“Back to the future – the history of housing crises” with Peter Slinger

In the last of our Spring Tuesdays Till Two “Church of Ideas” talks at 1pm on 15th March, architect Peter Slinger will be taking a look at what the housing crises of the past have to teach us today. The present housing crisis is not the first one to hit the UK. The talk will look at previous crises, their causes, effects and solutions and discuss the potential for dealing with them in the future.fb_event_button

As usual the church café will be open from noon, and will be selling a range of hot drinks, and home made cakes, scones, and other baked goodies with all profits from the café going to The Green Backyard. The talk will begin at 1pm and will be followed by an opportunity for discussion and questions. Admission to the talk is free, but a donation to help cover costs will be appreciated. The suggested donation is £3.
