Posted on by admin in Wapping | Leave a comment

Tour de FranceWe have just been sent the email below from TfL notifying us that the Highway is going to be shut yet again, this time for the Tour de France. We know that fellow Wapping residents are getting pretty frustrated by the number of events being held that block access to Wapping and modify crucial bus routes. It is something Cllr Emma Jones raised with Tower Hamlets only a few weeks ago.

Local campaigner, Julia Dockerill, has also responded to the Tour de France notice. Her email is also below.

Anyone noticed how many mattresses get dumped on London’s streets every week? Tower Hamlets council asks for £15 to collect bulky items but East London seems to have an endless supply of feckless futons that cost us all money to clear up if dumped anonymously.

In the meantime, if you spot any of the offending articles, take a picture and send it to us with the location and we will get our council team onto it, just like we did with this mattress in Inglefield Square.

Latest Newsletter Coming Out

Posted on by admin in Wapping | Leave a comment

photoWe are currently distributing the latest newsletter from your Conservative Action Team around the ward and you may have seen us out and about at the weekend and weekday evenings.

We hope to distribute a newsletter to every household but this isn’t always easy given the number of gated developments in our area. If you didn’t manage to catch one, please do take a look online using the link below.

Thanks to all the friends and family members who came out to help. It’s always great to get around every corner of the ward and, as always, we’ve reported any problems we have spotted to Tower Hamlets, including dumped rubbish and wobbly paving slabs.

If you would like to help with leaflet distribution in future, even if it’s just within your building, do drop us a line!
