Fanfare opening for 
new John Roan school 


by Dick Townsend-Smith 


FAMOUS former pupils of 
John Roan school joined 
current students and staff 
for the official opening of 
the newly-rebuilt school in 
Greenwich last week. 

They included comedian 
Arthur Smith, and broadcasters 
Steve Rider and Asad Ahmad 
— all ‘old boys’ at the school - 
plus former Education Minister, 
Baroness Estelle Morris, and 
local MP Nick Raynsford. 

Also present for the ribbon- 
cutting ceremony last Monday 
(November 3) was 87-year-old 
Alan Weir, who joined The John 
Roan as a boy in 1937, Hilary 
Haslan, the Chair of The Old 
Roan Association, and the 
Mayor of Royal Greenwich, Cllr 
Mick Hayes. 

The school was founded in 
1677 and is one of the oldest 
state schools in the country. The 
event marked the opening of 
both the brand new, state-of-the- 
art building at Westcombe Park 
and the redeveloped site at Maze 
Hill. 



MAKING TIME: cutting the ribbons for 
the time capsule are Hilary Haslan, Steve 
Rider, Alan Weir and Asad Ahmad 


The new building includes a 
purpose-built base for years 9, 10 
and 11, with a spacious entrance 
atrium and stepped seating for 
performances plus a new sports 
block and drama studio. 

On the redeveloped Maze 
Hill site the original Grade II- 
listed 1928 building has been 
sensitively restored. Both sites 
are equipped with wireless 
technology and the school is 
fully-networked for computer- 
aided learning on PCs and

Council's McDonalds 
refusal was overturned 


WHEN most councils 
in England are trying to 
improve the health of their 
young people, does it not 
send the opposite message 
when the Royal Borough of 
Greenwich grants planning 
permission for a new 
McDonalds within a stone’s 
throw of two schools? The 
McDonalds being built 
near Warspite Rd, Charlton 
is sure to attract pupils, 
teachers and parents who 
go to Windrush Primary 
School and the technology 
college, thereby increasing 
the amount of unhealthy 
food available and 
contributing to expanding 
waistlines and local NHS 
deficits. Was this even 
considered by the borough 
and what on earth could 
have justified its approval? 
What did McDonalds do to 
convince planners this was 
a good idea? Good for the 
borough is not necessarily 


good for its residents in 
this case. 

Rob Smithson, Woolwich 

• A spokesperson for the 
council said: "Regrettably 
the government's planning 
inspectorate decided to 
overturn the council's decision 
to refuse planning permission 
for this development. 

Planning permission was sought 
for a McDonalds restaurant 
with a drive thru at the junction 
of Ruston Road and Woolwich 
Church Street in 201 2. 

The council refused planning 
permission in 201 3 as the 
development did not comply 
with the adopted planning 
policies. Where planning 
permission is refused national 
planning legislation allows 
applicants to lodge an appeal 
to the Planning Inspectorate 
and in this instance it decided to 
overturn the council's decision 
and to allow the development 
to proceed." 


MY daughter Sofia was inspired 
by the Halloween celebration in 
Greenwich Market and wrote this 
poem about the Green Witch who 
lived in Greenwich. 

We've lived in Greenwich for years 
and Sofia is in Year 3 at Millennium 
Primary School. 

Erana Andrukh, West Greenwich 

"Green Witch and the Golden Boot" 

There was a Green Witch 
Who lived in Greenwich. 

She had two cats 
Who had two toy rats. 

One cat was called Matt 
And the other one Satt. 

They went to the park 
And found a giant mark! 

The mark had a map 
That they had to unwrap. 

They followed the route 
And discovered a golden boot! 
Green Witch put it on 
And everything went wrong: 

The cat lost their rats 
And they hid under the mats. 

The witch's hat was very old 
But now it turned gold. 

And a bird has appeared 
That she really liked to hold. 

The witch called her cats 


The witch of 
Greenwich 


SPOOKTACULAR:local children at the 
market's Halloween event PicSamWarr 

But she saw only two bats. 

There was a fly too 
That said good-bye to you! 


• A spokesperson for Greenwich 
Market said: "Our Halloween 
day was a fun filled freaky day - 
as always the traders excelled 
themselves in their outfits and 
everyone had a great time. We 
are glad to hear that Sofia was 
inspired to write a poem about her 
experience."

Power of the poppy 


PAYING TRIBUTE: pupils at 
Alexander McLeod primary 
school with their own 
version of the Tower of 
London poppy field 




THESE children at Alexander McLeod 
Primary School at Abbey Wood have made 
their own version of the ceramic poppy field 
at the Tower of London which marks the 
centenary of the First World War. 

Pupils made a total of 620 poppies out of 
hardened clay, and then painted them red. 
They were then 'planted'together on the 


school field. Headteacher Andrew Hook 
said:"We did this because we are having a 
Remembrance service in the school this week, 
with members of Abbey Wood Royal British 
Legion and older residents taking part. We 
want the children to realise and understand 
what Remembrance Day is all about, and the 
poppies are a way of doing that." 


Representatives from the royal borough 
including the Mayor Cllr Mick Hayes, council 
leader Denise Hyland, opposition leader 
Spencer Drury and the Deputy Lieutenant 
Pieter van der Merwe were due to attend a 
series of remembrance services across the 
borough over the weekend. 

See picture coverage in next week's GT. 


• FOLLOWING our feature 
'Remembering our fallen' in last week's 
edition of Greenwich Time, we would like 
to point out that the guns of the First 
World War fell silent 96 years ago, in 1 91 8, 
and not 100 years ago, as reported. 

We would like to apologise for our error. 


Facelift for historic school 



From page 1 

Sixth-former Megan 
Armson is one of 350 post-16 
students at the 1,400-pupil 
school and said: “The 
facilities for A-levels are 
really good. I play the flute, 
saxophone and piano and 
I sing, and I can use the 
recording studio facilities.” 

Head boy Tobias Warwick- 
Insoll said: “It’s a very good 
school, with a lot more 
space and openness.” And 
head girl Bethan Francis 
said: “The new sports hall is 
great. It has a new gym and 
a full-sized basketball court. 
It means we can have other 
schools in because we have 
more facilities now.” 

Headteacher Des Malone 
said: “This is a landmark 
moment for The John Roan 
which formally opens our 
outstanding buildings fit 
for 21st century learning. 
We are all immensely proud 
to be part of the continuing 
history of our very special 
school.” And Patrick 
Cooper, chair of governors, 
said: “We’re delighted to 
know that our pupils will be 
benefitting from the most 
modern of educational 
facilities.” 

Cllr Denise Hyland, leader 
of the council, said: “These 
superb new facilities show 
what can be achieved 
through a school working 
in partnership with the 


STATE OF THE ART: above pupils make 
use of a computer suite while, right,

Bethan Francis and prefect Megan 
McIntosh 

local authority and the local 
community to expand and 
modernise the facilities 
on offer to its pupils. The 
John Roan’s strengths 
include its excellent links 
with the local community, 
and the opportunity for 
the community to use the 
school’s impressive new 
facilities for sport and 
performing arts will serve 
to strengthen these links 
still further.” 

• A time capsule was locked 
into place in the foyer of the 
school's new Westcombe Park 
building. 

It contains a school tie, a 



copy of John Roan's will, 
photographs and recordings 
of school events, pupils 
and staff, and music and 
fashion from 201 4 chosen 
by the students. It will be 
opened on the school's 400th 
anniversary in 2077.

London Living Wage tops poll of young people 


PAYING everyone at least the Living Wage will be 
discussed in the House of Commons by the UK Youth 
Parliament on Friday (November 1 4), having topped 
national and Greenwich polls of issues which most 
concern people aged 1 1 to 1 8 years old. 

The debate comes a week after a rise in the London Living 
Wage, to which the royal borough is firmly committed. 
During national Living Wage Week, it was announced that 
the London Living Wage would go up from £8.80 to £9.1 5. 
The borough is an accredited employer with the London 
Living Wage Foundation and pays its employees and staff 
employed through employment agencies the London 
Living Wage. It received this accreditation in October 201 3 
and part of the commitment involves encouraging the 
council's contractors to also pay the London Living Wage. 
Living Wage campaigners say paying the enhanced rate, 
above minimum wage, is good for businesses, good for 


staff and their families and good for society. 

Accredited employers receive guidance of how to 
implement the Living Wage among other benefits. 

The poll of royal borough youngsters was run by 
Greenwich Young People's Council, in partnership with 
the Children's Society, to find the top five issues to be 
discussed at the UK Youth Parliament. 

Just over 3,300 young people cast their votes locally 
and the topic topped both the local poll and the national 
one, meaning royal borough teenagers Kim Emenike and 
Rasheeda Page-Muir will debate the issue in the House of 
Commons with other Members of the Youth Parliament 
from across the country. 

Other topics include reinstating English and Maths exam 
resits, everyone having the chance to do work experience, 
lowering the voting age to 1 6 and improving mental 
health services with youngsters' help.

HEALTHY: Plenty of people took advice during the month-long anti-smoking campaign 

4,500 sought 
advice during 
Stoptober 


by Dick Townsend-Smith 


ABOUT 4,500 smokers in 
the royal borough were 
encouraged by healthy 
living staff to kick the habit 
during the ‘Stoptober’ 
campaign to help people 
stop smoking. 

Teams from the council, 
supported by Charlton 
Athletic Community Trust, 
staffed roadshows to meet 
smokers face-to-face and 
support them in giving up. 

More people than ever before 
joined the national stop 
smoking event Stoptober this 
year, with more than 250,000 
smokers in England and 
Wales not smoking during the 
month. 

People taking part who went 
smoke-free for 28 days are five 
times more likely not to start 
again. Over four weeks of 
the campaign in Greenwich, 
health staff spoke to 2,400 
men and 2,100 women about 


giving up. The success of 
the campaign locally will be 
known in February, when 
data from family doctors and 
chemists has been assessed. 

Cllr Maureen O ’Mara, cabinet 
member for community 
wellbeing and public health, 
said: “Evidence shows the 
clear health benefits that 
giving up smoking provides, 
and that by quitting smoking, 
people can make a huge 
difference to their long-term 
wellbeing. 

“The success of mass-quit 
attempts, such as Stoptober, 
shows that a tobacco-free 
generation is now within sight 
as more smokers stub out 
their cigarettes as part of a 
conscious decision to improve 
their health.” 

• It's not too late to sign up for 
support in quitting: visit www. 
greenwichstopsmoking.org. 
uk, call 0800 587 5833, or text 
'QUIT' to 60060. 


Keeping dogs controlled 


DOG owners are reminded to keep 
their dogs on leads in parks and 
open spaces controlled by the royal 
borough. 

To remind people, signs are 
in place to explain where Dog 
Control Orders are in operation. 
These include council -run parks, 
children's playgrounds, roads, paths 
and housing estates. The council 
also paints pavement stencils to 
warn dog owners - particularly 
where it receives complaints about 
dog fouling. Residents who witness 
a breach of Dog Control Orders 
or encounter a dog behaving 
behaving aggressively, can report it 
to the Greenwich dog control team 
at 020 8921 4661 or email contact- 
centre@royalgreenwich.gov.uk 

The council regularly hosts advice 
sessions for dog owners to remind 


them about their responsibilities 
as dog owners and to explain how 
dog control orders work. The orders 
say owners should clean up after 
their dogs, not have more than four 
dogs under their control and keep 
them on a lead unless in one of the 
borogh's dog friendly parks and 
opens spaces - a full list of areas 
where dogs are allowed off lead is 
available at www.royalgreenwich. 
gov.uk/dogcontrol 
Cllr Jackie Smith, cabinet 
member for community safety and 
environment, said: "The majority 
of dog owners are responsible 
but the royal borough introduced 
Dog Control Orders in an effort to 
tackle anti-social behaviour caused 
by irresponsible dog owners and 
reduce incidents and accidents 
involving dogs."

RIGHT CARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE: Cllr David Gardner, royal borough cabinet member for health and social care, local GP Dr Ellen Wright, Langley Gifford, assistant director for 
commissioning at Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group, and Cllr Denise Hyland, the council leader, flank a yellow man 

'Yellow men' steer residents away from A&E 


by Dan Stephens 

WOOLWICH’S General Gordon 
Square had some unusual visitors 
last Tuesday (November 4). 

A family of seven-foot tall ‘Yellow Men’ 
were on show as part of ‘A&E won’t kiss it 
better’, a campaign by the NHS to inform 
people about the alternatives to visiting 
a hospital’s accident and emergency 
department this winter. 

Cllr Denise Hyland, leader of the royal 
borough, and Cllr David Gardner, cabinet 
member for health and social care, were in 
attendance to back the campaign, which 
is run by the NHS Greenwich Clinical 
Commissioning Group (CCG). 

There are a range of NHS services 
available in the royal borough in place 
to help residents with medical illness 
and injuries that are not an emergency 
- including pharmacies, GPs surgeries, 
walk-in centres and urgent care centres. 


The campaign brings local people a 
wealth of useful information about the 
kind of treatment options at these NHS 
services and aims to take pressure off the 
borough’s A&E services by encouraging 
them to look for alternatives in non- 
emergency situations. 

There is also plenty of advice about self- 
care and the steps you can take this winter 
to stay warm and safe. 

The campaign also stresses the 
importance of people looking after 
themselves during the colder winter 
months, by staying warm and comfortable 
and ensuring general health is 
maintained. 

Suggestions include stocking up a 
medicine cabinet at home with items 
such as Paracetamol, Asprin (not for 
under 16 years), anti-diarrhoea medicine, 
rehydration mixture, indigestion mixture, 
plasters and a thermometer. 

In an emergency you should always call 
999 but in a non-emergency out of hours, 


when your GP is closed and you require 
medical advice, you can call the NHS on 
111 for assistance. 

Cllr Gardner told GT: “The royal borough 
of Greenwich has an excellent network 
of GPs and pharmacists and out-of-hours 
care. There is no need to go to A&E with 
a cold or cough - always visit your GP for 
minor illness and injury. 

“This means our Queen Elizabeth 
Hospital can continue to provide excellent 
service to those in need of emergency 
care.” 

Dr Ellen Wright, GP at Vanbrugh Hill 
Health Centre and Chair of the Greenwich 
CCG, told GT: “This project is about getting 
the right care for residents, in the right 
place, first time. The information from the 
‘A&E won’t kiss it better’ campaign is a 
great guide to local health provision.”

SIB 


Temporary stalioMipAill 


by Dick Townsend-Smith 


oy 


A TEMPORARY Crossrail station 
has opened at Abbey Wood. The 
move is designed to allow work on a 
permanent new Crossrail station to 
get underway. 

It will stay in daily use until 2017, when 
the new station is due to open. 

The temporary station includes a staffed 
gate, ticket machines and windows, a 
cash point and - for the first time - lifts to 
all platforms. Work will start shortly to 
remove the existing station building. 

The new, two-level station will be built 
above two new dedicated Crossrail tracks 
and those used by North Kent services. 
The design includes: 

• A bright, spacious concourse that 
leads directly onto a wide forecourt 
connecting the station to the Harrow 
Manorway dual carriageway which runs 
above the current station 


• Two new ‘island’ platforms for 
Crossrail and North Kent services 

• Six lifts to help passengers get around 
the station and to provide step-free access 
to every platform. 

Matthew White, Crossrail surface 
director, said: “This is another milestone 
in the delivery of the new, landmark 
station at Abbey Wood. Crossrail will help 
to transform the local area, providing 
a step change in public transport and 
supporting wider regeneration in south- 
east London.” 

The work is being done by Network 
Rail, which is responsible for the design, 
development and delivery of the parts of 
Crossrail that are on the existing network. 

From 2018, a train every five minutes 
during peak time will allow Abbey Wood 
residents to travel right through the 
capital without having to change trains. 

Trips from Abbey Wood to Canary 
Wharf and Bond Street will be cut by 
about 20 minutes and by 40 to Heathrow. 


Train services to alter in December 


RAIL users are being urged to check before 
they travel at the turn of the year and beyond, 
as timetable alternations take place to 
accommodate rebuilding London Bridge as 
part the £6.5billion Thameslink Programme. 
There are some alterations to Southeastern 
services, on lines through the royal borough. 
From December 22-24, morning peak trains to 
Charing Cross will not stop at London Bridge 
between 07.54 and 09.01 . 

From January 1 2, 201 5 some Southeastern 
trains to Charing Cross will not stop at 


London Bridge for 20 months. Southeastern 
services from New Cross, St Johns, Deptford, 
Greenwich, Maze Hill and Westcombe Park 
will no longer have train services to Charing 
Cross or Waterloo East, and will instead 
operate to and from Cannon Street. 

Trains to Plumstead, Woolwich Dockyard, 
Belvedere and Erith will be diverted to and 
from Cannon Street until August 2016.

Have your say 


on the proposal for a new tunnel 
under the Thames at Silvertown 


We’d iike your opinion on a new tunnel at 
Silvertown, which is part of a package of 
proposed river crossings. The new tunnel will: 

• Provide a new road crossing across the Thames 

• Reduce queuing at the Blackwall Tunnel 

• Support the creation of new jobs and homes 

• Create the opportunity for new public transport 
connections 

We’d also like your views on a range of charging 
options that are being proposed for the Blackwall 
and Silvertown Tunnels, once the Silvertown 
Tunnel opens in the early 2020s. This would help 
manage demand and fund the new tunnel.

New chief executive 
for royal borough 


NEW CHIEF EXECUTIVE: John Comber (left) takes over from Mary Ney (right) at 
the Council 


THE royal borough has 
a new chief executive. 

The appointment of John 
Comber was confirmed at 
a meeting of full council 
last week. 

Mr Comber takes on 
the new role after being 
appointed through 

a member-led panel 
and takes up the post 
having previously been 
director of regeneration, 
enterprise and skills 
at the royal borough, 
where he oversaw some 
of the council’s biggest 
regeneration projects and 
drove forward its economic 
growth strategy. 

He’s worked in the royal 
borough for nearly 20 
years and takes over from 
Mary Ney, who retired at 
the end of last month. 

Council leader Denise 
Hyland said: “We’re 

delighted to have John 
at the helm - he is a man 
dedicated to the borough 
who knows Greenwich 
inside out and is extremely 
experienced. 

“I also want to pay 
tribute to our outgoing 
chief executive Mary Ney. 

“Over the past 14 years 


she’s shepherded the 
borough through some 
incredible highlights, 
securing a solid platform 
for growth, hosting major 
events like the London 
2012 Olympic events and 
the Royal Greenwich Tall 
Ships Regatta and has 
worked tirelessly to secure 
the best possible outcomes 
for the people of this 
borough. We wish her all 
the best and I look forward 
very much to working with 
John who I have no doubt 
will put his own stamp on 
the role” 

• The chief executive is the 
most senior officer post in the 
council, providing strategic 


leadership to deliver the 
council's agenda, managing 
the council's staff and 
resources, supporting and 
guiding elected members 
and representing the 
council to achieve the best 
possible value for residents 
by keeping services under 
constant review. 

As chief executive, John 
Comber also assumes the 
roles of the borough's 
returning officer during 
elections, takes the lead 
role as 'Gold' officer in the 
borough's emergency 
planning arrangements, 
also becomes clerk to the 
Eltham Crematorium Joint 
Committee.

Black history no mystery 


by Dan Stephens 


m 


YOUNG people helped to 
showcase the rich cultures 
and traditions of the Black 
community in Britain at 
events and projects staged 
across the borough for Black 
History Month. 

Events took place throughout 
October at schools, community 
organisations, public buildings 
with junior citizens featuring in 
most of them. 

Woolwich Town Hall hosted 
an International Day where 
residents shared their stories 
about where they grew up and 
learned more about the different 
cultures and nationalities in 
the royal borough. There was 
an array of dance, drama and 
musical attractions including 
performances from Flame Lily 
Arts, Cardwell Primary School 
and St Mary Magdalene C of 
E Primary School, and guest 
speakers from countries such as 
Nepal and Africa. 

Key Stage 3 students at 
Eltham Hill School in Eltham 
celebrated by taking part in 
fun and educational activities 
in and out of the classroom. 
Students delivered a Hall of 
Fame assembly, with others 
involved in literacy projects 


All ages celebrate culture and traditions of all nations 



BANGING THE DRUM FOR HISTORY MONTH: tots and parents enjoy a music workshop at 
the Spring field creche, right, Jeyda Montgomery age 2 V 2 and - Atacan Canatar, aged 3, 
have a go 

such as collective story writing. 

Celebrations culminated in 
pupils bringing in traditional 
food to share with classmates. 

Thomas Tallis School in 
Kidbrooke was one of three 
schools in the country to 


contribute to local history 
research projects to an 
exhibition at Goldsmiths 
University early in the month. 
The students conducted oral 
history interviews and their 
work included several short 


films, shown at the university 
on October 2. 


as part of the Making Histories 
project. 

Students also heard from local 
historians, who taught them a 
range of skills, from researching 
and archiving to making 
historical films. 

Last week (Nov 5) students 
attended an event at the Houses 
of Parliament as part of their 
‘Making Histories’ projects. 
They presented their work 
and research directly to policy 
makers and MPs and took part 
in a formal debate. 

Charlton Triangle Homes also 
worked with young members of 
local community to celebrate 
Black History Month, hosting 
an exciting African-themed 
storytelling, music, and dance 
event with arts group Global 
Fusion Musica dn Arts. Held at 
Springfield creche in Springfield 
Grove within the Charlton 
Triangle estate, the event saw 
over 70 local children and 
adults attending. 

Visitors were treated to a 
series of African stories set to 
music told by local musician 
and entertainer Claude 
Depper. Claude also ran an 
African drumming workshop 
and children dressed up in 
traditional wear.

A chance to train 
and qualify as 
classroom support 


NEW apprenticeship 
opportunities are being 
organised for people 
to train as classroom 
assistants. 

They start with a work 
experience programme 
that allows applicants and 
employers to "try before 
they buy". 

The council is inviting 
schools in the borough to 
provide a life-changing 
opportunity to a local 
young person who wants a 
career in education. 

This apprenticeship 
scheme helps train people 
to gain the practical skills 
and qualifications that 
schools need now and in 
the future. 

The apprentices will be 
recruited through an open 
day at GLLaB's offices 
in Calderwood Street, 
Woolwich. They will be 
given a week's induction 
training and an interview 
by the school. 

Roles available include 
teaching assistants, and 
learning support, bilingual 
and foundation stage 
assistants. 

Apprentices will have the 
opportunity to work in 
the school for six weeks 
before beginning the 
apprenticeship, and will 
gain an NVQ in Supporting 
Teaching and Learning 
in Schools through the 
council. Schools will pay 
a training allowance to 
the apprentices. The 
apprenticeship will last for 
about 18 months. 


Andrew Hook, headteacher 
at Alexander McLeod 
Primary School in Abbey 
Wood (pictured) has two 
TA apprentices starting a 
taster session this week. 

He said: "I want to see this 
idea replicated across the 
borough. 

"It will be the first step to 
a career in teaching for 
them, and provide a clear 
pathway. 

"It's also the first step 
towards a teaching degree 
for local young adults, and 
I want to be positive in 
making it happen." 

• The open day for 
apprentices is now being 
planned. Anyone wanting 
to apply should contact 
Simone.Crossley@ 
royalgreenwich.gov.uk 
or call 020 8921 2462 
to register with GLLaB. 
Council apprenticeships 
are open to borough 
residents, with priority 
given to 1 6-24 year olds. 


Joint recruitment 
day for trainee staff 


A recruitment open day for new apprentices was 
due to take place in Woolwich yesterday (Monday, 
November 1 0). Organised by Greenwich Local 
Labour and Business (GLLaB), the council's local 
employment initiative, and GS Plus, the company 
that delivers services such as education and 
hospitality catering and vehicle maintenance 
to the council. The event, at the Old Library in 
Calderwood Street, aimed to promote the 
expansion of GS Plus's apprenticeship 
scheme. Current apprentices were on 
hand to share their experiences 
and answer questions.

recruited, and there are 
plans to take on another 15 
apprentices by the end of the 
year. 

Apprentices can ‘earn 
while they learn’ in a range 
of jobs, in areas such as 
business administration, 
cleaning and environment 
support, housing, health and 
social care, horticulture and 
facilities management. 

The council has also run 
recruitment campaigns for 
specific groups, including 
people leaving care and people 
affected by welfare reforms, 
with its Greenwich Local 
Labour Project (GLLP). More 
than 60 per cent of apprentices 
who successfully complete 


their placements have gone 
on to other opportunities with 
the council. 

Two of the apprentices taken 
on by Cleansweep, Tyrell 
Beckford and Sam Cowcher, 
are among those who have 
been highly praised by 
residents and former Mayor, 
Cllr Barbara Barwick, during 
an estate inspection on Morris 
Walk Estate in Woolwich. 

Nassir Ali, a former finance 
apprentice and now a senior 
apprentice payments officer 
for the royal borough told 
GT: “I was 23 at the time and 
I wasn’t completely sure the 
scheme was for me - however 
as soon as I begun at the royal 
borough I knew it was an 
excellent opportunity. I got a 
massive amount of support 
from all the staff there which 
was very welcome and it gave 
me lots of confidence in the 
role. 

“It turned out to be a great 
opportunity to work hard

Berkeley builds careers in construction 


training to more than 700 young 
adults, through construction 
apprenticeships, its graduate 
scheme, or for those working 
on GNVQ or equivalent 
qualifications. 

Working with the community 
college and GLLaB, the council's 
employment initiative, thegroup 
has developed the Berkeley 
Apprenticeship Scheme. This 
offers career opportunities to 
local young people, helping 
to increase the level of skilled 
workers within the borough. 

Traditionally construction 
apprenticeships have helped 
to recruit, retain and develop 
talented people into a range 
of craft occupations. These 
include painting and decorating, 
bricklaying, plastering, site 
carpentry, electrical engineering 
and plumbing - all skills which 
GLLaB has identified as being in 
demand. 

The scheme is designed to offer 
progression to supervisor and 
management roles, helping to 
provide the industry with a well- 
trained and productive people. 

Cllr Sizwe James, the council's 
cabinet member for business, 
employment and skills, said: "I 
am delighted that the council 
is supporting Berkeley with the 
creation of new apprenticeship 
opportunities in construction. 

"Berkeley is showing real 
leadership in this area and 


strong commitment to 
addressing the growing training 
and apprenticeship deficit that 
exists across the sector. 

"This work will, I hope, go 
some way towards building the 
capacity of the local construction 
workforce, feeding through to 
greater numbers of local people 
benefiting from regeneration 
and growth." 

Greenwich Community 

College has now expanded 
its apprenticeship training. 
The Intermediate (Level 2) 
Apprenticeship takes 18 months 
to complete; the Advanced 
(Level 3) Apprenticeship is 
structured as a three year 
programme. Apprentices will 
be based at Kidbrooke Village's 
specialist Construction Skills 
Centre, where they will receive 
both practical and theoretical 
training as part of the scheme. 

The centre, which opened in 
July this year, is the fourth in 
the borough, and is housed in 
a mobile building which can be 
transferred from site to site. 

• Anyone interested in 
applying for the scheme should 
contact business@gcc.ac.uk 
or call 020 8853 7025. To find 
out more about Thursday's 
launch event, or book a space, 
email Simone Crossley at 
GLLaB at simone.crossley@ 
royalgreenwich.gov.uk or call 
020 8921 2462. 



EXPANDING: Berkeley's new construction apprenticeships will offer on-the-job training 



A growing number of apprenticeships are becoming available in the borough, giving 
people the opportunity to be trained and earn qualifications for a worthwhile career. 
GREENWICH TIME reports on some of the options on offer. 


and achieve a lot. It was 
an excellent platform to 
successfully apply for 
jobs further down the line 
when I had gained that 
experience.” 

Last month saw the latest 
in a series of graduation 
events held by the council 
to celebrate the apprentices’ 
achievements. It was hosted 
by the Mayor who presented 
certificates of achievement 
at the Woolwich Centre 
event. 

Cllr Sizwe James, the 
council’s cabinet member 
for business, employment 
and skills, said: “One of our 
aims is to address the high 
rates of unemployment 
amongst young people 
locally. An apprenticeship 


is an increasingly popular 
option into the world of 

work and the council 

works in partnership 

with a range of training 
providers such as GLLaB 
to develop opportunities 

for apprenticeships within 
the council and with other 
employers in the royal 
borough. 

“The council has also set 
up four specialist skills 
centres to help people get 
the training in the sectors 
where jobs are available.” 

• The council's 
apprenticeship scheme is 
open to borough residents, 
with priority given to 16-24 
year olds. To apply register 
with GLLaB call Simone 
Crossley on 020 8921 2440.

Honk if you love 
a good fairytale 


PRESENTED by the Hulviz Amateur Musical 
Society, this utterly delicious new musical 
pulls off the considerable trick of delighting 
children and winking wickedly at the adults 
simultaneously. 

Honk! Is based on one of the world's 
favourite fairytales, Hans Christian Andersen's 
The Ugly Duckling. It tells the story of 
duckling Ugly, but it soon becomes clear he is 
no ordinary duck! 

Mocked on the farmyard and pursued by 
the ever hungry Cat, Ugly finds himself in all 
manner of predicaments with a battery of 
colourful characters. 

With a tuneful score and witty lyrics, 
by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, it 
confirms the pair as "the biggest hopes 
for the future of the British Musical". Your 
feathers will stand on end wig sheer joy. 

Honk! is on at the Bob Hope Theatre, 
Wythfield Road, Eltham, from Nov 20-22. 

Tickets £11 -£12:50

Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Choice Based Lettings Scheme 


f 


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. 


How do I apply?

SENIOR 

LIVING 

IN ROYAL 
GREENWICH 




Following the successful development of 
Senior Living accommodation at Eltham and 
Kidbrooke in 2014, there will be further new 
developments becoming available in 2015. 
These are Mabel Polley House in Woolwich 
and 22 bungalows and 7 flats on a variety of 
sites around the Royal Borough. 

There is also a development on the Royal 
Arsenal site which is a mixture of properties 
for rent, shared ownership and discounted 
sale with Viridian Housing Association. This 
is part of the on-going work between Royal 


Greenwich and its housing partners to develop 
a wide range of housing options for people 
living in Royal Greenwich and who are aged 
55 and over. Priority for the rented homes 
will be given to Royal Borough tenants who 
are living in family sized housing and want to 
downsize into smaller homes, or tenants who 
are being rehoused as part of the regeneration 
proposals for the Woolwich area. The first of 
these will be available from March 2015. 

The shared ownership homes being developed 
in Woolwich will include a range of I and 2 


bedroom apartments for shared ownership, 
for which Royal Borough tenants and residents 
will be given priority. 

If you are interested in finding out more about 
these opportunities please come along to our 
drop in session on Thursday November 27 
between 1 0.00am and 2.00 pm at: 

The Public Hall, Town Hall, Wellington Street, 
Woolwich SE 1 8 6PW. 

Royal Borough officers will be available to 
assist you with any questions.

Let's get competitive! 


TENNIS players with disabilities 
enjoyed the first of many 
tournament days, at Hornfair 
Park, thanks to the latest South 
London Special League (SLSL) 
project. 

The designed charity of the 
Mayor of the royal borough Cllr 
Mick Hayes who attended the 
event, it is part of the league’s 
One Game One Love series. 

Coaches on the day Paul James and 
John Hoskins already run sessions 
for players with disabilities 
through SLSL at Hornfair Park 
and Shooters Hill. 

Sharon Brokenshire, who 
runs SLSL, said: “Tennis is a 
very social game, but with this 
project we want to concentrate on 
getting players to a level where 
they can compete - we want to 
make it both fun and competitive. 

“This was the first day of 
competition we have had,” said 
Sharon, who added that the event 
combined with a celebration of 
Halloween. 

“We will do competitions on a 
regular basis - it will be the ethos 
of our tennis that we want people 
to compete,” added Sharon. 

The tournament featured people 
aged 16 and over and the project 
has been funded by the royal 



TENNIS TUITION: The royal borough Mayor, Cllr Mick Hayes, compares his skills with participants 


borough as well as Sportivate, a 
Lottery -funded project which aims 
to get more people into activity. 

The aim, said Sharon, is to form 
a club atmosphere among the 
tennis players, where they can 
spend some time practising but 
much of the time competing. 

SLSL also runs wheelchair 
tennis sessions at Crown Woods 
as well as sessions for juniors 
and adults with disabilities at the 
Waterfront and Hornfair Park, 


Charlton, at different times. 

Meanwhile, the charity is to 
expand the range of its sports 
by using its Shooters Hill tennis 
sessions for cricket in the run up 
to Christmas. 

This is to prepare players for 
events next summer. 

• For more information about 
the tennis sessions, or the South 
London Special League, visit

020 83198111. 



ROYAL WELCOME: The Duke of Edinburgh (centre, left) presented Phoebe Franklin (fourth 
in from the right) and the Kent Women's Cricket Squad with the county championship 


Phoebe collects 
cup from royalty 


PHOEBE FRANKLIN collected 
her latest accolade this year 
from the Duke of Edinburgh, 
Prince Philip. 

The talented cricketer, 16, 
from Eltham, has enjoyed a 
very successful year, including 
being called into the England 
national training camp. 

She also won the women’s 
county championship in her 
age-group playing for Kent. 

The girls were invited to 
Buckingham Palace where 
they were presented with 


the cup, as well as the Lords 
Taverner’s Trophy from the 
Duke of Edinburgh, Prince 
Philip, personally. 

Phoebe is supported by the 
Greenwich Starting Blocks 
Trust, which helps local 
talented athletes. 

She said: “The money I have 
received has helped me to buy 
equipment, because it can be 
quite expensive. 

“It helps me to train and play 
and just make sure I have the 
right things.”

THE dedication of young sports people 
was summed up this week by one 
Greenwich Starting Blocks athlete 
squeezing in training before attending 
the charity’s annual fundraising 
dinner. 

That was after dashing back from 
Northampton, where she had competed in a 
swimming gala for her school. 

And Sabrina Sinha’s all-conquering year - 
in cross-country and on the athletics track 
so far - has not finished yet. 

She will compete in the British Biathlon 
Championships in the next few days, so 


needed to fit in a running session with 
Cambridge Harriers last Thursday, having 
already competed for Greenwich Royals 
Swimming Club earlier in the week. 

The 15-year-old nipped from training at 
Sutcliffe Park back to Blackheath to get 
ready for the Starting Blocks dinner at the 
02’s super club, where she was able to tell 
250 diners how the support of the charity 
had helped her. 

Sabrina, who receives a grant and free 
membership to sports centres run by 
Greenwich Leisure Limited, said: “The 
support of Starting Blocks has helped me 
immensely as I have to do so much training. 

“The highlight of my year so far was 
probably winning the English Schools 
1,500m. I worked so hard for that and it was 


one of the hardest races I’ve ever done and 
winning was an amazing feeling.” 

The dinner was attended by more than 250 
people and raised thousands of pounds for 
the charity which has helped the likes of Zoe 
Smith, who became Commonwealth Games 
weightlifting gold medallist this summer, 
and judo Olympic silver medallist Gemma 
Gibbons. 

The dinner was attended by Zoe’s sister 
Yana, who won London Youth Games gold 
this year, and New Eltham’s Jonathan £ JJ’ 
Webb, who has become a full-time fencer in 
his gap year as he focuses on the under-20s 
Commonwealth Games next year. 

During the evening, athletes were 
interviewed by Jacquie Beltrao, the 
Olympian and Sky Sports presenter, before 


Barry Hearn shared his vast experience in 
promoting sport. 

Peter Bundey, chair of Greenwich Starting 
Blocks, said: “Our organisation helps young 
aspiring athletes achieve their dreams, 
providing essential funding and training 
throughout their sporting journey. 

“The huge success of our GSB supported 
athletes at the Commonwealth Games 
demonstrates the considerable return on 
investment we achieve. 

“Our aim is to increase this good work and 
support more future medal winners.” 

• Greenwich Starting Blocks supports 
promising athletes from the royal 
borough in Olympic and Paralympic 
sports. For more information visit www.
