I am sure that residents of Wapping take a great interest in the health and general wellbeing of our elected representatives.
So it is with great relief that I can report that Tower Hamlets Deputy Mayor Cllr. Ohid Ahmed has got over his recent bout of flu.
“What flu?” I hear you asking.
The flu that prevented the Deputy Mayor from turning up to the St Katharine’s and Wapping Community Safety Walkabout on Friday 22 November at 4pm.
Cllr. Ohid Ahmed was on the list of attending officers but after a slight delay we were told that he had flu / was feeling unwell so the walk went ahead without him.
And very interesting it was too.
No need for concern
Since then the state of the Deputy Mayor’s health has been of some concern to us here at Love Wapping so it was great to discover via the wonders of Facebook that Cllr. Ohid Ahmed was looking fit and well only a few hours later that very same day!
In fact he had recovered from his flu so quickly that he was pictured enjoying dinner with friends at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London. (For those of you not on Facebook we borrowed the pic, but we are sure no one will mind given the circumstances.)
Trees are good
Oddly enough this dinner was for Trees for Change, a campaign to plant 30,000 trees in Africa. Great idea.
Wapping Woods has quite a few trees too so let’s hope that next time there is a Community Safety Walkabout in Wapping the Deputy Mayor is fit enough to attend.
