AN INVITATION TO JOIN THE SPITALFIELDS SOCIETY
Founded in 1994, the Spitalfields Society has, over the years, campaigned on behalf of the residents for a variety of issues which have affected our community. We have also endeavoured to make our community a more pleasant place to live by supporting initiatives and investments in Spitalfields.
At the 2015 AGM, (then) Chairman Nicholas Morse highlighted the year’s main involvement:
Anti Social Behaviour: a huge amount of engagement locally, including:
- The monthly meetings held by Jason Zeeloof of the Old Truman Brewery.
- The police
- Other local amenity groups, including SPIRE, concerned with reducing Anti-Social Behaviour, involved with which are two of the Society’s Committee members
- The number of public toilets in the area
