Greenwich Society Plaque
In tree planting year 1973, a tree was planted in a small garden created initially on a bombed site by the society on the corner of Crooms Hill and Burney Street. At the foot of the tree there is a memorial to the first President of the Greenwich Society - the Poet Laureate Cecil Day Lewis.
An offshoot of the Greenwich Society the 'Burney Street Garden Project' made a successful temporary garden on the large bombed area in Central Greenwich, which is now again in use. The Garden Project is commemorated by a carved inscrition on a marble memorial found on the site, by a plate commemorating the donation by the Duke of Edinburgh of an oak tree and a placque in memory of a local milkman - Doug Mullins.
In 2006-7 The Greenwich Society designed and donated a placque of black slate similar to a 'blue placque' in memory of a founder member - Dick Moy - for his work in Greenwich. It is fixed on the building which he restored and from which he operated.
