Just a quick note to let all Wapping residents know that Independent Councillor Shafiqul Haque (St Katharine’s and Wapping Ward) is now holding his weekly surgery every Tuesday between 5-6pm at 35 Roman Road, E2.
Isn’t that Bethnal Green?
Here’s the map with your bus route. Takes about 45 minutes.
Looks like this is close to Bethnal Green Tube Station. But it’s not very close to Wapping, is it?
If you prefer your local Councillor to be more, well, local, you could of course go and see either Cllr. Dr Emma Jones (Conservative) or Cllr. Denise Jones (Labour), both of whom hold their surgeries in Wapping.
Also I note from the lovely double page ‘Know Your Council’ pull out that I have from East End Life (I have two on my wall I like them so much) that Cllr. Haque will only see people by appointment so looks you need to email him first.
Which is a problem in itself because I have emailed Cllr. Haque numerous times and never received a reply.
Cllr. Haque is not standing in the next local elections. Probably a good career move.
