Our forum aims and goals.

  • Give you a space to be heard

  • To listen, laugh and smile!

We hope you will use and enjoy the new forum, as a way to promote all that is positive about living, working and coming from East London (and in my case a bit of Essex!)

  1. I am very interested in Bill Harrison’s comment on 21st April, regarding family connections to Annie Besant, and would like to know more. My wife is the GrGrandaughter of Sarah Chapman, one of the 1888 Matchgirl Strike leaders. Our research and projects have led us to other descendants of both Matchgirls and Annie Besant. Please do get in touch if you are interested in the Matchgirls or any of the characters who supported the Strike.

    In the last few days, the Matchgirls Heritage has gone coast to coast in America. The Seattle Symphony have given the US Premiere of Hannah Kendall’s ‘Spark Catchers’ (a composition drawing on inspiration from the Matchgirls), while some 3000 miles away, in Washington DC, a documentary on the Matchgirls by a young student Maci Hill, has reached the National History Day Finals.

    1. Hi, the forum is a new part of this website. It is an area where people can advertise local business and discuss things that perhaps are linked to East London but not necessarily about history. Hope that makes sense. To comment on this part of the website (the History part) you don’t actually register, you just supply an email address to help prevent spam.

      On the forum section you DO register with a user name and password 🙂

  2. I have tried the new format and am having a problem with clicking the ‘reply’ box – nothing happens so have been unable to join in any conversation. What am I doing wrong?

    1. If you are not signed up to the forum then a login/register screen should open up when you attempt to reply, as guests of the forum can only read and not reply until registered.
