Summerstown182 What’s coming up

SUMMERSTOWN182 AUTUMN PROGRAMME
Geoff Simmons outlines the highlights of Summerstown182’sactivities ahead
More details on the website https://summerstown182.wordpress.com

The autumn is very much all about our great ‘Stripes of Peace’ initiative, in partnership once again with Big Up Films and supported by Wandsworth Borough Council Grant Fund, using materials from Work and Play Scrapstore on the Hazelhurst estate. Workshop details are below if you want to join in making beautiful personalised tributes to be placed on the homes of the Summerstown182 in time for the centenary Remembrance. We hope to have as many relatives as possible join us on Saturday 10th November for a final ‘Walk of Remembrance’. It really will be a deeply moving and momentous occasion, not to be missed. Thanks to everyone who contributed towards the unforgettable Sadie Crawford Plaque Unveiling  event in Fountain Road. If you haven’t seen it, do please have a look at the below account which includes a clip of the breathtaking performance by Adrianna Forbes-Dorant, the first ever Sadie Crawford Scholar!
