Anniversary conference

800 years of linking London’s communities

A Report on the City Bridge Trust 800th Anniversary Conference

2009 was the 800th anniversary of the completion of the first stone London Bridge. To mark the occasion we held a major conference, 800 Years of Linking London’s Communities, which explored the many diverse ways communities come together and looked at a variety of innovative mechanisms which build social capital and community cohesion

This somewhat unconventional report does not provide a minute-by-minute record of topics discussed, but rather tries to give a flavour of sessions, synthesise issues raised and reflect on wider underlying themes.
