'At the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, we envisage a society less dominated by criminalisation and punishment, because we find better ways to prevent and address the problems we face. Through our collaborations, local, national and international, we take practical steps to achieve this vision in the here and now. We also acknowledge the significant barriers we face. As the pace of social, economic and technological change is quickening, our approach to law and order is stuck in the past. After years of legislative hyperactivity, there is an abundance of law, and an absence of order. Too many communities are over-policed and under-protected. All-too-often, unnecessary criminalisation compounds, rather than addresses, problems. We are committed to working with others to mark out transformative solutions to the problems we face, and to address the harmful consequences of our over-reliance on policing, prosecution and punishment.'

'The Garden Museum explores and celebrates British gardens and gardening through its collection, temporary exhibitions, events and garden. Visitors will also see a permanent display of paintings, tools, ephemera and historic artefacts: a glimpse into the uniquely British love affair with gardens. Whether you are an enthusiastic amateur gardener, more of a specialist or someone with a passion for museums, history or architecture, the Museum has something for you.'

'We are dedicated to the study of British and International Ceramics, both porcelain and earthenware, from the earliest Roman time up to the present day. We offer illustrated lectures by leading ceramic experts at London, visits to places of ceramic interest, and a Seminar in October each year. New members are always made very welcome and we all enjoy sharing knowledge and discussing the pots they collect.'

'The SCRSS organises a regular programme of lectures, film shows, exhibitions, seminars and other events at its premises in London ... Events are open to both SCRSS members and non-members, unless otherwise stated ... The SCRSS was founded in 1924 as the Society for Cultural Relations between the Peoples of the British Commonwealth and the USSR, following the establishment of diplomatic relations between Great Britain and the new Soviet state. It has continued its work uninterrupted until the present day. The Society's founding members were a group of key British and Soviet artists and intellectuals of the day, including EM Forster, Julian Huxley, Maynard Keynes, Bertrand Russell, Sybil Thorndyke, Alexei Tolstoy, Virginia Woolf and Konstantin Yuon.'

'Founded in 1910 in Tulse Hill, the South London Botanical Institute has a beautiful botanical garden and runs a wide range of courses, workshops, school visits and events for all ages ... The Institute has a diverse membership, including amateur and professional botanists, gardeners, artists, photographers, ecologists, writers, campaigners and others who have an urge to learn more about plants.'
