WHAT WE DO
Once the building was acquired from the council, the café was established and the upper floors became managed work space. The incomes from the café lease and office rental are put to charitable purposes within the community. We are in the process of planning our next Summer Shindig (read about last years event here)
We support a programme of history walks in the area by our sister organisations, the History of Wapping Trust and are working on an online version.
Our annual summer shindig celebrates the Wapping community and features local talent, home cooking and history walks around midsummer’s day.
Wapping River Stairs
With the Honourable Watermen’s Company, the Council and other partners we’re working to restore the historic river stairs used when London itself was a busy port.
We’re working on plans for a lido in Shadwell Basin including natural water treatment
We backed the successful campaign for the creation of a park at Hermitage Wharf to remember the 30,000 civilians killed in World War 2.
We sponsor a local football team – Wapping Warriors and have funded Summer play projects
Because we’re independent we’ve stood up to big developers and promote land use that benefits residents. We’re trying to get allotments in Vaughan Way.
