We are a small community group with strong roots in Deptford. Our backgrounds are culturally diverse. We are experienced in community development, business, charity work, management, academia and journalism.
We are passionate, enthusiastic and working to reveal the forgotten history of Deptford. Though only a stone’s throw from Royal Greenwich, our history is a very different one. The splendours of Royal Greenwich exist because Deptford exists and our more dramatic story, though obscured, deserves at least as much attention as those of kings, queens, famous diarists and fabulously wealthy merchants.
Our history in Deptford needs to be brought to light.
