Putney is unique as a centre for rowing, hosting the three Head of the River Races as well as the annual Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race.

Phil Evison, Caroline Whitehead and Lynn Piercy will take a look at the history of Putney's riverside, the Boathouses and the development of rowing - not forgetting the vibrant life of the Embankment today - on Monday 24 February at 7.30pm at the Community Church, Werter Road SW15 2LL.

Putney Society, a registered charity, is an amenity society. Amenity societies are run by volunteers who contribute their time and skills to preserve and enhance their local heritage and community. Societies such as this one are independent, acting entirely for the community benefit and are free of political or commercial influence.

The Putney Society is affiliated to the London Forum of Amenity Societies - passing on to them advice and consultancy documents on matters relating to the local community.
