And thats for all people who think that they are above the law including Bankers,MPs and his or her muck. I know i am ranting again sorry !!!.

Welcome back Splinter, Well its spring here in OZ looking forward to  summer, we are off again this week chasing wild flowers with friends with the caravan. Needs some one like you to get them typing, have not seen Dickie on for a while, is he alright. First chance I had to sit at the computer for a while I have even looked at Downham on Google well all the houses I have lived in around Downham & Catford, Even more so with my wife finding out were most of my family I knew, grew up around Downham and Bromley lived, Cannot get over how small the roads are, and the parked cars every were. My old home 84 Keedonwood Rd looks OK but the flat at the bottom of Downham Way look a bit shabby. Has any one tried to put any photos on the site, I tried but with no luck.

Chris, I was just thinking how long it is since we made contact and how I must write to you and check in.

I see it's all been happening for you.  I will be in touch via our email very shortly.

We are making a series of short films about the area around the Excalibur pre-fab estate which is due to be demolished after a residents' ballot. It feels like the country and many younger people have said that too.

best wishes, Jane
Please take a look at work in progress on the new website www.goldsmithscommunityhub.org.uk
It is still in development but we aim to showcase what we have so far to give people an idea of how they can be involved in producing local news and history.

The youth club is making a documentary about their club, which is threatened with closure next March, and the area. The youth club has been in existence since 1939. We are collecting more stories and any contributions you have will be most gratefully received! I will be at the Downham Christmas Fair aka Winter Festival at the Leisure Centre today from 11 am

with very best wishes for the festive season, Jane
