passing time

Whilst staying indoors its good to find something to do. Of course most of us have TV channels to keep entertained.

For some pro-active ideas there are games available online free of charge.

There is Scrabble Go or Words with Friends 2 or Microsoft makes games available via the Microsoft Game Room like the Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

Anybody registered with Facebook can make use of many games via the platform online. You can play most games with mobile phones, tablets, Apps or home computers and laptops.

Whilst our libarries are closed there is the option of reading virtual books using Apps like Kindle. If you are a member of Amazon you can get many free books to download.  Amazon as well asArgos still do home deliveries for items, you no longer can purchase in the shops.

Unfortunately, at the time of posting, there are no food delivery slots available anywhere. But we have the local shops, which are in walking distance.

If you want help with computer related issues on how to get onto games, I am willing to give phone advice. Please contact me via the contact page.

You can go for walks in the park but should keep 2 meters away from the nearest other person.

Leisure facilities in Tower Hamlets

Leisure facilities in Tower Hamlets have seen an enormous increase of use during the last 7 years. From 2002 – 2019 visits jumped from 80K to 2.2 Million.

A great statistic to see, published by Tower Hamlets council with their OS Leisure Facilitiesv4 papers to be discussed by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 25. November 2019.

Yet the council wants to invest only 1.9 Million to maintain and improve 7 Leisure centres. That is simply not enough in my view. Anyone interested can go to the Overiew and Scrutiny Committee meeting on Monday 25. Nov at the Town Hall and make their views known. Please also lobby Councillor ahead of Monday’s meeting. Our local Councillor Eve McQuillan is due to attend that meeting.

I have lobbied the Council officers to consider increasing that spending and to consider a greater involvement in swimming for secondary school pupils because there is little happening in Tower Hamlets at the moment.

But of course our leisure facilities are very important for all of us and wear and tear is an important factor together with modernisation and up-keep. Please help improve our leisure facilities.
