Latest Shared Learning Projects

This institution, which was set up by Thomas Sutton (died in Homerton 1611), is looking to research the lives of past Brothers of the Charterhouse. Brothers are a residential community of fit single men over sixty years of age. Originally for those who could supply ‘good testimony and certificate of theire good behaviour and soundness in religion’, those who had been servants to the King ‘either decrepit or old captaynes either at sea or land’ maimed or disabled soldiers, merchants fallen on hard times, those ruined by shipwreck or the calamity.

The Royal Philatelic Society London


RPSL are offering a SLP which will help produce a set of ‘Cinderella stamps’ which reflect the activities and principles of the U3A organisation. These then will be offered to groups to display.

A Cinderella stamp is virtually anything resembling a postage stamp, but not actually used for postage.  They have been around for almost as long as postage stamps and have been created for advertising, promotion, political, propaganda purposes etc.

Meetings will take place fortnightly at the RPSL’s offices in 41 Devonshire Place, Marylebone, London, W1G 6JY on Tuesday afternoons, 1.30 - 3.30, from March 8th. The meeting room is on the first floor and access is via stairs as there are no lifts at present.
Closest tubes: Regent’s Park (Bakerloo), Great Portland Street (District/Circle) and Baker Street (Jubilee).
