Brockley in the Blitz

Brockley was substantially damaged by bombing during the war. Many of today's blocks of flats were built where bombs destroyed the existing houses. Hilly Fields was used for defence purposes and the outlines of wartime buildings' foundations were visible on the parched grass during the dry weeks this summer. If you know anything about how your house or street was affected, air-raid shelters, or anything else about war-time Brockley, bring the information to the meeting.

Followed by AGM, including elections to the committee.

We always need new members on the committee. We have already had offers for a Tree Monitor, and for an LGBT representative to encourage diversity.

If you zoom in you can see Lou senior preventing people using his air raid shelter. Why should he share, if they would rather spend their money on Spam and the latest valved wireless that's their problem

Well done!

Am I the only one who finds the juxtaposition of this hilarious?

An LGBT monitor for the Brockley Spociety...really?

Yes, it does seem a little odd.

"Membership" of BrocSoc is automatically determined by whoever lives in the Conservation Area. If they mean they are trying to increase diversity among their active membership, then given how small that group is, any additional people of any sexual persuasion would improve the diversity of the group, almost by default.

Still, I'd like to read the Brockley Foxes' review of G.A.Y

Maybe it is a box you have to tick to apply for certain funding streams. It's the way things work - you can be a branch of the KKK but if you have an ethnic minorities officer everything is fine.

Talking of AGMs - the Telegraph Hill Centre AGM is on Saturday 13th. 1pm for light refreshments (if Sainsburys come up with the goods), then the necessary voting in of community reps, then a update from Bold Vision on what is happening with the Hill Station and future plans.
