New college - Isle of Dogs

Can anyone explain why a new college on the Isle of Dogs based in the Docklands Settlement is known as the Canary Wharf College? Canary Wharf is based on the Island, not the other way around. Islanders are proud of their rich heritage and wish to preserve it as should any new development on the Island. Why not the Isle of Dogs College?!!

Living on Isle Of Dogs. Advice please!

Hi all, I am a mum of 2 and considering moving to the area. Is the area generally safe? I know that crime is everywhere, but what is it like in the area. Coming off the bus at night, and walking round the area. Sending the children to the local shop on their own aged 9 and 17. Are there any activities like football, tennis etc for my youngest? I hear there is horseriding in the area which would be definaltley appealing! Nightlife? Is it any good or would I need to travel. Is there a nightbus as Im not afraid of getting on a bus late at night if i were to spend an evening in the west end.

Also cultures, are there different cultures living amongst each other in relative peace? May sound like a silly question but in this day and age its quite important!

Thanks in advance, Shelly

My parents(Ron and Rene Cook) had the Magnet and Dewdrop in the late 60's. A hard pub but good fun, the girls went out for the night dressed in suits and hats! East end girls did NOt wear white high heels. Live music although the glasses did fly on occasions.Fond memories and I will try the family and see if any photos still survive.

Are the stories true?

We are thinking of moving to a place near the river between Island Gardens and Cross Harbour DLR - about 15 minutes walk from each. I was wondering if people thought the walk was safe.

There seem to be lots of negative newspaper reports about anti-social gangs of teenagers and locals reporting they feel they can't even go to the local shop because of this.

What do you think?

Have you seen my bike??RED AND SILVER Y-FRAME BIKE

I parked my bike in the carpark of St Davids Square, Enterprise House, Lockes Wharf near car space 313. It was securely chained to a concrete pole/drain pipe. I have even removed the saddle from the bike!!

Have you seen anyone removing by bike from the carpark or acting suspiciously in the area (i.e. bike without a saddle!)? I suspect a group of kids seen in the area who commented to me they "liked my bike" when I rode past them but obviously have no proof.

The bike got stolen between Sunday 10/07 and Tuesday night (12/07). If you have seen anything suspicious, please contact me on 079 ****305 /
