186/366 Incorporation

Over the weekend I finished reading the latest issue of B&W Photography. Ordinarily I would write a piece about an article in the magazine that inspired me. Although I enjoyed reading the mag, there was nothing init that really got my virtual pen going.

I’ve gone back to the Gosport Record. The issue I’m reading at the moment was printed in May 1972. All of the articles are interesting, but the one which talks about the Incorporation of the area as a borough. I’m only going to say a little bit about it here as I need to do a bit of research. You’ll notice my wording above, where I don’t say the Incorporation of Gosport because it is more complicated than you might expect. Alverstoke pre-dates Gosport.

There were a couple of attempts to incorporate. Initially abandoned because it became too contentious, resulting the exchange of insults and threats. The battle was over should it be the Borough of Gosport and Alverstoke, or the Borough of Alverstoke and Gosport? The battle was resolved through a House of Lords enquiry. I definitely feel a Vlog here. That’s why I need to do some research.

The story of incorporation and the struggle to achieve it didn’t come as a surprise to me this time. I’ve read about it in a book I bought quite a while ago; The Story of Gosport in which this event was reported in a bit more detail. I would every much like to get copies of newspaper reports, copies of minutes from committees and if possible the report from the inquiry. The Gosport Record piece mentions specific locations and houses. Are they still there? I can definitely see potential in this.

I’m very glad I bought the records. I am enjoying reading them.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
