A Ward Club Serving two Wards
We provide the chance for those connected with the Ward, in whatever way, to meet each other and the Aldermen and Common Councillors that represent the Ward. Our events are social and municipal and we welcome new members, especially those who work in the area.
In case you don’t know, Vintry and Dowgate are two of 25 Wards in the City of London. The Vintry Ward Club was founded in 1877 and the Dowgate Club in 1896. The current arrangement is the result of the two clubs joining together in 1957 as the resident population declined and each club membership fell.
As a consequence the Club is represented by two Aldermen elected by Ward voters. Alison Gowman is Alderman for Dowgate Ward and Dr. Sir Andrew Charles Parmley Alderman for Vintry Ward. They are supported by four Common Councillors who are Henry Pollard and Mark Wheatley for Dowgate Ward and Rehana Ameer and Jaspreet Hodgson for Vintry Ward.
Eight Lord Mayors have been elected from the Vintry & Dowgate Wards including one of our Aldermen, Dr Andrew Parmley and our Patron, Alderman Sir Christopher Leaver.
