Two events for your diary: Charlton hustings, Riverside walk


We have two events coming up that we’re excited about and we hope you will be too. Firstly, the Charlton Community General Election Hustings, which will be held in the Assembly Rooms, Charlton Village, at Sunday 4th June 2017, 2:30pm. This free event is a chance to meet and question all four of the candidates seeking your vote in Greenwich and Woolwich in the general election. All are welcome, whether you’re a member or not.

The Charlton Community Hustings is supported and organised by four local community groups: The Charlton Society, Charlton Central Residents’ Association, Parkside Community Hub, & Valley Hill Community Hub.

Secondly, we know that many Society members were very interested in the work on Charlton’s riverside industrial heritage that was carried out as part of Greenwich Council’s work on the recent Riverside masterplan. We’re very pleased to be able to say that James Hulme, the report’s author, has agreed to host a riverside walk on Sunday 25th June for our members.

The Group will meet at 11am by the Thames Barrier cafe, and will end around 1pm by Greenwich Yacht Club. The walk will follow the river path and most of the walk is along stable footpaths.
We need to allocate places on the walk, so can anyone wishing to join us please get in touch by emailing Nikki at this email address:
You might also be interested to know that James will be giving a talk to the Greenwich Industrial Society on Tuesday 13th June, Meetings held 7.30 The Old Bakehouse, Bennett Park, SE3 (rear of Age Exchange): please note that there’s no free parking available.
