Triangle History Team update

Barbara Reid writes: 

It has been a long time since we have been able to meet at the Ash and it’s likely to be some time before we can gather again so I am organising a Zoom meeting on Wednesday 20 January at 7.30. The meeting will last approximately one hour. A link to the meeting will be sent nearer the time. 

I will be giving a short talk on the history of the Roan Schools in Greenwich and Mick Delap will give an update on the Creek. 

Some of our ideas/plans have had to be put on hold but we can discuss where we are at.

Tunnel update

Work at the Greenwich Pumping Station site has progressed well this past year.

They have successfully launched Tunnel Boring Machine Annie and are now on their way to creating the 4.5km Greenwich connection tunnel, from Greenwich Pumping Station to Chambers Wharf in Bermondsey.  Annie has already successfully tunnelled through 4.5m of ground and built 5 rings, as pictured below.

The site is now closed and will restart on 4 January 2021.

Site security staff and CCTV will remain in operation, as will the 24-hour Tideway Helpdesk, which you can contact to speak to a member of the team, sign up for email updates from the site or find out about community liaison working group meetings. 

In the new year they will continue tunnelling throughout 2021.

COVID-19 Vaccine in Greenwich

The first phase of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme has begun in Greenwich with the first vaccinations provided this week.

 The COVID-19 (coronavirus) vaccine is safe and effective and gives the best protection against coronavirus.

The NHS will be in touch when it's your turn to be vaccinated. Please help us by not contacting your GP surgery or other NHS service asking for the vaccination.

 This is a long-term vaccination programme and it will likely take until at least Spring before all high-risk groups have been offered a COVID-19 vaccine. When you are contacted and offered the vaccination, please attend your booked appointment.

In the meantime; remember to continue to follow the recommended guidance including

  •  regularly washing your hands,
  •  wearing a mask
  •  keeping a safe distance.

 Help us control the virus and save lives.

Doorstep Charity Collections

A resident has reported callers at his door claiming to be raising money for GOSH for a child’s operation. 

It is difficult for the charity to confirm if he is genuine without knowing further details so we would advise residents if they are unsure then not to donate any money on the doorstep.  If someone does return then you could ask if they are happy to confirm name and postcode so that the charity could check their records for any fundraisers that they are aware of or if they have a fundraising page that is automatically linked to GOSH Charity so that all donations would go straight to the charity.  Residents can also make donations online via charity websites to reassure them that their donation is going to the correct place.

If you do have any concerns that this may be a scam then we would also recommend contacting the local police to register this with them.
