Hello, I live in the Circle, Shad Thames. A part from this forum (which is fab, btw) I am struggling to connect with my direct/closest neighbours. I can't find any local store, or even any residential reception with advertising boards. I am willing to meet new parents to be, for example, and even make some friendships but it seems impossible to just communicate within this community. I have, therefore, created a Fbk group so if you feel the same way than me, you are welcome to join the group and start sharing with us :) Thanks

Hi Cristina, welcome to Shad Thames! While they're not social clubs, it's worth following the Shad Thames Residents Association ( and STAMP ( to find out the goings on in the community. STAMP organises various events, including guided walks and stakeholder meetings, throughout the year.

Hope that helps! :)

Have joined your group - I also live in The Circle

I thought The Circle Store had a noticeboard just inside the door? Perhaps that's not for public use though.

Hi Shad Thames neighbours

STRA and STAMP ( ) both have newsletters and Twitter accounts that you can sign up to, if you'd like to keep up to date. But it's great that you've started a Facebook page as well.

Regarding notice boards - The Circle store seem to have removed their board when they refurbished. But usually information about what's happening in the area finds it way to notice boards in residential buildings (including The Circle) and also in the windows of local shops on Shad Thames likes Hide All.

Another useful organisation nearby is Team London Bridge and their related website www.atlondonbridge, also the newsletter for Potters Fields Park.
