Keep Your Umbrella Handy!
Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 01/10/2010
October has dawned and with it is the dismal, wet weather. Ho hum. But don’t despair – we’re going to brave (almost) everything the weather can throw at us and bring you warming blogs and notes!
First of all we want to hold up our hands and apologise, we know that many of you are frustrated with machines being out of action. Our engineer called on Thursday and repaired a washing machine that promptly broke down again as soon as he left the building, and he has to get parts for the dryers. He will be back on Monday and we hope that all will be fixed then. There is one machine that requires expensive replacement parts, and we are fundraising for that. (If you know anyone generous who has a spare £3,000, give them our address!). Thank you for being understanding – we really are doing all we can to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible.
Now, on to free events. We could only find two this weekend, but as both are indoors you won’t have to worry that they’re rained off! On Saturday 2nd October, 10.30am – 4.00pm, the Geffrye Museum is holding a family day for children of all ages exploring how London’s past could inspire future weird and wonderful eco homes and gardens. Includes craft activities, storytelling and more. For more information about the Story of London festival click here.
Free admission. Workshop places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis 30 minutes in advance. Children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.
On Sunday 3rd October, the Museum of London is hosting an event where you can meet a former slave from Roman London and hear her stories about her travels throughout the Roman Empire. ‘Meet Martia Martina’ is at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
If you’ve got a Tower Hamlets library or Idea Store card and live in the borough, you can get entry to the Tower of London for just £1! Take your card and a utility bill with you to prove your address. There are lots of links to local places of interest on our web page, so take a look.
Whoops – How could we have forgotten Photomonth began on October 1st! There are over 200 exhibitions and events in the east end during the coming month, check out their website: http://2010.photomonth.org/
