ISLINGTON GIVING WALK, 27 OCTOBER

- looking at the grotty past of St Luke's

With twilight adding to the atmosphere, fellow CIGA guide Jen Pedler and I took a great group of people from Islington Giving (an independent group of individuals and organisations working to tackle poverty and inequality in Islington - more on them here) on a walk around the parish of St Luke's. Not exactly a Hallowe'en walk but there was grimness, drownings, debt and graveyards aplenty - and at the end they very kindly invited us 'umble guides to join them in the Honourable Artillery Company's HQ for a bite to eat and a visit to the museum. Nice people doing good stuff - what's not to like?
