Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just started to map out the pubs that exist or existed in Woolwich, but need local knowledge and photographs, old and current if you have any.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation. Every email is answered and all information referenced to the supplier.

Woolwich Greyhound pub given licensing green light after gang shooting.

Greyhound 2013

A WOOLWICH pub will continue to serve pints after a gang shooting in the car park prompted a licensing review.

The Greyhound Pubís licensing review came after a man, who was in his 20s, was shot in the chest outside the boozer on July 27 at around 2.42am.

According to a licensing report by police, the victim of the incident was a known gang member in a "well known hotspot for drug dealing".

But the pub has been allowed to continue to trade with conditions such as that extra CCTV is fitted, following a Greenwich Council licensing committee review on August 29.

Other conditions include that at least one bouncer is present on evenings when the pub, in Kingsman Parade, hosts events.

Since the incident, a 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and was bailed until October 1.

A close up video of the scene afterwards shows dozens of officers interspersed within the masses of people as onlookers watch on.

More officers were called in later on and a cordon was implemented while they worked at the scene.

Four "hostile youths" were arrested at the scene for affray .
