Newsletter Links

Do you have a history-related Event that you would like mentioned on this Website?
If it's about history in the Lewisham area, then I might include it.
But if you just shout it across the room or scribble it illegibly on a piece of paper at an LHSS meeting, then I can't help you. Send me an email, or phone me. And tell me who you are.

Do you want to write for the Newsletter? Have you a story to tell?
Lewisham Local History Society welcomes contributions to the Newsletter. These should be in ‘Word for Windows’ format, or any other format readable by Word on a PC. Photos and illustrations should be separate not embedded, in .jpg format, with a resolution of at least 300 dpi where possible. Names of image files should be all in lower-case.
Complex text formatting is not helpful and may be changed. A full page (A4 size) contains about 570 words; for A5 paper (for example, the ‘Journal’) a full page is about 450 words. If you aren’t sure if your spelling and grammar are good enough for publication, don’t worry. We can (discreetly) improve your contribution, and in some cases we can improve the appearance of photographs. All the files should be attached to an explanatory email and sent to the Web Editor. If you need to find another way to send your work, contact the Web Editor by telephone.
