Clapton pubs

A number of Clapton pubs have recently been renovated - the Clapton Hart has of course been a big hit, but now the Crooked Billet and the Star by Hackney Downs (formerly the Three Sisters) have also been refurbished.  We understand that the Cricketers, currently being renovated, will be re-opened as a pub, although a licensing application has not yet been received by the council. 

Stellman Farm open day

This afternoon Landfield TRA organised an open day at Stellman Farm, Stellman Close - where Growing Communities are working with local residents to grow organic vegetables.  A fantastic green house has gone up and local children will be learning about growing their own food.

Action on ASB on Landfield estate

At the last TRA meeting residents on Landfield Estate raised issues around anti-social behaviour, including some very noisy all night parties, and crime.

I organised a meeting on Monday in the Community Hall for residents with the Safer Neighbourhoods team, the noise nuisance department and Hackney Homes ASB officers.  

We agreed a number of practical steps and will met again in 6 weeks to see if there has been any improvement.

For reference these are the numbers to ring if you encounter similar problems.  Even if they can't help straight away its important to ring in so incidents get logged - and the agencies can then divert resource to focus on an area. 

101 - police non emergency number

0208 356 4455 - council noise service - out of hours do leave a message even if they don't answer straight away

0208 356 3310 - Hackney Homes ASB number 

0208 356 4440 - North East Neighourhood Office
