Odd Corners of London – Jo Livingston Bexley Heath U3A

Our monthly talk on March 6th was given by Jo Livingston a Bexley Heath U3A member on the topic of “Odd Corners of London” . This was such a success that although she brought 60 handouts of follow up information with her there still were not enough!  She has given us permission to put the handout on the website for others to use.  Many thanks to Jo for a very good talk.
