Appeal on behalf of the Camberwell Housing Society by the Chairman, Owen Deane
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Camberwell Housing Society (with charitable status) was formed in the summer of 1945 to deal with the problem of housing and looking after old people-a problem that was intensified by bomb damage.
Today the Troy Town Flats, which have been erected by the Society, accommodate eighty old people, and voluntary workers help to look after them. There is also a Communal Centre connected to the flats, where hot meals are provided for tenants and for other old people in the neighbourhood.

In 1603 the Crowns of Scotland and England were united, and James VI of Scotland became James I of the new realm. It was in an atmosphere of intrigue and jealousy that young Nigel Olifaunt , Lord Glenvarloch, found himself when he arrived from Scotland to reclaim 40,000 merks lent by his father to the King-money needed to offset a mortgage on the Glenvarloch estates.
One day Olifaunt's servant, Ritchie, was assaulted by a mob of London apprentices, but escaped into the home of Margaret Ramsay , who took an immediate interest in the story he told her of his master's plight. At Margaret's insistence, her godfather George Heriot (the King's Goldsmith and one of the most influential men in London) visited Lord Glenvarloch. Heriot took a liking to the young nobleman and went to Court on his behalf, only to find that the name of Glenvarloch made King James fly into an uncontrollable rage.
