Bits of news - including - Greenwich back in Kent

We understand that a Kent IA section is being set up with an inaugural meeting in February - we also understand that they are looking at the historic county - which means us! More details when we have them - and see you there!

Greenwich Historical Association - meeting on Wednesday 26th January 2011 - is about the The Making of a Map - by RICH SYLVESTER who will talk about the the process of making a history map of Greenwich Peninsular and East Greenwich.
Rich worked closely with several of our members on this project and we look forward to hearing about it from him. Suspect this is at Blackheath High School, Mycenae Road entrance, 7.30 but you should check

GLIAS - meeting on 19th January at Willhoughby Theatre, Charterhouse Square, 18.30. This is about early computers in London by Dan Hayton. We have been feeding Dan lots of information about London Borough of Greenwich's John Humpheries House and its Leo III. Hopefully he will also take in Elliott Automation - which was on the Tesco site in Lewisham

Our programme (so far) for the next year is as follows:
all at the Old Bakehouse, Bennett Park 7.30

18th January Andy Brockman The First Blitz: The Eaglesfield Park Anti Aircraft Gun Site and the defence of Woolwich Arsenal in WW1.
