We're getting through this together

Since March, we've been keeping residents and everyone across our communities updated on the local response to the pandemic through regular, dedicated emails, social media, our website and more.

A few months in, it's clear this isn't over. But we wanted to take a moment to thank and celebrate everyone in Tower Hamlets for the way you have all stepped up so far to help beat this thing.

And to do this, we've put together a special two-minute film...

Watch the video

New film celebrates the Tower Hamlets community

It has been incredibly heartening to see so many residents, volunteers, community groups, partner organisations and council staff working together from across our diverse communities to tackle coronavirus.

Through our #TowerHamletsTogether film, we want to say a very big thank you to everyone who is helping to keep Tower Hamlets healthy, safe and supported - from key workers and volunteers to all those who stayed at home.

Together, you have shown that in Tower Hamlets, we protect our neighbours. That we are resilient with a collaborative spirit. That we can come together by staying apart. And that we will come out of this stronger than before.

Watch, share and like the video to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone in our community for helping to get us through this together.

If you're helping in the community, why not take a moment to share a photo or a story on social media using the hashtag #TowerHamletsTogether?

It could be anything from displaying your child's rainbow drawing in your window to dropping off essential supplies to a neighbour, or maybe you're a small business or organisation supporting people in a different way. Every little gesture is helping us get through this together. 

Thank you to absolutely everyone for playing their part. And thank you to those who have already shared their stories!
