Some bits from a huge great pile of stuff

Lewisham Local History Society -  Newsletter - various things but not really to do with Greenwich Industry - but all very interesting. - The Cinema Museum, Kennington - Sydenham Children's Hospital - the fire at the Catford Prefab Museum - and thanks Lewisham for printing  our programme

- their 2015 programme feature the following sort of Greenwich or industrial things.  See www.lewishamhistory.org.uk  - 
30 January - The Mid Kent Line (speaker, Peter Leigh, will start at Spa Road - originally on the Greenwich Railway)
27th February - The Hatcham Ironworks (the story of George England - great south London industrial history interest)

31st Seaside Sauce, cartoonist Donald McGill (who lived I think in the Greenwich bit of Blackheath)
25th September, Orthodox Churchman the Metropolitan Seraphim talks about saving Catford Town Hall in 1961 (correct me if I am wrong, but I think he lives in Charlton)
