Talk about Woolwich at the Charlton Society AGM this Saturday

Powis Street
The Charlton Society AGM will include a talk on Woolwich

The Charlton Society, the local amenity society for the area, is having its annual general meeting on Saturday, with both members and non-members welcome to come along.

The society aims to “celebrate the past and protect the future of Charlton”, and new members can sign up at the meeting (download a form). It recently played a part in getting two new housing developments on the Charlton Riverside refused by Greenwich Council.

There’s a lot to discuss in Charlton right now, but the society has opted to have a talk about Woolwich in the second part of its AGM.

It says…

The layout of the room will be slightly different to allow for social distancing. Wearing masks is optional but we ask that you use the hand sanitiser provided.

We will ask you to sign in but, for this special meeting, we will not charge for refreshments. We will also be accepting annual subscriptions and this year should be able to offer contactless payment, although you might like to bring cash with you in case there is a technical glitch!

The Meeting will take place in two sections. The first section will deal with the business of the Annual General Meeting (at which non-members will not be able to vote) and the second part will be a talk presented by David Gardner who will outline the “Challenges Facing Woolwich”. As ward councillor for Woolwich Common David is well placed to bring us up to date with the multiple changes facing the Town and district.

The event begins at 2.30pm on Saturday in the Grand Salon at Charlton House.
