Hidden Histories

Working Lives of the Thames Gateway is a Stratford based project - they are running a series of events around the whole of east and south east London this summer based on work place histories - details from www.hidden –histories.org.uk . They have a list of industries where they are keen to contact people who worked there to hear their stories – one of them is our local South Metropolitan Gas Co at East Greenwich Gas Works – contact anna@ech.org.uk

They have a local meeting at Greenwich Heritage Centre with archive films from around the area. (they say they will be presented by young people from Bexley - why?? Greenwich has its own film projects for young people!). The event will be on Saturday 13th June 1.00-4.00.

other events in connection with this include:
1st June - talk at Barking and District Historical Society
4th June - Women in the workplace. Bexley Archives 7-8
8th June - talk at Havering Riverside Club
15th - talk at South Elm Women's Club
17th - talk at Chadwell Heath Historical Society
26th June - Kamal Chunchie and the Coloured Men's Institute. Old Town Hall, Stratford 6.30
