31 January (Part 2) - Broken. Link

Blocks As the month draws to a close, here’s a few of January’s photographs which will otherwise go to waste. Arnsberg Way is not the only place where the new blocked road is collapsing prematurely, this picture was taken in Geddes Place.

I was invited to an event at The Link during the month. The Link is a a community centre in Belvedere Road, Thamesmead, built under the high level roundabout where the A2041 flies over the A2016 Eastern Way. It styles itself as “a stunning state of the art community hub aimed at young people” and was built and is funded by Trust Thamesmead which is part of Peabody who took over the Gallions Housing Association a year ago.

It offers meeting rooms and some sporting activities at low cost, generally £1 and use of the net which appeared to be free. The notices and signs to be seen inside feature Greenwich council (Enlarge 1st photo below) more heavily than Bexley which appears to provide no more than a few leaflets.

There was little going on while I was there - my invitation bore the wrong date! - so after a quick look around I sampled the coffee and left. I thought it a little odd that you could do lots of things for pocket money prices but cups of coffee ranged from £1.70 to £2. But then I can remember the national furore when Joe Lyons and Co. raised their coffee price from 5½d to 6d.

The Link latte was quite good though.
