HISTORIC ARCHITECTURE OF PECKHAM 31st MARCH evening
Message from the Peckham Society:
We will be hosting an evening meeting about the architecture of Peckham.
* We will present new research about Peckham’s architectural history and suggest ways in which its best buildings may be preserved and re-used in the future. We will also show how Peckham’s community might enjoy and contribute to the society’s preservation campaigns.
* This event is planned in connection with Southwark Council’s consultation for the new Peckham Area Action Plan. We hope to hold this event in the Old Waiting Room at the Peckham Rye Station which the Peckham Society has been helping restore.
* The Peckham Society has high hopes for our town centre’s redevelopment and conservation – come and join the debate.
* Further details to follow on our website http://www.peckhamsociety.org.uk when the venue is confirmed.
