Lockdown starts to ease
The decision was taken to suspend regular public meetings until it's once again safe to meet as a community. However this was also the time that our community needed each other more then ever. The Officers have been meeting weekly since the outbreak, to coordinate our how we could most help, to put our skill sets and formed partnerships to best use.
Since then the LCF has provided thousands of free PPE face shields to residents, hospitals and care homes. Some of these directly to doctors and intensive care units.
We've partnered with grass roots volunteers funding posters and notices insuring the delivery of food parcels, shopping, medicines and chore doing, providing the volunteers with Hi-Viz vest to increase everyone's safety.
We've worked to make sure the most isolated and vulnerable residents had telephone calls to keep their spirits up and cheerful.
We've collected hundreds of spare plates to make sure our friends, Neighbours in Poplar, could provide over 90 hot meals each day to the elderly.
We've collect over 100 quality t-shirts and trainers for the Docklands Settlement.
We've kept in close contact with our local primary school, Cyril Jackson, allowing it to become the local school which was able to take in the most key worker and vulnerable children in the borough.
In early 2020 the long standing Chair of our local Police Ward Panel Conor stood down as Chair. The Chair of the PWP is appointed by the Sergeant of our Safer Neighbourhood Team. The LCF has recognises the importance of this role in our community and therefore, the PWP Chair has always been welcomed onto the LCF Executive. We are pleased to announce that the new Chair of our PWP, is former Police Inspector, and long time Limehouse resident David Garside. David can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
We're now doing so much more
Kids art walk
These banners will be positioned around Limehouse, to create a Kids' Art Walk. Residents can take a safe walk around all parts of our ward to view the larger-then-life drawings, and then vote online for the most representative drawing. The participants will receive awards and the and chosen drawing will be featured on our website homepage.
New Food bank
But we also want to address the growing issues of climate change, street use, recycling and air quality. We're pleased to tell you that Dorinda Osterman will be joining as the leader of the LIMEgreen Working Group. Dorinda is probably over qualified for the role with her history in geochemistry and oceanography. We're very pleased she has agreed to take on this challenging role.
