A selection of the entries.  Displayed at the Eltham Centre

Towards the end of this year’s summer term, the children of St. Thomas More Catholic Primary School and Gordon Primary School took part in a competition to design posters for the Progress Estate’s centenary events.   The winning entries are on display until Saturday, 30th August at the Eltham Centre entrance to Eltham Library.    Rita Billinghurst, Chair of the Progress Residents Association, said ‘We are delighted with the quality and quantity of the winning designs which will be used to publicise our 2015 celebrations’.

Note for Editors:

Originally named the Well Hall Estate, The Progress Estate was built in 1915 to provide housing for the many additional workers the Woolwich Arsenal needed to manufacture the armaments required by the services during the First World War.   Conservation Area status was granted in 1975, in recognition of its unique architectural character.
