I thought I would start with everyone's favourite subject: the weather. It's certainly been changeable but on the whole, quite mild for the middle of winter and especially so compared to last year. The contrast was shown up quite nicely by this photo I took in the week of the Ranger's House, exactly one year year after I stood in the same spot in my snow boots to take the same photo.
Taking advantage of the mild weather, I met up with Wapping-based photographer Vickie Flores to go and take some photos of wildlife in Greenwich Park and have, as she calls it, a nut party! The squirrels were enjoying the attention and some geese came along too.
Also on the forum, I've posted details of the cruise ships that you can expect to see visiting Greenwich this year.
One of the gems of East Greenwich, of which there are many, is the Pleasaunce and the Friends group for the park are holding their AGM this week. If you ever visit or use the park, you might want to get along. As Sue, who added details of the event to our What's On section, says, "Please don't just sit in and watch Holby City, get out and have your say and meet a few more park users."
The committee are even offering to buy a drink in the Vanbrugh Tavern for all those that attend!
Charton Athletic had their replay with Oxford United in the week and, of course, our match reporter Kevin Nolan was at the Kassam Stadium to report on it. Kevin's match reports are sponsored by Grant Saw Wealth Management, who are based at the Blackheath Standard.
Towards the end of the week, a press release came winging its way from Greenwich Market landlords, Greenwich Hospital. They have submitted a planning application to Greenwich Council for a number of changes at the market, which include a new roof and a new open public space. You can read the full news release from them here and why not have your say, too?
Early on Friday morning, well before sunrise, a frigate from the Germany navy came up the river and is currently alongside HMS Belfast (there's pictures on my other website, all about the Thames). If you're somewhere near the river at Greenwich on Monday morning, some time after half-past ten, you'll see them leaving again.
