Well, hasn't time flown. It doesn't seem two years ago that the Queen granted royal status to the London Borough of Greenwich but the anniversary of that date passed during the week just gone. If you remember, there were fireworks on three consecutive nights around the borough to mark the occasion - here's a little reminder from the fireworks in Eltham at the Tudor Barn.
It's also two years since the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery arrived Woolwich at their new purpose-built facilities. They've become a familiar sight being exercised on the borough's roads since then. Here they were down at the Old Royal Naval College in February 2012.
While it was "hello" to the King's Troop in February 2012, it will be "goodbye" for another group of soldiers this February. As I mentioned in last week's round up, the Royal Artillery Band are being moved to Wiltshire after calling Woolwich home for 250 years. Their farewell performance is Sunday 9th Feb in General Gordon Square at 1.30pm.
Over on the Greenwich.co.uk forum, on which anyone can start a discussion about local issues, I have posted some details of Cathedral Group's redevelopment proposals for the Alcatel Lucent site in East Greenwich.
There's also an update, via local running trainer Ellie Brown, on what's happening with the tea pavillion in Greenwich Park. Find out here.
Next weekend, look out for free performances at the Queen's House where performance artists Akleriah resurrect the extraordinary rags to riches' life story of Lord Nelson's infamous mistress.
