It is the start of another week and how is everyone doing? I would like to mention first the flooding in East London, I really hope you are all well and your loved ones are also safe. Please be mindful that certain hospitals like Whipss Cross and Newham General are asking people not to go to their A&E’s, so if you need anything like be sure where to go. It seems some tube stations remain closed, so if you need to travel , plan your journey and most importantly take care.
On a more positive note – Congratulations to Tom Daly and Matty Lee for the amazing Gold they won in the men’s synchronised 10m, I watched it this morning on the edge of my seat and it made me really emotional when they won, truly deserved and a gold finally for Tom.

New online booking system for vaccines
Based on feedback from residents and young people, we have now set up an online booking form to make it easier for you to book your local vaccine appointments. Use our new booking form to get your jab at local clinics including the Arts Pavilion, East London Mosque, Granby Hall and many other pop-up clinics.
The form is quick and easy to use and is now in place alongside our dedicated helpline, which you can call on 020 7364 3030 to book appointments and ask questions.
Remember, if you don’t want to book many of our clinics are walk-in.
The Museum of London are hosting their monthly Time For A Cuppa workshop this coming Wednesday 28th July from 10.30am – 11.30am. The theme this month is food and we’ll be delving into our collections looking at packaging and labels as well as interesting old fashioned eating implements! We’ll be joined by our regular artist Luke Saydon who will get us singing and moving and share with us a Wartime story about a wedding cake.
This group is perfect for Carers of someone with Dementia, it is also an excellent activity to do together as the reminiscence aspect of the session, works postively for the person with Dementia.
We’d love to see you there. You can book by following this link or do feel free to email me directly. I’ll be sending out the link on Tuesday evening
Easing out of lockdown will allow us to get back to the people and things we love, but going “back to normal” may also bring worry or concern for many of us.
London is full of amazing people and communities who have pulled together throughout the pandemic. Our city works best when we all look out for each other.
Whilst returning to normal, make sure to take some time to check in with friends, colleagues & loved ones.
For those who may be feeling worried or facing uncertainty, remember, you are not alone. Thrive LDN’s website has a range of resources to help you with your mental health and wellbeing, and some ways to get support if you are finding things hard.
A summer of activities and play
We’ve teamed up with partner organisations to offer an action-packed programme of online and face-to-face summer activities, including athletics, drama, theatre, family play, cooking workshops, teddy bear picnics and more, to support families in keeping children learning, entertained and active this summer.
As well as hosting free events, we’ve invested £10 million as part of our parks capital programme. The programme includes improving play facilities to encourage families to make the most of the borough’s outdoor spaces, especially on bright summer days.
Unpaid carers can still access FREE PPE supplies. If you would like to receive PPE, Please contact the Carers Centre on 0207 790 1765 or Ayeda directly.
