Ashburnham Triangle Carol Singing for Shelter

Resident Janet Stott writes

On December 19th at 6 pm we met at the Ashburnham Arms for chestnuts, mince pies and mulled wine. There was a very good turnout kids and adults alike. The weather looked like rain but everyone cheerfully set out and we sang carols round the Triangle with great gusto. Children rattled collecting boxes  and the residents generously put their money in. We got back to the pub just in time to avoid a downpour. Pepina at the Ash was ready with drinks, shepherds pie and a vegetarian option. An unusually high number squeezed in for the Christmas Quiz that Barbara Reid had prepared.  Pepina provided the food at cost with the rest of the proceeds going to Shelter, there was a small charge to enter the Quiz and the ATA residents made up the rest of the collection which amounted to £347.

January update from the Royal Greenwich Community Champions

Your views on cervical screening in Greenwich

Cervical screening (smear test) is an important test which checks the health of your cervix (the opening to your womb from your vagina). Screening can help prevent cancer and saves lives.  All women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64 are invited to be screened. 

We would like to hear what women and people with a cervix in the borough of Greenwich aged 25 to 64 feel and think about cervical screening to enable us to improve the process and make it easier for people.  💬
