Monday March 16: Waterloo Survivor. Stephen Bull lives in Waterloo and has a passion for the techniques of Georgian house building. Now he and his apprentices are using traditional skills and original materials to return a client’s 18th century house in Kennington to how it was built. Gradually, stripped of unsympathetic renovations but discreetly retaining the necessities of a practical family home, the house reveals its history.
Events are normally held on the third Monday evening in the month.
6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library. Light refreshments. Everyone welcome.
No admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.
FUNDRAISING FOR THE FRIENDS OF THE DURNING LIBRARY
After the very successful Table Top Sale on 14 June, where we raised over £250, thanks mainly to Cathy Preece and the Kennington Companions, Cathy has kindly offered to continue selling unwanted books, CDs, DVDs, Blue Rays and Amazon games to help raise funds for us. Please make every effort to support this, either by bringing your donations to the blue bin in the Library or delivering to Cathy direct. Please contact KenningtonCompanions@gmail.com if you wish to do that or have any questions .
DO PLEASE CONTINUE TO DONATE
IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM
After James Taylor’s fascinating talk on 17 November, many will be shocked to learn that government cuts to IWM could mean 80 job losses, curtailing schools visits and – incredibly – dismantling the library.
