Women’s work

Did you work in Industry in Bexley or Greenwich at any time from the 1930s - 1970s?

A morning of reminiscence for women workers at the Greenwich Heritage Centre, Wednesday 24th February 2010, 10:30am - 12:00

Did you work on the shop floor, offices, the canteen, the science labs, drawing offices, typing pools or as a cleaner in a factory in Greenwich or Bexley?

Eastside Community Heritage, Bexley Local Studies and Archives and Greenwich Heritage are holding a reminiscence session for women workers. This is a chance to have an informal chat with other women who worked at the time. We would love to hear your stories. Come along and give your account of what it was like at work when women were encouraged to stay at home.

Time & Place: The Greenwich Heritage Centre, Artillery Square, Royal Arsenal, Woolwich SE18 4DX, Wednesday February 24th, 10:30am-12. For further details please contact Will Atkinson at Eastside Community Heritage on 0208-553-4343 or will@ech.org.uk.

Interesting to note that even in this part of the world, there was a time when women were encouraged to stay at home. Will the proceedings of this meet be published here. Would be nice to read about the true stories.
