We are delighted to be working with the Sir Joseph Banks Society on The Banks Endeavour project.

From the Sir Joseph Banks Society:

The aim of the Sir Joseph Banks Society is to stimulate interest in his life and achievements through education, research, publications and events, and by strengthening Lincolnshire links with Australia and New Zealand.

The Society has been formed by a group of Lincolnshire people and has its base in a recently restored period building in Horncastle appropriately named The Sir Joseph Banks Centre.

The building houses a growing reference library and is working towards establishing a research centre. A Joseph Banks Tribute Garden has been established which is now part of the National Gardens scheme. There is also a thriving gift shop which is owned and managed by Joseph Banks Ltd, a not for profit social enterprise.

Our first Life President of the Society is David N Robinson OBE MSc, retired University of Nottingham Senior Lecturer and researcher, writer, and lecturer on Banks.

We are extremely proud to have Sir David Attenborough as Patron of the Society.
