Community Facilities

  • The Tench Street football pitches in Wapping Gardens had been closed off to the community in the evenings. Cllr Emma Jones got a key for a local sports coach so that young people can now play team sports here in the evenings.
  • Why have the Mayor and Tower Hamlets stalled when it comes the Turk’s Head application to designate Wapping Green a protected village green? That is what Wapping campaigner, Julia Dockerill, asked at the latest full council meeting at the Town Hall.
  • Your local Conservatives supported Wapping High School in their bid to secure new dedicated premises on Commercial Road. Independent councillors voted against it. Here in Wapping we need more and better local schools for our children.
  • Cllr Emma Jones has helped countless Wapping residents over her eight years as our local representative on everything from housing and planning to recycling and road repairs. She holds fortnightly surgeries in the ward, as well as regular street surgeries and one-to-one meetings so that Wapping residents have access to a responsive representative.
