The Stuff We Can't Fit In Somewhere Else
  • Thamesmead is a collection of different communities. Some of the old part is ex GLC property, occupied by the perpetually unemployed - single mums, skank heads and wineos. Lots of North Thamesmead is Little Lagos populated mostly by Nigerian immigrants. In the west, you can see the yuppies scuttling to catch the river bus to the city each morning. Incidently, nobody lives IN Thamesmead, locals will tell you they live ON it.
  • YAP provides a free course to Greenwich residents aged 16 - 24, interested in informing the next generation around drug misuse. This is a course full of knowledge, runs two days per week.
