What a turnout for our project launch! First we walked the trail, pointing out landmarks en route. Everyone chipped in with more information about their experience of growing up or working in the area at different periods.
Then back to Latimer Gardens, where the rest of the audience was gathered – over 45 people squeezed in! We watched our project films, sang our project song, and welcomed Dr Chris Upton who gave a fascinating history of real life in the the back to back houses. Then over tea and cake, there was time to look at archive materials brought by Nikki Thorpe, and to share reminisces.
Thanks to everyone who helped to make the project and launch such a success.
