STILL GOING AHEAD: SGTO Tenants Conference – this Saturday, 9:30am to 5pm

Dear all,

This is a reminder for the SGTO Tenants Conference, taking place at The City of London Academy (Southwark), 240 Lynton Road, SE1 5LA: this Saturday, 9:30am – 5pm

If you wish to attend, please fill in and email back the attached REGISTRATION FORM – email-phone.

In recognition of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, a book of condolence will be available at the venue, which attendees can sign if they wish (this is entirely up to the individual).

I have attached an aerial map of the venue, along with pictures of the car park entrance (also on Lynton Road, to the immediate left of the school). The school is on bus routes P12 and 381, and the 78 Bus stops nearby. It is also walking distance from the Old Kent Road, South Bermondsey Rail Station, and Bermondsey Tube Station. Be mindful that both Roads and public transport are likely to be busy due to the Queen’s lying in state.
