On Sat 6th March we explored the interesting history of the Tennants Strike in Pennants, in 1938 which was led by Robert Rumble, which caused the land settlement which enabled people to buy land previously ‘owned’ by the wealthy Pennant family.
We also visited Pennants with a showcase of photos taken by Clifford Headley.
And we carried on getting to know one another and explain the new NWJS approach

We were delighted to welcome David Triggs, the President of the London based Henry George Foundation, as our guest. This is the organisation that helped the tenants in the Pennants community in Clarendon, Jamaica, to succeed in their challenge to their unreasonable landowner - Lord Penrhyn.
