How much do you know about the place where you live? A little while back, a small group of intrepid members spent several afternoons at Bishopsgate Institute researching the archives to find out more about the corner of East London where we live. This month we're going to be sharing some of that research with you. We have a quiz, one you might want to do with one or two of your EEWI buddies and, yes, there will be prizes. We'd love it too if you could share some of your memories or pictures of the place you live(d) with us too - somewhere you worked perhaps, jolly days out, where you went to school (we promise we'll take very good care of them.) So join us for an evening of exploration and memories. And because it's October, members can bring a friend for free. You may need some help with that quiz, you know.
We're meeting on Tuesday 15th October at St Margaret's House, Old Ford Road, in the hall behind the Gallery Cafe, doors open at 7pm from a 7.30pm start. Free tea and coffee, other drinks and refreshments by donation. If you'd like to bring some cake or savouries to share that would be lovely. Gives you a chance to keep your hand in with the baking. We'll also be having a short talk from Jan O'Brien from Tower Hamlets Befriending Service. We'll also be collecting items for users of Tower Hamlets Foodbank - not food, but toiletries like shampoo, shower gel, toilet rolls, detergent etc.
If you fancy a bit of company over a cup of something, pop along to our coffee morning at 10.30am on Friday18th October. We'll be meeting at The Larder in Globe Road, E2.
And if you fancy coming out one evening, our bookclub meeting is on Tuesday 22nd (contact us for details), and Knit and Natter is at the Coborn Arms on Thursday 24th, 6.30pm - 8.30pm.
Hope to see you soon.
