Hello Everyone

So how is everyone today, any plans for the Bank Holiday weekend?  The last bank holiday before Christmas HaHaHa.  I am off to check out a possible puppy, well their mother who should be giving birth late September, but I am very excited.  This is what the puppy will look like when I finally get him or her in November.

Shop safe and shop local this bank holiday weekend

This year has been tough for our small businesses. Many of us have been stuck inside for months and some people will be tightening the purse strings because of the financial cost of the pandemic. Now, more than ever, it’s important to show our local retail stores and hospitality venues that they can count on your support.

This bank holiday weekend is a great time to plan some activities closer to home:

  • Saturday is ‘arch day’ and celebrates businesses based in railway arches in the borough, so why not pay those in your area a visit?
  • Sunday sees Columbia Road transformed into the iconic flower market so it’s an ideal time to pick up something beautiful for that pot that is sitting empty!
  • Monday is the last opportunity to ‘eat out to help out’ so there’s no better time to grab a table in the new outdoor restaurant seating areas in Brick Lane.

Whatever you do this weekend, stay safe, stay local, support our wonderful businesses, and have a great time.


Don’t delay getting a test if you have Covid-19 symptoms

If you experience Covid-19 symptoms (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste), make sure you book a test straight away.

You need to get the test done in the first five days of having symptoms. NHS Test and Trace is a national programme that enables anyone with symptoms to get tested quickly. You can order a home testing kit or visit a mobile testing unit in the borough on 28 August.

We are also asking you to share your thoughts on the Test and Trace programme so that we can make sure it’s as effective as possible in Tower Hamlets.


We are still looking and hoping to get a carer who has used the Test & Trace, we would like to get their feedback and if interested be part of a promotional video to help and encourage others.   If interested email tony@ccth.org.uk
