What do we want for our area, East Shoreditch – grime or beauty? Polluted streets or green spaces? Over-stretched facilities or opportunities for young people?
Sunday October 11th is the chance to make your voice heard !
The East Shoreditch Neighbourhood Planning Forum is organising a community Fun Day at Rochelle School that aims to have something for everyone -
* clear explanation of the proposals the ESNPF has put together for the final Plan, after a year of consultation. (Bengali-Sylheti translators available if necessary.)
* raffle with fabulous prizes
* BBQ, bouncy castle and facepainting
* display of the game Boccia by St Hilda’s elders – and maybe an invitation to join in
* three crates of Lego for younger people to build models of their perfect houses
* Bubbles galore….!

We’ve been collecting ‘Wishes’ - what people think about the area and how East Shoreditch could be a pleasanter and more efficient place in which to live and to work.
On Sunday Nov 2nd, we are going to bring all ideas together in a drop-in community day, and shape them further. Come and hear what people have thought so far, and put in your own ideas. Together we will aim to make a larger Carpet of Wishes.
There’ll be a short formal Annual General Meeting at 10.30am with a report of actions so far. After that we’ll look at and discuss the ideas that have come up, and have a chance to hear about other visions too, over locally-sourced food at lunchtime. By 4pm, with everyone’s help. we believe we’ll have an outline agreement on the next step for our Neighbourhood Plan.
Tower Hamlets’ new community scheme allocates £10,000 to each ward. Local people will choose how it should be spent. Should it be on more greening? Better cycle paths? Play areas? Ways of dealing with dog waste?
A Weavers Ward forum to allocate the grant will meet on Tuesday December 10th at 6.30, St Peter’s Mission Hall, 56 Warner Place, London E2 7AE.
Our Neighbourhood Forum is located in Weavers Ward.
People who come to this first meeting will decide the first priorities that will be worked up for meeting number two, and how and where to allocate these funds.
