Welcome to the new and improved Glasgow Helps. Click here to find out more about the site and the changes we've made..
We know that community organisations come in many shapes and sizes and that some of you have single purpose in a specific community whereas others offer different services across the city.
Glasgow Helps focuses on individual services to make it easier for people to find what they really need.
Before we ask you for details of the services you want to list, we'll ask you about your overall organisation first so that we can create your profile. If they're one and the same and you'll only ever have one service to list, don't worry, we'll take that into account as we go - we know your time is valuable.
Protecting Alexander Thomson’s legacy and his architectural heritage.
The Alexander Thomson Society was founded in 1991 by Dr Gavin Stamp to celebrate the life and work of one of Glasgow’s most influential nineteenth century architects.
Thomson (1817-1875) was a prolific architect designing numerous villas, terraces, tenements and commercial buildings as well as four churches all either in or around Glasgow.
A major public commission eluded him perhaps leading to the belated recognition of his genius.
The Society is dedicated to the protection, conservation and promotion of the architect’s surviving buildings by way of monitoring their present condition, holding an annual series of talks around Thomson‘s birthday on April 9th, lectures to other societies and academic institutions, publications and a number of guided walks throughout the city and its environs.
The Board meets once a month within premises in the centre of Glasgow and which holds the Society’s archive of Thomson material. The Society’s patron is the Earl of Glasgow.
