New leisure 
centre 
planned for 
Woolwich 


by Dick Townsend-Smith 


■ 


PLANS for a brand new leisure centre 
in the heart of Woolwich town centre 
are being drawn up as part of the 
council’s long-term vision for the area. 

The proposal for the new facility was 
agreed at a recent meeting of the council’s 
cabinet and will see the new centre built 
on the site currently occupied by the local 
Wilkinson store. 

When building works are completed, 
residents will benefit from being able to 
undertake a wide range of sport activities 
from a brand new, bigger and easily 
accessible facility. New features such as 
cafes and play areas will be introduced to 
make it a family friendly space, alongside 
more traditional features such as a multi- 
use sports hall and squash courts. 

Wilkinson have confirmed that they 
will stay in Woolwich but will relocate to 
another town centre site. 

The plan forms a central plank of the 
Woolwich Masterplan - the overall vision 
for the town centre aimed at promoting 
economic growth and regeneration. 

Woolwich is undergoing a rapid 
transformation, with a new Crossrail 
link due to open in 2018. The latest plans 
would make an important contribution to 
breathing new life into the town. 

They offer the chance to encourage 
more shoppers to Woolwich by attracting 
more people into the town to use the new

Thanks for such a 
proactive response 


THANK you for 
publishing my letter 
a few weeks ago. I 
have just received the 
Sainsbury’s gift card as 
a result of winning the 
previous week’s star 
letter - thank you so 
much, very handy! 

I would also like it to 
be known how much 
the visit to my home 
impressed and surprised 
me (I almost choked on 
my toast!). 

I would have thought it 
very rare for a council to 
make the effort to listen 
to its residents in this 
way, very impressive! 

I will look into ways 
to go forward with my 
quest for a less-littered 
Plumstead. 

I may do it with 
neighbours etc or, as 
you so kindly gave me 
information about it, go 


down the Environment 
Champions route. 

I am settling in really 
well, as I am new to 
the area, the people of 
Plumstead are kind, 
considerate and nice. 
Once again thank you 
very much. 

Lena Williams, Plumstead 
• A council spokesperson 
said: "Thanks for your 
letter Lena. We're delighted 
that you found the visit 
by members of the street 
cleansing team beneficial. 
We hope that the home 
visit will help assure you 
that the area will be kept 
really clean and tidy in 
the future." If anyone else 
would like to make any 
suggestions about how we 
can work together to keep 
the borough clean, we will 
happily ask a member of 
the street cleansing team to 
contact you. 


I'll do 100 mile bike ride this 
year - somewhere! 



MANY thanks for your 
excellent double page 
spread ‘It’s Time To 
Get On Your 
Bike,’ (February 11). 

There’s no excuse 
now for people of 
any age or ability 
not to get out and 
start cycling. Thank 
you for your very nice 
article on me. 

Since publication, I have been 
notified by RideLondon that 
I have not been successful in 
winning a place in the ballot for 
their event. 

I am gutted! 

However, losers are invited 
to write a piece in no more 
than 140 words explaining 
why they deserve a place in 
RideLondon, which takes in 
a route of 100 miles round 
London and Surrey ridden by 


Olympians in 2012. 

I have written in, but I 
have only a very small 
hope of success. 
Whatever happens, 

I will complete a 100 
mile ride this year 
with my cycling club 
and am already in 
training. 

This is the challenge I have 
set myself this year.

HAPPY SPORTS: 
The children 


can now enjoy 
lots of different 
sports on their 
multi-use area % 


MOST schools would be delighted if one 
celebrity turned out to open their new 
sports faciilties. 

But atTimbercroft Primary School last 
Friday, dozens of well-known faces from the 
world of sport could be spotted. 

That's because the children combined 
raising money for BBC's Sport Relief, for 
which they were asked to come dressed as 
sports stars, with the opening of their multi- 




I JF 




use games area (MUGA). Welling United 
manager Jamie Day attended the opening, 
along with the Mayor of the Royal Borough 
of Greenwich, Cllr Angela Cornforth. 

The school, in Plumstead, has been using 
the area, which has basketball hoops and 
football goalposts, since the turn of the 
year after raising the money itself. 

School administrator Paul Nichols 
explained: "We've been yearning for 


something like this for a couple of years. 

"It was all installed just before Christmas 
and we began using it just after." 

The blue-surfaced facility replaces part of 
the playground and will be used at break 
times and for PE. 

It was used during the day for sponsored 
activities to raise funds for Sport Relief. 
Another activity on the day was a 
sponsored silence. 


Bigger and better leisure centre 
for Woolwich moves step closer 


From page 1 O 

centre with all the main 
amenities and attractions 
in one place. 

The new leisure centre 
would provide a high- 
quality building right at 
the gateway to the town, 
opposite the main public 
transport stops of Woolwich 
Arsenal and the DLR station 
and the main bus hub. 

Cllr Peter Kotz, the 
council’s cabinet member 
for culture and creative 


industries, said: “This is all 
about building a brilliant 
and modern leisure centre 
for Woolwich which will 
have all the same facilities 
and family focus as the 
current Waterfront Centre. 

“Like the Waterfront, 
it will offer a brilliant all- 
round sport and leisure 
facility but in a newer up to 
date building. 

“The Waterfont Centre is 
enjoyed by nearly a million 
customers a year, but its 
location on the fringe of the 


town centre and across a 
very busy road is far from 
ideal. 

“Bringing users into the 
heart of Woolwich, and 
into a brilliant brand new 
building, makes sense for 
them as well as the town as 
a whole.” 

The nest stage is to carry 
our feasibility studies and a 
consultation with users. 

• The existing Waterfront 
leisure centre will remain 
open until the new facility 
is fully operational. 


£3.4m for schools improvements 


NEW boilers, windows and roofs are 
among improvements that will take place 
in 10 primary schools in the next year, 
after councillors agreed to a £3.4 million 
maintenance programme. 

The improvements - agreed by the 
council’s cabinet last Wednesday - are the 
latest phase in an ongoing programme of 
investment by the council. 

The improvements will play an 
important part in reducing carbon 
admissions and enabling schools to 
reduce their energy bills. 

Roofs will be replaced at Rockcliffe 
Manor, Cherry Orchard and James Wolfe 
primaries. 

Water pipes will be replaced at 
Alderwood and heating and hot water 
boilers at Heronsgate, while Brookland 


will have alarm system renewed. 
Rewiring of the main teaching block will 
take place at Woodhill while the roof and 
window replacements will take place at 
Deansfield and Timbercroft. Kidbrooke 
Park will also gain new windows. 

The investment in building 
improvements takes place alongside the 
royal borough’s programme to expand 
the number of school places to meet the 
needs of a growing population. 

Cllr Jackie Smith, cabinet member for 
children and young people, said: “It’s a 
high priority for us to ensure that our 
children have a modern, comfortable 
environment in which to learn, while 
our teachers and other school staff also 
have a right to a comfortable working 
conditions.”

by Dick Townsend-Smith 


BUILDING work has begun on a new 
borough skills centre, which will 
help open doors for people wanting 
to work in parks and open spaces. 

The Horticulture Skills Centre, on 
Shooters Hill, is part of one of four skills 
centres in the borough. 

It will be the second half of the 
Horticulture and Equestrian Skills 
Centre, being run in partnership with 
Hadlow College, and due to open later 
this year. 

Courses will be offered in landscaping, 
parks and open spaces management, 
horticulture, green-keeping and laying 
sports turf. 

There will also be the chances to do 
courses to become licensed for using 
chainsaws and other machinery. 

The centre will run introduction courses 
and apprenticeship training, courses for 
people who want to work for themselves, 
and up-skilling courses for those already 
in the industry. 

It is the latest in a set of pioneering skills 
centres being set up by the council to give 
residents the chance to be trained for 


sectors which have good job prospects. 

Those already established are the Digital 
Skills Centre on the Greenwich Peninsula 
and the Catering and Hospitality Skills 
Centre at Charlton. 

Last November, the council also voted 
to set up a construction skills centre in 
Kidbrooke. 

Jordan Fuller, 19, and Thomas 
Woodcock, 20, are already training for 
a career in horticulture with Hadlow. 
They are on a 15-month apprenticeship 
with the council’s Parks and Open Spaces 
department and are studying for an NVQ 
qualification in horticulture. 

Thomas said: “It’s a healthy career, 
getting outdoors and not being in an office. 
There’s always something different to do 
as the work is driven by the seasons. 

“I’m doing tree surgery and it’s really 
hard work. I’d never realised before how 
necessary tree surgery is and how much 
goes into maintaining trees. And I really 
like the contribution we’re making. It’s 
about keeping the borough tidy, safe and 
presentable to members of the public.” 

Jordan added: “I liked the idea of an 
apprenticeship and I liked the idea of 
gardening. A lot of my family work in 
this area, so I’ve already done a lot of 


landscaping. I am hoping to become an 
arborist, so I’m doing my qualification. 

“I really would recommend doing 
horticulture as there’s so much work out 
there, not just here but abroad.” 

The equestrian centre, formally opened 
by HRH The Princess Royal in December, 
already has local students studying 
courses in equine care and management. 

Cllr Denise Hyland, the cabinet member 
for regeneration, enterprise and skills, 
said: “The reason we’re making this 
investment in our skills centres, and 
choosing partners like Hadlow, is that 
they will offer our residents very real 
sustainable career paths. 

“Hadlow has excellent links with 
industry and anyone studying in the 
new skills centre will have a great 
chance of getting long-term employment 
afterwards. 

“We believe the best way to fight poverty 
and to improve people’s long-term 
prospects is through employment. 

“We’re opening skills centres in sectors 
that we know offer excellent chances to 
get a job and build a career - whether 
that’s in the digital industry, hospitality 
and catering, construction or land-based 
and equestrian industries.”

ROYAL 

GREENWICH 


PLEASED TO MEET YOU: Players enjoy a handshake before a match 


of the integration through sport scheme, 
from 6-8pm. 

The sports on offer will be sailing, 
rugby, football, dance, cricket, basketball 
and athletics, with programmes running 
over 15 months in four wards - Woolwich 
Riverside, Woolwich Common, Glyndon 
and Charlton. 

The project, aimed at people aged 14 
upwards and throughout adulthood, has 
been set up by a £150,000 grant from Sport 
England and government funding, after 
the royal borough’s bid was put together 
by Charlton Athletic Community Trust 
(CACT). 

Greenwich was the only London borough 
to receive the funding, with other projects 
being carried out in Manchester, Kirklees 
and Luton. 

Other funders include the royal 
borough, Greenwich Leisure Limited and 
Greenwich Dance and Charlton Athletic. 

Dance has been included because it 
plays a strong part in most cultures and 
was found to be the second most popular 
activity after football in a survey of 50,000 
14-year-olds. 

Venues for the 15-month programmes 
of activities will be the Waterfront, the 
Greenwich Islamic Centre, The Gambia 
United Society, the Royal Arsenal Academy, 
Ahoy sailing centre, Somali Education and 
Cultural project (Clockhouse Community

Cllr Peter Kotz, the royal borough’s 
cabinet member for culture and creative 
industries, said: “There are a great many 
different cultures in our community. 
Sport is a fantastic way of learning skills 
such as teamwork. This project is an 
excellent way of bringing people from 
different backgrounds together when 
they otherwise might not have met, then 
using the bonds built through sport to 
break down social barriers, with the idea 
of bringing communities together in 
different ways.”

Ofsted toutstanding'for children's centre 



FULL PROGRAMME: Fun outdoor activities as well as cookery courses and 
sewing classes help parents gain new skills and confidence at the centre 


every way. 

That’s the official 
verdict from government 
inspectors on Eglinton 
Children’s Centre in Paget 
Rise, Woolwich. 

The centre offers services 
such as health and 
development checks, post 
and ante-natal classes and 
parenting advice. 

It also provides fun 
activities and a toy library, 
creative arts sessions and 
coffee mornings. 

Ofsted inspectors said 
it is ‘outstanding’ for the 
way it delivers services 
to families with young 
children , the quality of 
them, and how the centre 
is led and managed. It is 
the first children’s centre 
in the borough to be rated 
‘outstanding’ in every 
category. 

Ofsted inspectors 

described centre head, 
Maggie Carney, as “an 
inspirational leader.” 
She said: “I am delighted 
with the outcome of our 
inspection, which reflects 
the hard work of all who 
work and engage with the 
centre. This includes our 
families and their young 


children, and a range of 
professionals and services 
providers. 

“I believe the centre 
encompasses all that is 
teamwork in meeting the 
needs of our community, 
and I thank everybody 
involved.” 

They added: “The success 
of the centre in delivering 
outstanding services is the 
way in which it has helped 
to significantly improve 
the life chances of the 
most vulnerable families 
in the most disadvantaged 


communities.” 

The centre is planning 
a big celebration to mark 
the Ofsted report on 
Wednesday, April 2, with 
parents, children, staff 
and special guests taking 
part. 

Cllr Jackie Smith, the 
royal borough’s cabinet 
member for children’s 
services, said: “Eglinton 
Children’s Centre is a 
major success story, and 
such centres are key to the 
success of early help for 
children and families.”

Water way to

OLYMPIC diver Tom Daley helped make it a 
'splashing' day out for these youngsters from 
Woodhill Primary School in Woolwich. 

The Year 4 and 5 pupils were paying a visit to 
the London Aquatics Centre after it opened its 
doors for public and community use. 

Woodhill Primary was one of the first schools 
to go for a swim session at the world-class 
facility. 

On their way into the centre they bumped 
into Olympic medal-winner Daley, who 
stopped for a photograph with them. 

Children took part in a fun aqua splash 
session designed to build their confidence in 
the water. 

Musab, from Year 4, said: "It was an 
experience of a lifetime. I have never seen such 
an interesting building shaped this way." 

Classmate Sherif said: "The inflatable 
obstacles were great fun. They were hard to 
climb but we helped each other." 

Destiny, from Year 5, said of the centre: "It 
made me feel alive. _ There was so much 
space and the surroundings 

were beautiful. 
You can see 
the Olympic 
Stadium 
while you

Boost your tourism 


by Dick Townsend-Smith 

ALL the stops will be pulled out 
during English Tourism Week next 
week to encourage people to visit 
Royal Greenwich. 

Local firms, such as gift and souvenir 
shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes, will be 
able to get expert advice to help boost their 
tourist trade from Visit Greenwich, the 
borough’s new destination management 
company. 

The company runs informal sessions, 
called Welcome Wednesdays, to meet 
businesses and talk about helping them. 

The next one is on Wednesday, April 30, 
at the 02, starting with a walk over the 
structure’s roof. The events are usually 
on the last Wednesday of the month. 

Visit Greenwich was set up in 
partnership with the council and local 
visitor attractions. They include Royal 
Museums Greenwich, the Old Royal Naval 
College (ORNC), Greenwich Market, the 
02, Thames Clippers, Greenwich Heritage 
Centre, Royal Blackheath Golf Club, 
the Thames Barrier Visitor Centre, the 
Greenwich Tavern, and the Greenwich 
Tour Guides Association. 

Visit Greenwich’s partners have offered 
to host the monthly events, so businesses 
interested in the tourism economy can go 
along and find out more. 

The aim is to increase the numbers of 
visitors and their length of stay, helping 
to boost the local economy and to create 
more jobs. 

This year is a landmark one for events, 
with the Tall Ships Festival in September. 
The borough is also commemorating the 
centenary of the First World War, as well 
as the 300th anniversary of the discovery 
of longitude, with exhibitions and events 
at Royal Museums Greenwich and the 
ORNC. 

In 2016, the new London City Cruise Port 
at Enderby Wharf is set to welcome up 
to 100 ships per year, providing a steady 
stream of visitors from abroad. 

New hotels being built will double the 
number of rooms available. 

Visitors can get expert advice about 
the attractions on offer by making the 
Tourist Information Centre in Cutty Sark 
Gardens their first port of call. 


Expert advice on hand for firms 


FIRST STOP: Greenwich's 
Tourist Information 
Centre was voted visitor 
information provider of the 



There is a wide range of leaflets, maps 
and guidebooks and people can buy 
tickets to attractions as well as fast- 
track tickets to some of London’s major 
visitor attractions and West End theatre 
shows. The centre also sells Oyster cards, 
National Express coach and river services 
tickets. 

Barrie Kelly, Visit Greenwich’s chief 
executive, said: “Our aim is to ensure that 
Greenwich makes the most of everything 
it has to offer. I am thrilled to be leading 
Visit Greenwich in realising the immense 
visitor potential that this world-class 
destination has. 

“I’m looking forward to working with a 
dynamic team and partners, who I know 
will help grow the market significantly. 

“With recent hotel development, and 
more in the pipeline, Greenwich is an 


ideal base for a short break - and being 
just 10 minutes to central London adds an 
extra selling point for our destination.” 

Cllr Chris Roberts, leader of the royal 
borough, said: “The borough has a wealth 
of visitor attractions which help to bring 
in more than 18 million visitors a year 
and £774 million to the local economy. 

“We look forward to working with 
Visit Greenwich to further improve 
our standing as a world-famous visitor 
destination for the benefits of residents 
and visitors alike.”

PLANNING AHEAD: sculptor Richard Lawrence and young people of Hughes 
Fields & Henrietta Young People's Project work on the plans for the park 

Locals start work on 
village green at 
community garden 


WORK has begun to 
improve and revamp the 
facilities at Charlotte Turner 
Gardens in Deptford. 

It's the final stage of a 
scheme to transform the 
gardens, on McMillan 
Street, and the nearby 
Twinkle Park in Borthwick 
Street, into a family-friendly 
village green and park for 
local people. 

The refurbishment will bring 
improvements including 
a new-look seating area, 
a grassed central play 
area, the development of 
an apple orchard and the 
re-installation of a row of 
cherry trees. 

The park's petanque court 
will also be improved, table 
tennis facilities will be 
installed and a fitness trail 
will be extended. 

There will also be a play 
area for toddlers within a 
fenced-off dog free area. 

It will feature a wrecked 
Viking ship, complete 
with figure head facing a 
sea monster and a sloped 
wooden deck will be ringed 
by boulders designed to 
provide clambering and 
climbing facilities. 

Local sculptor Richard 
Lawrence has been 
contracted to work with 
young people from Hughes 
Fields & Henrietta Young 
People's Project and the 
Armada Community 
Centre Parents & Children's 
Arts Group to design the 
decorative elements. 

Due for completion in mid- 


April, the project is being 
led by the Twinkle Park 
Trust with funding from 
the Trust and the Veolia 
Environmental Trust. 

Plans for the building and 
improving the gardens and 
park have been developed 
in consultation with 
local residents, schools, 
community organisations 
and the royal borough. 
Twinkle ParkTrust 
coordinator Carol Kenna 
said: "We are so glad that 


the wait for this much- 
needed work is now over. 
"The new play area will 
provide a valuable facility 
for Deptford, providing a 
focus where children can 
interact, have fun, use their 
imaginations, and exercise. 
"Enhancing the planting 
will also encourage greater 
wildlife, particularly birds 
and insects and improve 
the look of the park. We 
can't wait to see the work 
finished." 


Blood simple 

New community clinics mean shorter 
distances and waiting times for tests 


THE launch of new community 
blood clinics means patients will 
have both shorter travelling times 
and shorter waiting times when 
they need to have blood tests done. 

The clinics have been set up by the 
NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning 
Group. 

The CCG is providing a total of 33 new 
blood services clinics in the community. 

They include a hospital-based service, 
and clinics at 15 GP surgeries, nine 
pharmacies and a local dental surgery. 

It means a range of clinic locations and 
opening times across the borough for 
patients who need blood tests or those 
who need blood-clotting services. 

The new clinics will complement the 
current service provided by Lewisham 
and Greenwich NHS Trust at Queen 
Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Woolwich 
for patients who either need a hospital- 
based service or choose to attend hospital 
for their blood tests. 

Patients will be able to choose from 
13 new blood-testing clinics and 20 new 
clinics offering blood-clotting services. 

Local GP and chair of NHS Greenwich 
CCG Dr Hany Wahba said: “We developed 
the new services after talking to patients 
who told us that they do not want to go to 
hospital unless they really need to, and 


by Dan Stephens 


that they want better, faster access to 
blood-testing. 

“We have acted on this vital patient 
feedback which means patients will have 
easier, faster access to blood services 
closer to where they live or work. 

“And we are excited that a raft of 
new providers, including GP surgeries, 
pharmacies and a local dental surgery, 
will now join QEH in providing blood 
services.” 

Cllr John Fahy the royal borough’s 
cabinet member for adults and older 
people said: “The royal borough is 
committed to working with local NHS 
provision and the Greenwich CCG to 
deliver high quality health services for 
residents. 

“I’m pleased that better, faster access 
to blood-testing is being delivered as a 
result of direct consultation with local 
residents. Greenwich patients will see 
improvements in both the quality of 
blood services and more choice over 
where and when they access the services 
as a result of this decision.” 

• A list of the blood services options 
will be available on the Greenwich CCG 
website at www.greenwichccg.nhs.uk

CHEQUE-ING: main pic, Lance Bombardier Susie Pearce, Royal Artillery Band musician, with children at Deansfield Primary. Left, 
Lt Col Bob Christopher, Commander of the Woolwich Barracks, presents a cheque for the Islamic Youth Centre to Dr Tariq Abbasi 


THOUSANDS of pounds have been given to 
local organisations by the Army's Charity 
Fund in Woolwich. 

Dr Tariq Abbasi from the Islamic Youth 
Centre in Plumstead Road received a cheque 
for £750 from Lt Col Bob Christopher, 
Commander of the Woolwich Barracks earlier 
this month. Dr Abbasi matched the amount 
with a further £750 and both donations were 
matched by Lord Mohamed Sheikh so the 
youth centre received a total of £3,000. 

The army charity fund also presented a £500 
cheque to Greenwich and Bexley Hospice. 
Deansfield Primary School in Rochester Way, 
Eltham, received £750 to go towards travel 
and accommodation cost for children going 
on a school trip in July. And the fund is giving 


£1,000 to the Limited Edition Cycling Club in 
Eltham Park North, to help buy two cycles for 
its Riding for the Blind/Disabled scheme. The 
bikes will be handed over on Armed Forces 
Day on June 28. 

Major Gerry Porter from the Royal Artillery in 
Woolwich, who manages the fund, said: "We 
raise money throughout the year, which goes 
into our charity fund. Already this year we 
have made donations of £500 each to Royal 
British Legion branches atThamesmead and 
Abbey Wood, and the Eltham and Well Hall, 
with £300 to the Army Benevolent Fund. 

"We are a very diverse community in 
Greenwich, and we need to make sure that 
our funds can be made available to every part 
of the community."

CLUES TO THE PAST: Angela Narcisi and husband Neil came with 
information of her great great uncle Gunner Arthur Merridan 


DICKTOWNSEND-SMITH reports on the launch of a 
which is using real life stories to build a picture of lo 


Standing guard 


T HE royal borough’s plans to 
commemorate the centenary of 
the Great War were launched 
in great fanfare at the Greenwich 
Heritage Centre. 

Local people whose relatives served - and 
died - in the conflict came together to share 
information and memories. 

Backed by a £10,000 grant from the National 
Lottery, the project is researching the names 
carved on local war memorials. The aim is 
to find out more about the lives behind the 
names, and bring their stories to life again. 

Families are being asked to work with the 
museum and share what they know about 
the ancestors they lost in the four-year 
conflict, one of the bloodiest in the UK’s 
history with horrific casualties on all sides. 
Heritage Centre experts are working with 
volunteers, and families to build a picture of 
local life during the war years. 

As part of its regular Museum Late 
programme, the Heritage Centre at the 
Woolwich Arsenal stayed open for the 
evening on Thursday, March 13, so people 
could find out more about the Family Stories 
of the Great War project. 

Visitors included Angela Narcisi from 
Thamesmead and husband Neil. Angela’s 
great-great uncle, Gunner Arthur Merridan 
from the Royal Field Artillery, was killed in 
action on April 20, 1918, just seven months 
before the war ended. She said: “The 
Merridan family lived in Walmer Road, 
Plumstead, and Arthur was one of eight 
brothers who served, and was the only one 
to be killed. It would be nice if we could 
have a war memorial in Woolwich with all 
the names of local people on it. The only 
mention of my great-great uncle is in the 
Book of Remembrance at Shooters 
Hill Memorial Hospital.” 

A touring exhibition will be 
created at the end of the project, 
which will go into local schools 
and public buildings. 

Also at the launch were 
members of the Progress 
Estate residents’ association 
in Eltham. Originally 
called the Well Hall 
Estate, the Progress 
was built in 1915 to 
house arms workers 
needed at the 

Woolwich Arsenal. 

The association is 
planning to mount 
a centenary

TWO sentries in First World WarTommy' 
uniforms stood guard at the doors to the launch 
event. Jason Momitre and Terry Harley, both 
volunteers at the nearby Firepower! museum, 
challenged visitors with the bayonets with 
their Lee Enfield rifles. They included the 
Mayor, Cllr Angela Cornforth, Cllr Peter Kotz, 
the council's cabinet member for culture and 
creative industries, and seven-year-olds Jayla 
Ulin and Jayden Kandeh from Woolwich. The 
rifles were in service with the British Army, in 
different versions, from 1 898 right up until 1 956. 
The sentries also recreated an authentic recruiting 
station for would-be soldiers to sign up (far right).

Music Hall tribute 


Saving the past 
for the future 


pedal Heritage Centre project 
al life during the Great War 


A UNIQUE song all about the women who worked in the munitions 
factory at the Royal Arsenal was performed at the launch event by 
local choir the Woolwich Singers. 

Called 'She Works at Woolwich Arsenal Now', the music hall romance 
by Robert Donnelly is about a woman called Florie who gets a job at 
the arsenal while her beau and his chums are off at war. 

The Woolwich Singers community choir revived the song with its 
stirring lyrics and rousing chorus. 

(Below right) Representing the thousands of nurses who served 
during the Great War was Nurse Hermione Godfrey 
(actress Nichole Bird) from the Red 
Cross Voluntary Aid Detachment, 


T HREE members of Holy Trinity Church in 
Eltham (pictured left) told visitors about 
the church's unique memorial chapel to 
the First World War's Gallipoli campaign. In 
total, 43,750 allied soldiers died and at least 
85,000 Turkish soldiers lost their lives. 

The chapel is the only one of its kind in 
the world. It has been used for an annual 
Gallipoli memorial service every year since 
1921, and a fund has been launched by the 
congregation to refurbish it in time for the 
campaign's centenary on April 25 next year. 
Project team member John Towey said: "We 
help organise lectures about Gallipoli and 
are raising money to restore the chapel, 
which was dedicated in 1 91 7. For many 
years the Turkish ambassador used to come 
here to take part in the memorial service." 

• More details are at www.ht-e.org.uk 

A small, overgrown cemetery is all that 
remains of the Blue Cross Kennels, 
which began life in 1 899 as a kennels for 
the pets of army officers. 

The Blue Cross acquired them at the 
end of WWI to house dogs brought back 
by families returning from abroad. The 
kennels finally closed in 1958. 

A group of dog walkers, called the Friends 
of the Pet Cemetery, is working to restore 
the historic pet cemetery in Hornfair Park 
and are keen to hear readers' memories 
about the site on Shooters Hill Road, or 
memories that have been passed down. 
Secretary Jean Patrick said: "Our objective 
is to tackle the very neglected cemetery. We 
want to put in new benches and planting, 
and make it a sanctuary and a tribute to the 
men and women who went to war. 

"Many dogs went abroad as military 
working dogs, and when they came back 
they went into quarantine at the Blue Cross 
Kennels. We are researching the headstones 
in the cemetery. 

"Some have registration numbers on 
them, and one of them is for a soldier's 
pet monkey! They are mainly for wartime 
dogs and some got the Dickin Medal (the 
animals"Victoria Cross') for bravery and 
their contribution to the First World War."

SECOND RUN: The Glass-Eye Theatre company returns to 
Greenwich with The City and Iris later this month 


Theatre's eye for 
talent-spotting 

A YOUNG theatre company is asking its 
biggest supporter, Greenwich Theatre, to take 
a well-earned bow. 

The Glass-Eye Theatre company is currently 
on tour across the UK and with a date in 
Canada booked for May. They call in to 
Greenwich on March 30 with their production 
The City and Iris and they're thanking the 
Crooms Hill theatre for its part in their success. 

"Greenwich Theatre have been amazing and 
we simply wouldn't be doing all this without 
their help," said Glass-Eye Theatre's artistic 
director Cath Johnson. 

"They provide us with rehearsal space and 
James Haddrell - the theatre's artistic and 
executive director, has mentored me in things 
like funding, marketing and tour booking." 

With just a red rope as a prop. The City and 
Iris was a big success at Greenwich last year 
and returns on March 30, before it goes on to 
feature in the Ottawa International Children's 
Festival in May. 

James Haddrell, Greenwich Theatre's artistic 
and executive director, said: "Glass Eye is a 
great example of a young company with a 
really strong artistic vision and an exciting new 
way of telling a story without a set or props. 

Our role is to identify young companies like 
this who are full of talent but don't have the 
experience of the industry to develop their 
work." 

The City and Iris is at Greenwich Theatre on 
March 30. Tel: 020 8858 7755 (1 -6pm, Mon- 
Sat) or visit www.greenwichtheatre.org.uk

WACKY inventors, star- 
gazing scientists and 
historic explorers will 
figure in a new exhibition 
that opens at the Royal 
Observatory, Greenwich, 


at Easter. 

Royal Museums Greenwich 
has commissioned eight British 
‘steampunk’ artists to create works 
inspired by the technical inventions 
that were presented to the Board of 
Longitude between 1714 and 1828. 

The exhibition features both 
fantastical inventions and real historic 
objects - blurring the boundaries 
between art and science, fiction and 
fact. 

Called Longitude Punk’d, it includes 
specially-created pieces by steampunk 
luminaries Robert Rankin, Lady 
Raygun, Herr Doktor, Dr Geof, Emily 
Ladybird, Major Thaddeus Tinker, Lady 
Elsie, Yomi Ayeni and Wyn Griffiths. 

Standing in the Meridian Courtyard 
and opening the door to the alternate 
realities of Longitude Punk’d will 
be ‘The Globe of Dislocation’, all 
that remains from the crash of time- 
travelling airship ‘The Prime Landing’, 
devised to navigate between alternate 
universes. 

Visitors can then step inside the Sir 
Christopher Wren-designed Flamsteed 
House, and discover the captivating 
array of Steampunk curiosities 
displayed throughout its grand, 
historic surroundings as guided by 
The Commodore - a character created 
by renowned novelist Robert Rankin. 
On display will be opulent and ornate 
apparel inspired by the night sky 
including gowns, headdresses, and a re- 
imagining of Nevil Maskelyne’s noted 
silk observing suit, and outlandish 
contraptions purporting to solve the 
Longitude problem. 

Steampunk novelist and illustrator 
Robert Rankin said: “For me it is an 
absolute honour to be chosen to exhibit 
my work at the Royal Observatory and 
to exhibit it alongside such artistic 
luminaries as Dr Geof and Herr Doktor, 
whose work I deeply admire.” 

To coincide with Longitude Punk’d,

THE 108-year 
chronology of 
the borough's 
top team may 
not have the 
trophy-laden 
past of some 
of London's 
clubs, but 
Charlton 
Athletic: 

A Pictorial 
History 
(pictured) is a 
compulsive 
read 

nevertheless. 

Crafted by 
local historian and 

Addicks fan David Ramzan, the bookworks 
well as either an introduction to younger 
fans whose memories begin in the modern 
Curbishley era, or older ones, who will be 
particularly interested in the many striking 
images of famous Charlton moments over the 
years. 

All the key moments in the club's history are 
documented, from the very early formative 
years, through to FA Cup success in the 1 950s, 
to the recent ups and downs of League 1 and 
the resurgence under Chris Powell. The most 
important club legends like Sam Bartram and 
Jimmy Seed are celebrated alongside some of 
the more quirky moments in Charlton's rich 
history. Particularly interesting is the chapter 
on the dark days of the exile from the Valley, 
complete with the now infamous notice 
telling fans of the switch to Selhurst Park 
illustrating the section. A detailed look on the 
journey from and back to the Valley is a timely 
reminder to fans about the significance of 
not only the club to the local community, but 
the hard work of so many in ensuring that its 
future could be bright. 

There's enough to keep fans of both Charlton 
and general football interested and is a must 
for diehard supporters. 

Charlton Athletic: A Pictorial History by 
David C. Ramzan is published by 
Amberley and is priced at 
£14.99

BIDDING FOR PROPERTIES 

People on the Housing register are able to bid for all properties, 
regardless of their banding. You must be eligible for the size of 
property and bids will be considered in the following order: 

First Band A, followed by Band B both in priority date order. 

Those in Band C will then be considered in registration date order. 

Please note that there will still be some properties with age 
restrictions so only people of this age group can apply for these. 


BAND 

A is for applicants in unsatisfactory housing, including 
people moving due to demolition and those 
underoccupying their homes. 

B is for applicants the Royal Borough of Greenwich 
must prioritise according to the law, particularly 
homeless people, and others with an urgent need 
to move for medical or welfare reasons. 

C is for all applicants on the housing register, 

including those that are in priority bands A and B.

higher education 

• need to provide care for family members or friends

WORKS at London Bridge 
rail station will affect 
travel plans on Friday to 
Sunday (March 28-30). 

The changes are part of 
the £6.5bn Thameslink 
Programme, which will 
see the rebuild of London 
Bridge station, due for 
completion in 2018. 

Southern services to London 
Bridge will be reduced after 
the morning peak on Friday. 


Over the weekend, no 
Southern or First Capital 
Connect services will 
call at London Bridge. 

On Sunday, Southeastern 
Charing Cross services will be 
diverted to Cannon Street. 

On Monday there will 
be a few changes to 
early morning services. 
• People are advised to check 
www.nationalrail.co.uk/ before 
travelling.

Reggie's quick-fire treble 


REGGIE O’Reilly has continued his blistering 
start to his boxing career with two victories 
to add to his debut win at the end of January. 

The youngest brother of Starting Blocks supported 
Jenna, five-times national boxing champion 



across the age-groups, took a second victory by a 
unanimous verdict and a third just a week later by a 
split verdict. 

“In my second fight I gave the boy a standing 
count in the first round and in the third fight my 
opponent was 2kg heavier than me in weight,” said 
the 11-year-old from Eltham, who is coached by 
Tony Pettit at Nemesis Amateur Boxing Club. 

In the latest fight, he pushed his bigger opponent 
back and wobbled him with a screw shot in the 
first round and his footwork enabled him to throw 
various combinations. 

The Crown Woods College pupil, who has been 
training for six years but only boxing in bouts 
this year, has impressed coaches sufficiently to be 
selected for trips to Ireland for a tournament in July 
and a training camp in Russia in September. 

Displaying a mean jab with his left hand already 
(pictured), he says he is “working on boxing against 
southpaws”. 

Mum Jackie said: “Reggie’s confidence is growing. 
He can’t wait to fight again, and keep training hard 
with his Nemesis coaches who believe in his skill 
and natural ability and heart for the sport.”

and Noah earn

“The club provides me with lots of friends 
and everyone has really supported me. A 
lot of people there are really experienced 
in the sport themselves. They’ve been 
there to help me through my downs and 
my ups.” 

About the race, she said: “I’m obviously 
tired from the rest of the season and I 
knew it was going to be a tough race. 

“I tried to stick with [the winner] and it 
was pretty much a sprint all the way and 
she was just better on the day. I knew I’d 
need to be at my best to beat her.” 

Coach Mark Newell said of Sabrina: “We 
work on elements in training, but she’s 
got what it takes to be an outstanding 
athlete. It’s 10 per cent of what I do and 90 
per cent what she does. She’s got natural 
ability.” 

He added of Noah: “It was the best cross- 
country performance he has put together. 
Nobody expected him to finish second but 
he’s been working towards coming in the 
top eight for the whole season.” 

Both will be looking to perform well 
on the track this summer, where they 
have a rival for glory. Vera, like Sabrina 
supported by Greenwich Starting Blocks 
which was set up to help promising 
athletes, won her national title in a 
personal best 7.76 seconds. Last season, 
she won English Schools 100m bronze.

Harriers' double delight

Club's joy at pair's silver medals 


by Ian Lamont 


CAMBRIDGE Harriers were 
celebrating a double success 
after two runners finished second 
in the England Schools Cross 
Country Championships. 

Training partners Sabrina Sinha 
and Noah Armitage- 
Hookes, both 14, were 
runners-up in their 
age-groups, earning 
international vests 
to run for England 
in the Home Nations 
international at 
Bolton last weekend. 

Their success came 
a week after Vera 
Chinedu also put the 
Sutcliffe Park-based 
club on the map by 
winning the England 
Championships U15 
indoor 60m title. 

Sabrina’s success 
was on the cards after clinching the 
England National Cross Country 
Championships a few weeks earlier. 

But the age-group alignments 
differed for this event, and the 
Blackheath teenager found herself up 
against athletes at least a year older 
in the U17 race, including the winner. 
However, Sabrina was only beaten by 


12 seconds. 

Noah’s silver was less expected, but 
was clearly his focus. The Greenwich 
youngster had shunned the chance to 
team up with his twin brother Alfie 
for Dulwich College in a national 
rowing championships at Dorney 
Lake the day before, to concentrate 
on cross-country. 

Alfie took silver in 
the single skulls but 
finished 63rd in the 
cross-country race. 

Their dad, Luke, 
said: “Noah ran the 
race of his life. He’s 
really been working 
all year on this. 

“He was 30th last 
year and it’s been 
his target to get into 
the top eight, to get 
an international 
vest, and he finished 
second which was 
absolutely amazing.” 
Noah has been in the 
same training group as Sabrina for 
four years. 

Sabrina said: “I’m really happy 
about Noah’s success because it’s 
great for the club.” 

Describing how the Harriers have 
helped her, Sabrina added: “The club
