Charlton House lights up for Christmas 2018

Yesterday afternoon The Charlton Champion, Friends of Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust and local councillors were invited to Charlton House for the inaugural lighting of its Christmas tree. Afterwards, mince pies, mulled wine and a welcome break from the cold and windy weather were on offer inside.

The trust’s Helen Moon told The Charlton Champion that it has exciting plans for a larger event in 2019, so watch this space for further information in the coming year.

News from Charlton House about its involvement in a new scheme providing support for local residents with learning disabilities:

Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust is delighted to announce that Charlton House has been confirmed as A Safe Place, part of a network of shops, cafes, museums and heritage buildings around the Royal Borough of Greenwich where any local resident with a learning disability can go for help should they need it.

With funding from the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), support from the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Metropolitan Police, the Safe Place Scheme was set up by Advocacy in Greenwich.
