Roman Road Trust is a small but ambitious community development organisation helping to regenerate the area of Roman Road in Bow and Globe Town.
Here’s what the Roman Road Trust say:
“We believe it is important for community members to be involved in deciding local projects and shaping the future of their neighbourhood.”
“Our members are recognised as being crucial, effective individuals who can help lead positive change in our communities. Individually, members contribute their local knowledge and expertise. Together, they provide the voice of the local area to ensure the regeneration that is happening in this area will benefit all members of the community.
“Having a large and active membership means our community has more influence and weight when it comes to attracting funding and partnerships for the projects we call want.
“It’s also important that local people have a democratic say in how Roman Road Trust is run. As a charitable organisation working for the benefit of the community, Roman Road Trust is committed to being accountable to its members. Operating as a membership organisation allows members to contribute to our vision and to vote on proposals when needed.”
Membership is free and you need to be a resident, business, or community group in the E3 or E2 area of the Roman Road. Join here. Membership entitles you to go to their next meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 10 October.
