Parkview Neighbourhood Watch meeting

Residents and those using the area, are cordially invited to attend a meeting of

Parkview Neighbourhood Watch

Saturday, 17. April 2021 at 17:00

venue, the Glasshouse Community Centre, 161 Old Ford Road, London E2 9QB.

The meeting will be attended by

Officers from Bethnal Green Safer Neighbourhood Team from Met Police

Rev. Chris Newman-Day from St. James the Less Church

We may discuss any issues which bother you.

Please let us know in advance if you have any particular concerns.

An NHS Covid QR code will be available for the meeting to scan into the NHS covid app.

New online chat

Whilst Covid-19 is getting worst and the risk levels are rising, Parkview Neighbourhood Watch can now provide those who are already members of the watch group with an online chat and messaging facility.

Also those wanting to join the Parkview Neighbourhood Watch group can join.

However we need to ensure that some verification takes place first. This is to ensure the safety and security of our members.

You must be registered with Ourwatch to get access.

Whilst the Covid 19 cases are rising and meetings are only allowed outside with no more than 6 people, we can now hold meetings via Microsoft Teams. We have an online meetings space. We generally reserve this group for people who are formally registered with Ourwatch as members. This is to provide security of verification, which is generally quite hard for Neighbourhood Watch to achieve, as we have no access to the data any of the providers use.
Our Microsoft Team is accessible here: 
https://teams.microsoft.com/join/xlwshd29bih5
If you click through you will receive this page (see pic on left) prompting you to insert name and email. But as previously said, we prefer if people are registered with Ourwatch first. You can join on this web page. First join here.

Once on the system you can have face to face online meetings with each other or the coordinators to discuss your situation if necessary.  

Our online Teams web team is available to join here: https://teams.microsoft.com/join/xlwshd29bih5 copy and paste this link into your browser and you will receive this web page asking you to enter your name and email address. We will compare your details with people registered with Ourwatch.

There is a particular green conscience with residents suggesting a green belt with fruit trees and shrubs. Any bare spots on the estate can be planted up, please get in touch.

There are still problems remaining from the botched Mayor Works program, please contact our Residents Association with your comments about this.

Recycling rates should be increased and more efforts need to be made to put the correct items into the recycling bins.

Support was pledged to keep Raine’s Foundation school open.

Spring Fayre 2019

buffet-Ros
Parkview Spring Fayre 2019 buffet

What a lovely day we’ve had. There was a lovely buffet, hosted by Ros with many donated dishes from our local community.

I’ve learned how easy it is to make delicious puffed rice at home. The samosas were very spicy and yummy too.

Chillie, sweet peppers and Squash plants

Later in the day two very important visitors from Hackney City Farm, Rita and Ken taught us how to grow sweet peppers, chillies and Squash on our balconies.

Rita explained: “It’s wonderful to watch them grow and then harvest the rewards and be able to eat them at the end of the season.”

Ken from Hackney City Farm in the bee keeper outfit.

Ken, the bee expert taught how bees pollinate plants for a long distance around each hive and it seems plausible to keep bees on estates to help pollinate our plants.

It takes around 600  bees to fill one jar of honey and the bees fly twice around the globe to fill that jar. (equivalent)

Also there was a giveaway of bee friendly flowers for our balconies to help sustain that bee hunger.
