ADVERTISEMENT HACKNEY & KINGSLAND
GAZETTE - MAY 1890
following advertisement was published in the Hackney and Kingsland
Gazette in May 1890 for a property at Shakespeare Villas. Tottenham. I
think you will agree that both the description of the general area and
details of the property itself would satisfy the most exacting scrutiny
by any estate agents operating today.

WEST GREEN MEMORIAL
|WW1 - WEST GREEN MEMORIAL - UPDATE NOVEMBER 2020|
Sadly, due to the Covid 19 Restrictions, there was no formal Remembrance Day ceremony held at the memorial in 2020, although we have subsequently heard that a few people had gathered there to lay wreaths.
It is hoped that a commemoration sevice will be held again in 2021, when once again we can honour the brave men of West Green
