The next meeting of FUSS will be held from 7.30 pm at 89 Manor Park, SE13 5RA on Wednesday 1 April. As this will be the last meeting before the AGM at which the Chair, Ann Smith, be standing down it would be good to have as many people present as possible for there will be much to discuss.
For the diary, there is also a Craft Fair at the Church of the Good Shepherd on Saturday 25 April and we will circulate a poster under separate cover.
Hither Green Festival – WW1 Music Hall on Tuesday 19 May
This year’s History Talk as part of the Hither Green Festival is planned to be the involvement of Hither Green during World War 1. The challenge is to make it relevant and in context with this Europe-wide and (as the name suggests) World-wide catastrophe. It will be presented as a Music Hall and as part of the planning, Alan Foster and Godfrey Smith are researching local personal family involvement in the Staplehurst Road to Manor Park area during this period – the new War Memorial in The Church of the Good Shepherd comes to mind. Do please contact them (or, Lee Manor Society) if you can help.
With best wishes,
