is fast approaching and we are making a poster available to those who cannot accept Trick or Treat and cannot print the poster themselves.
We will be at the Glasshouse on 23. October 2021 between 5 – 7. You can collect printed posters but must tell us in advance if you want to do so. We hope those knocking on doors at Halloween will respect the posters.
Tower Hamlets Homes need your help. Their current contract with Precision Lifts is coming to an end. Please complete this survey so THH can ensure any new contract reflects the needs of our residents. Thank you https://surveymonkey.co.uk/r/thhlifts
Tower Hamlets Homes is responsible for servicing, repairing, and maintaining a total of 327 Passenger Lifts in our medium and high-rise blocks. This does not include maintenance of newly installed lifts that may still be within the warranty period. THH also service, repair and maintain 166 items of disabled lifting equipment for tenants/households with mobility difficulties and install new equipment for tenants upon instruction from Occupational Health.
The current contract for the repairs and maintenance of lifts and disabled lifting equipment (stair-lifts, step-lifts, through-floor lifts, hoists etc) is held by Precision Lifts and will expire in 2022. As part of the re-procurement process, THH would like to hear from you to ensure our new contract reflects the needs of our residents.
We contacted the Mayor of Tower Hamlets last year to ask for more electrical charging points, also for houseboats because our residents suffer from the effects of coal being burned in boats on the canal.
It has now been announced that Tower Hamlets council has approved 400 new Electric vehicle charging points and residents can suggest the installation locations.
Residents can suggest a location for a new EV charging point as part of a consultation launched on Tuesday 5 October.
We assume that is in addition to the built in lamp post charging points.

There will be temporary road closures in Tower Hamlets to allow for the safe movement of visitors from All Points East festival. Closures are permitted from 9pm to midnight from Friday 27 August to Monday 30 August.
• Grove Road between Roman Road and Lauriston Road • Old Ford Rd between St Stephen’s Rd and Bonner Street • Aberavon Rd, Rhondda Grove & Maplin Street will be closed at their junctions with Mile End Rd
Have contacted estate services about access to estate via Old Ford Road.
Anybody with problems to do with ASB or crime over the weekend must dial 999 in case of urgent emergencies.
Anonymous reports can be made directly to THNWA using the link on the side of blog.
Due to the setting of the Garda gate, it is not possible to leave the St. James’s Avenue gate open during the weekend. I would instruct any delivery companies about this. Sorry about this, only just been confirmed to me.
However, I have contacted the organisers of the festival and asked whether deliveries of large items for Mark House and Sydney House would be allowed through via Old Ford Road.
If people suffer financial loss through the closure because delivery access is refused people should make claims for the loss to Tower Hamlets Council.
Apparently this road closure has not appeared on the LYN App under road closures but the sign put up by Allpointseast explains in detail that the road closures take place in the evenings only. Whilst the post on Facebook from Tower Hamlets Council gave the impression the closure lasted for days, hence my misinterpreting the situation.
But, I think such closures should be announced on council notices as well and residents should be informed about this because not even our estates officer knew about this.
Some companies deliver late at night and that can disrupt lives. I would have preferred it if all residents had been informed through their letter box, as we have quite a few residents who do not use email or Internet regularly.
the next quarterly ward panel meeting will take place on
17. August 2021, from 6-7pm at the Glasshouse. If you have any pressing issues to contribute, please contact us and we will put this forward for you.
Due to Coronavirus restrictions on the venue, this is not an open public walk-in meeting and people wishing to attend need to be invited by the organiser, our local Safer Neighbourhoods Team.
We always welcome applications to join the local Ward Panel. Please let us know if you wish to participate.
The ward panel sets policing priorities in the ward of Bethnal Green.
We currently have 8 active Neighbourhood Watch groups in this area. We strongly encourage the creation of even more watch schemes by registering with Ourwatch. Or why not join Parkview Neighbourhood Watch here.
We also have a Facebook based watch group, which is closed and by application only. You can also register for this Facebook group via Ourwatch and then ask to join on Facebook. This is ideal for people who usually work when meetings take place but want to stay in touch.
We also still have the Neighbourhood Watch drop in meeting on 21. August 5-6 and a bigger public meeting on 31. August 2021, which will be attended by the Crime Prevention Officer for Tower Hamlets. Please also see the Neighbourhood Watch event calendar for all events in Tower Hamlets
