World war one remembered. An illustrated talk followed by a short period of reflection to remember those who died.

Please join us to mark the centenary of the start of WW1

Oonagh Gay, a local badged guideof Crouch End walks, will talk about the impact of the First World War on our local Haringey community:

How did they cope with the food shortages?

How did the women rise to the challenge?

Where were the local German shops?

What happened to the refugees and internees at Alexandra Palace?

Did a bomb fall where you live?

Was there a conscientious objector on your street?

Where were the hospitals that dealt with casualties from the trenches?

How many died when the No. 41 bus ran over nearby pedestrians?

Donations on the door will go to the Royal British Legion
