Call for volunteers: Women Inventors

'The A-Z of Women Inventors' will investigate the journeys of four extraordinary women from East London: Agnes 'Queen of Ices' Marshall (ice cream entrepreneur), Mary Quant (inventor of the miniskirt), Joan Ball (inventor of the first computer dating service), and Phyllis Pearsall (Inventor of the A-Z). We need your help to collect oral histories that will uncover the legacies and impact of these women's inventions.

Please contact Megan@ech.org.uk to be involved.

We charted the changes in access to sport in Newham over the years, especially looking at the Olympic legacy. Check out the interviews we collected, workshops we carried out, and film we made, on our website, here.
