Golden Lane Bike project - results of resident consultation at Zoom

June 27, 2022 from 7pm to 8pm
Come to a zoom presentation on Monday 27 June from 7pm to 8pm In response to the pandemic, 2020 saw a major move towards encouraging cycling and walking in the City of London and across the capital. As an alternative to public transport and car use, making the most of the fresh air suddenly became very attractive.

A grant application was made for funding to encourage cycling; refurbish existing bike sheds; add new public bicycle racks and create a set of safe and secure places for cycle storage.

I was wondering if there were any existing efforts to coordinate support to older residents in the event of a worsening coronavirus situation. In such a scenario I imagine older neighbours will be staying inside their flats and may need others to drop supplies or food off to them? Anyone know anything about that, and how the rest of us might pitch in?

I am a full time carer to my elderly partner, who has dementia, and am keeping him indoors for a while.  He is happy, as does not like going out when its cold anyway.  I don't have any elderly neighbours myself, but would be happy to help, but, as yet, don't know about any such plans.  You raise a good point. 

I'm unable to lend a hand as I am immunosuppressed myself, however I have seen a similar discussion on the Barbican Forums that might be of interest: https://www.barbicantalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20308

They're currently discussing volunteers for home deliveries should anyone require them on the estate.

Thanks Clare!

Actually , I was thinking about this as well. I'm happy to help out if needed.

Alright, let's see how the situation progresses and use this thread as a place to organize if need be. 

Good one Lee

Happy to help too

Does anyone know how to reach people in such cases?

Is there somehting being coordinated by the City?

Finding out who our neighbours are would be good...my immediate neighbours are young and appear healthy. I do not know the older ones further up.

Knocking on doors and offering help could be a start, or dropping a note? I doubt the older generation will be on this online community group.

How do we coordinate?

I am on the 3rd floor of Crescent house like maria and could watch out for our neighbours on this flloor. How do we cover the other buildings and floors?

Also consider joining this Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/citymutualaid/

oooops- just duplicated this?

This is a great idea.  I suggest we contact the Estate Office to find out if there are any plans being led by the Housing Department.  We should probably also coordinate with the local supermarkets and pharmacy, as they may turn volunteers away if they have to implement a quota system and we turn up with a long shopping list on behalf of others.  I'll drop a message to the Estate Office to find out if they have any plans and post back here what I find.

Hi Peter and Philippe. There is an email thread going with several others at GLE on this topic. If you'd like to be added, just drop me a message at leewilsonbailey at gmail and I will loop you in. 

thanks will do

Hi Lee

I have just tried to email you but I cannot get your email addy to take. Please would you post it as I would like to join the Volunteers for Coronavirus.
