Burglary in Rosebery House

Recently a flat, shared by several persons has been burgled with all laptops stolen. That is very worrying, especially also that there are now increasingly noisy incidences happening around the back of the house with cars being driven around noisily.

For the purpose of preventing burglaries may I recommend the following, which is especially important in shared dwellings:

  • Always keep the balcony doors locked
  • keep internal rooms individually locked when out
  • ensure that the front door locks are changed each time a resident in a shared flat changes.

To report suspicious and/or disturbing activities keep logs of

  • number of persons
  • descriptions of persons
  • time of occurence
  • car registration numbers
  • take photos if possible but only supply to the police.

Please contact your local Safer Neighbourhood team with all information and use their e-mail to send it through. If you need the e-mail please contact the webmaster here.

You can also report concerns via the MET Police or Bethnal Green section website. 

But if there is an ongoing incident ring 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.

I shall discuss this issue at the next Neighbourhood Safety Panel in the near future as well. The police will need direct reports from all residents who have problems to be able to act upon it.

Local support groups

Yesterday’s meeting of the Parkview Residents Association introduced us to our new community support officer from Tower Hamlets Homes and also the Roman Road Trust.

There is also a Friends of Meath Gardens Support Group, that has a page on Facebook. Most of those voluntary organisations rely on support from volunteers.

Much discussion was held around the Chest Hospital development, whereby the new consultation round ends on 28. June 2018.

Concerns were raised that the longer the site stays undeveloped the more it falls into decay and that is not good for our neighbourhood. Residents can make a case for or against support of the new housing development from Crest Nicholson on the current Tower Hamlets Planning Application website.

There are many submissions on this development including

Please look at the building plans and consider the full effects of the site staying vacant for a prolonged period of time. It cannot support our community if the site stays vacant for years.

Living plastic free workshop

Wednesday 23rd May 2018

Talk & workshop at 7.30pm at the Glasshouse Community Centre

LIVING PLASTIC-FREE: HOW TO SAVE MONEY AND SAVE THE PLANET

You sort your recycling. You take your reusable bag when you go shopping. You want to do more, but you just don’t know what, or how, and you don’t have the time to research everything you could be doing. In this fun, friendly workshop Lizzy will share with you some of the tips and resources she has discovered from reducing her non-recyclable waste over the last two years. You will develop awareness of your own habits and feel more confident making more environmentally-friendly choices every day. And along the way we’ll bust some myths and discover how being green can even be cheaper and more convenient.
