River and Road

By Carolineld
Just a quick post to highlight two very different London websites.
First, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations will include one event I'm looking forward to: a river pageant along the Thames from Battersea Bridge. Apparently, it will include 'boats spouting geysers'! Sadly it ends at Tower Bridge rather than continuing to Greenwich; more positively, the website includes a very nice timeline of past river pageants which is well worth exploring.
On a very different theme, the new Deptford High Street website looks extremely promising. It already has a selection of articles ranging from local cherry blossom to the new station - and, returning to 2012 celebrations, the Olympic torch route.
