Tall Ships Festival in Woolwich


The Tall Ships Festival in Woolwich provided a great opportunity for The Lenox Project to spread the word about our plans to build a replica ship in Deptford. With thousands of people expected on the Royal Arsenal site, we were able to bring our plans to a new audience and as usual, we were delighted to hear the enthusiasm and excitement of everyone we spoke to.
We had spent some time revising and updating the display boards in the trailer and these were put on show for the first time – we were also delighted that we were able to buy a new ‘all-weather’ gazebo using donations from our supporters. This was a fantastic improvement on the one we have been using – not only did it give us lots of space in which to store our merchandise, but the gazebo was sturdy and waterproof enough to provide shelter during the rainy afternoon and evening, keeping our spirits up during the last few hours of the day.
Thank you to everyone who came along to meet us, those who gave us words of encouragement or offers of help, and who bought merchandise or joined our mailing list. Even the mayor of Greenwich Norman Adams and his deputy Olu Babatola dropped by to hear about the project – don’t be surprised if you see us in Greenwich Time next week!
