Malmesbury Residents Association organises events with the aim of strengthening the local community and connecting people.
We try to ensure Tower Hamlets Homes (THH) manages properties and public spaces in Malmesbury appropriately. This is done by, for example, attending quarterly estate walkabouts with our Housing Officer and the Head Caretaker, and responding to consultations.
We help connect Malmesbury residents with THH and Tower Hamlets Council to communicate issues of concern. In previous meetings we have invited staff from these two organisations to discuss with residents anti-social behaviour and proposed developments.
We are interested in improving the green spaces in Malmesbury – we have already bought and planted a new tree in the green square next to Williams House, and this year some of our Committee will attend a course on growing wildflowers provided by The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park.
With support from CleanupUK, we hold litter pick events.
Our only source of funding is grants and donations. Therefore, we proactively seek money from organisations such as THH as well as donations from local businesses.
