Charlton Parks Reminiscence Project 

The Charlton Society is very pleased to continue its association with Charlton Parks Reminiscence Project. Charlton is the home to 6 different parks and open spaces, each at the heart of their different neighbourhoods. The project looks at the history of each park, how they developed and stories relating their importance to local people over the past 100 years.

Royal Borough of Greenwich Civic Awards

It is with great pleasure we announce that that The Charlton Society was awarded a ‘Civic Award – Community’ at a ceremony held at Woolwich Town Hall in March 2019.

The Award was one of eleven community awards and one of a total of thirty-eight awards presented that evening. The Charlton Society was nominated by Cllr Linda Perks and we understand that over 200 nominations had been received.

The award was presented by the Mayor Cllr Christine May and Council leader Danny Thorpe and accepted on behalf of Charlton Society by Carol Kenna, Geoff Cooper and Pauline Langley.

At the same presentation our own Roden Richardson (Vice Chair) received a lifetime achievement award, so many congratulations to all.
