events and take part in charitable causes.
Members can meet their representatives on the Common Council, give them ideas or ask for help with problems and find out about the work of the Corporation.
Meet your elected representatives—Each ward in the City elects an Alderman and a number of Common Councilmen in proportion to its size. Bassishaw has two Common Councilmen.
Explore organised club visits—recent visits have included a tour and talk at the College or Arms, the Salters’ Hall, the Church of St Lawrence Jewry, Two Temple Place, Schroders Archive at the new Schroders building. All visits are followed by drinks and snacks and are a great opportunity to socialise.
Enjoy interesting lunches and dinner with speakers—in venue like the Members’ Private Dining Room in the Guildhall, Aldermen’s Dining Room also in the Guildhall and the City University Club
Participate in events with other ward clubs—like the annual Inter Ward Club Quiz
