Newsletter Archive

MEOTRA has been going since 1974 and has published over 140 newsletters and rising. 

Over 136 of these have now been digitised and these documents illustrate the extensive changes that have occurred over the last half a century to this little pocket of the east end. It is ever-evolving, but common themes raise their head and are voiced by an ever-changing cast of characters. So take a wander around our virtual MEOTRA streets. Keep an eye out for the dog poo, the rat running, the traffic and parking problems, be inspired by spirited locals battling AND WINNING against ill-conceived plans to level the area; but enjoy tales of  children performing and directing  the Lord of the Ring Trilogy over three nights, real east enders rubbing shoulders with EastEnders from the Beeb, steam trains, Fun Days, Carols with illicit mulled wine and some rather weak jokes along the way. 

In 2000 Meotra published Changing Places which gives a sense of place, but above all else a taste of the people. These newsletters too capture the characters who have walked and lived or worked on these fourteen streets of ours over the last half a century or more.

Typically there are three MEOTRA newsletters each year: before the AGM; Summer Fun Day and the Carol Singing.
