bike shelters meeting / questionnaire

Meeting on Thursday 13th July 2017

from 6:30 – 7:30 pm

at the Glasshouse Community Centre

Please if you can, come and let us have your suggestions for placing bike shelters. I understand there are several shelters available to be installed.

If you cannot attend this meeting please complete the form and state as follows:

Bulk metering

Thames Water notified residents of Rosebery House on Sewardstone Road that they intend to install a bulk water meter that measures supply to the area on the 26. June 2017. Water will be turned off between 9:00 and 17:00 for up to 3 hours.

Thames Water say they install that water meter to measure water leaks in their supply system.

The letter does not mention that their service agents will knock on anybody’s door. So you do not need to let anybody in who says they are checking your water supplies on the day. Any problems need to be reported to 0800 009 3816.

 

THH safety assurance

Following the tragic and shocking events at the Grenfell Tower block, which prompted some residents to post on Facebook how concerned they are for our safety, Tower Hamlets Homes has posted letters of assurance through letter boxes yesterday.

In our block all tenanted flats and houses have wired in fire alarms. Also residents can additionally install personal fire alarms in their rooms.

Free Fire brigade safety checks can be booked by phoning 0800 028 44 28, you will get a free fire alarm installed by the Fire Brigade.

People are advised to NOT have bulky inflammable goods stored on their balconies and keep all public walkways and areas free of rubble.

Caretakers constantly monitor the estates for safety. Here at Rosebery caretakers have moved away external rubbish and recycling bins from the building.
