Mr Johnson 1

Posted on October 31, 2010 by Teresa Pearce

Todays Mail on Sunday carries a report about Nick Johnson ex Chief Exec of Bexley Council who left Bexley due to permanent ill health on a recently inflated final salary pension only to start work in Hammersmith weeks later. I attach a link below to the story.

Lobby of parliament Comments Off

Today Christian Aid held a lobby of parliament. Rev Jesse Jackson addressed a packed hall then I had the chance to have a chat about climate change and a nice cup of tea with some members of Belvedere Congregational Church. Nice ladies they were too.

We also had the comprehensive spending review today which I believe heralded the end of social housing as we know it…more on that tomorrow.

Lesnes Abbey Woods 1

Posted on October 16, 2010 by Teresa Pearce

Lesnes Abbey Woods is one of the loveliest places in the area. I often walk my dog there and I look forward to taking my granddaughter there for nature walks when she is a bit older. I am very please to hear that the Big Lottery has awarded a local non-profit organisation the funds to launch a three month project. The organisation called Embrace will use the money to hold free activities at Lesnes Abbey Woods until January 29 next year.

The next event will be a nature photography walk on October 30 from 1pm to 4pm.

Glade clearing, which involves cutting down shrubs and pulling up invasive plants, will take place on November 6 from 1pm to 4pm.

Future activities will include a fungi walk, felling trees and wooden fence making.

For information about other events and to book a place, email john.c@myembrace.org or call 020 7274 9450 or 07984 662996.
