Did you know that the campaign for the Old Age Pension started in Walworth over 100 years ago?

SPAG in partnership with InSpire, was awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery in 2008 for the 5 Bob project to celebrate the pensions campaign, its centenary and Walworth's forgotten history.

The project provided and exciting variety of art, talks, visits and theater and music workshops which involved older people and children in Southwark, culminating in a grand finale performance and a parade through the streets of Walworth. It also developed a website full of slide shows, cartoons, kids' stuff, videos of events and a little bit of history.
