Come and join in the fun! Heritage Facebook groups covering Newham

The passion for memories of life in Newham can be easily summed up by the number of Facebook Groups covering history and heritage in the borough locally.

There are 22 we know of, and this is by no means a complete list, writes Colin Grainger.

There are also many others devoted to individual schools, workplaces, associations, groups and much more, many of which featured reflections of the past.

I’d like to praise all the group admins and all those who contribute daily,  sometimes on more than a dozen occasions every day.

For your enjoyment, here are the ones we know about, and their links.
