A New Blog


Whilst looking after onlineinpoplar, I have been much encouraged by the kind interest of other bloggers.  Encouraged enough to produce my own blogFreed from Time” which gives me more scope. There will be Stories from life, Places of Interest, Merry Mishaps, occasional  Commentary and a little daft humour.  The first new post is “The Yacht“.  I hope you will drop by and find something of interest.  With thanks to all who have been encouraging.  🙂


Helping to Predict Climate Change

This is something practical and essential that we can all do to help, by running weather simulations at home.  The university then collects all the information for its climate model.  There is so much we can learn.  ~ Please pass it around and enjoy your day. 🙂

Special Offer – Tower of London

The Tower of London is offering a £1 entry fee to residents of Tower Hamlets.  You will need an Idea Store Card or Tower Hamlets Leisure Services Card.  In addition adults must show proof of identity/residency.

Under 15’s, if accompanied by an adult,  do not need either a card or any proofs but are also charged £1.

Tickets cannot be booked in advance therefore, at busy times, it will probably be necessary to queue at the ticket office.

This concession may not have been intended for large parties but, as long as all are residents of Tower Hamlets, I don’t see how they can refuse.  Perhaps best to inquire first.

For more information about the offer:-  http://www.hrp.org.uk/TowerofLondon/educationandcommunity/Towercommunity/TowerHamlets
