History: recent former directors
Our records of past centuries are patchy. Until the 1980s, the role of Director was known as 'Manager and Receiver, and Clerk'. At that stage, the main focus was management of the several hundred Walcot and Hayles properties. Only in recent times has the focus turned more to the central mission of the relief of poverty in Lambeth. Our housing stock, along with investments, generates the income used to fund our work.
