Four out of five of the winners of the new Blue Plaques presented by Southwark Council are in SE1.

The only non SE1 Blue Plaque went to playwright Oliver Goldsmith: teachers at the Peckham school bearing his name had galvanised all the children into voting and initiated a huge interest in his works and writing in general.
The Blue Plaques will be soon appearing in their rightful places and nominations have opened for 3 new plaques for 2004 – see www.southwark.gov.uk
