OurBow.Com has been set up to enable the voices of Bow to get heard and to bring the community together.
The most historically and culturally rich borough in the world is Tower Hamlets, at it’s heart is the ward of Bow.
Our Bow.com is
a platform to tell everyone else about yourselves and your your activities
a source of local news and information
a forum for opinion, discussion and action
We need your contributions and your suggestions.
OurBow.Com is run by the The Geezers, a group of older men in Bow. We meet once a week at the AgeUK East London Resource Centre at Appian Court, providing social activities for older men in the community who might otherwise be isolated.
We have undertaken a number of inter-generational projects, notably the Geezer Power water turbine project and a series of films made in collaboration with young people in the area. These won an iCoCo (Institute of Community Cohesion) award and were featured in the Sunday Telegraph.
Our most recent project is the Where’s My Boozer Gone? campaign which is highlighting the loss of the local pub, with the damaging impact its having on communities, particularly for the older generation for whom the local is often their social hub.
The Geezers are Supported by AgeUK East London and Action For Bow.
