A word from Charlton Society chair Carol Kenna…
Dear Charlton friends,
Please come and join us for the Charlton Society AGM this coming Saturday, October 17th in Charlton House, starting at 2.30pm.
Charlton has seen a lot of changes in the last year. Please come along to the AGM and tell us what you like about Charlton, and what you don’t. We’d love to have more members and more of you involved.
The past year has been a very busy one for the Society and largely unnoticed as our public face is rather like a handsome swan – calm above the water – for the Society a successful series of talks and paddling like crazy below – setting up sub-groups to facilitate an ever-burgeoning programme of work, setting up our website, encouraging new members and taking an active part with other local and borough-wide organisations keeping a careful eye on new developments either in Charlton or those which will have a major impact on Charlton.
Saturday will present an interesting programme in addition to the regular AGM business. The committee will present its past year to you and we hope that you will join us in discussing the progress made and what still needs to be done.
We will also have three guest speakers: Greenwich mayor Norman Adams will give a short presentation, Matthew Pennycook MP will be present and we look forward to his reflections on his early months in his new role. Finally Mark Hughes of AECOM consultants will be giving a short presentation on current progress with the Charlton Riverside Masterplan Phase 2 and their future programme of consultation.
It should be a busy and very interesting afternoon. Please join us for this important discussion, followed by a welcome cup of tea.
I hope you can join us on the 17th.
