London Appreciation Society visit

On Saturday 28th August 2021 we welcomed a visit to St George's by members of the London Appreciation Society.

The London Appreciation Society is a secular, non-political, and non-profit making organisation for adults interested in the past, present, and future of London.  It was founded in 1932 by the late Dr H. L. Bryant Peers. They currently have about 500 members.  Each year a Programme Team arranges between 120 and 150 events for which members may request a booking. These may be

talks about London,
guided walks around London,
visits to places of interest in the London area (including some not normally open to the public),
occasional lunches and social events.

These events are described in the Blue Book, which is printed and circulated to members around May and November each year.

Directly opposite the Barracks in Woolwich, South East London, come and enjoy its beauty and peaceful garden.
