i have been thinking of applying to join for some time now so here we go I live 10 mins away in a small end terraced house with a small back garden in grenadier st north woolwich.
the idiots your referring to...some are newcomers to the area and others are from existing local stock. just seems like the recent single parent explosion has bred a lot of scum.
North Woolwich was once one of the better areas of Newham. Things went down hill a few years back when some mindless,pig ignorant, thick as sh-t scum moved in. You can usually find them hanging around pier road,or riding thier putt-putt bikes around the pavements and grassed areas. They are harmless and generally pathetic, but they are the kind of scum who don't have the brains to do anything other than cause annoyance. I suppose it takes their tiny minds off just how sh-tty their own existence is.

waking up on the sofa
with the TV still on
in drunken stupour-sequence....
Rivers of unconsicousness,
lurking in tunnels of darkness...
Worry, stress, hypertension
risque texts sent in error....
I reach for the
Starved of development
The road signs heavy with gloom
even the OLD FATHER
passes you by....
with KEEP OUT signs
comes it is darker here...
I attempt a smile
but it`s grim here...
It`s grim up

City Airport Planes are small and do not fly during the night. To be honest you never hear them noise from the planes is really non existant.
It is a very quiet area mostly and there defo aren't any restaurants/bars around here...unless you travel to canary wharf or something. There is an asda in beckton and at gallions reach shopping area, they have womens/mens/children clothes shops, places such as next, new look, topshop etc and also electrical, music dvd, the usual and a big tesco. The only club is the Tereza Joanne boat, which has special events and thursday is like a club night. After all that, it is a lovely place though, just nowhere to go! So, if you want lively don't come here...there is nothing much. Oh and it is close to city aiport, if you go from king george it takes maybe 5 mins, however if you from gallions reach dlr, it takes 25mins, cos you have to go back to canning town and come down again on the other dlr line. Buses about 10-15mins. I don't find it too noisy with the planes and I think you'd probably get used to it. Well, hope this is helpful for you.
It's a strip pub.
As I said before North woolwich and Silvertown are ok-ish, was starting to show promise late 90's 2000 time, but due to economic downturn it seems to me (Im in a perfect position to judge), the area seems to be getting a bit cheap and run down.
Why? Because there was alot of housing, some luxury built for city and Canary wharf workers, but as people have not been buying Newham council and private landlords have been moving in DSS tenants, other councils problem families and any old waif&stray.
This has had an effect of rising crime(although still very safe compared to say-Stratford or Hackney), and general untidyness.
What we need is another big economic boom and maybe the area will start to tidy up.
It had been disappointing seeing the area not reach its potential but I'd still advise you to live here if you want to be near central London.
Much safer than most inner city areas.
North Wolwich are probably one of the better parts of East London.
was better in days gone by(I lived there for over 30 years)everyone knew each other, but the council in all their wisdom started to move some bad people in and the area has sadly changed like the rest of London.
Although you do see the bad-boy hip-hop style gangs around there its still quieter&safer than most parts of London.
Fox@excel is the best pub around there.
Nice big grass area for in the summer, always a good friendly mixed crowd in their better than most places round there.
Yes I agree the area is quiet but it does have your usual local chav/yob culture, at night it feels a bit menacing around the King George V station as the gangs seem to congregate around the estates nearby the station. their is nothing to do around the area a couple of seedy looking pubs and abundance of take-away fast food places, but if your in a nice secure luxury development for half the price of Canary Wharf, you can forget about all the unpleasentness around you..
Hello, me and my boyfriend are looking to move in a few months and have been looking at the Gallions Reach area (the new developments). On the map this looks very close to City airport - does anyone have a problem with noise? Also whats it like for bars/resturants? We would like a bit of life as where we live at the moment has a corner shop and a petrol station! You can email me at
...I live in a secure private complex and it's perfect. I'm right next to a load of council flats but I've never had any problems, the only complaint I have is that the local shop seems to be a meeting point for Chavs. The areas not very pretty, it's true but, when you're living in a luxury flat and paying less then half the rent you would to live in the same standard closer to the centre, who cares if it's a bit of a dump, I only have to walk 2 mins to get to the DLR!
It's quite near to the centre but it's incredibly quiet, despite being next to London city airport. There's no night life, besides a couple of local pubs, but it's better that way. If I want to go out on the razz I can jump on the DLR and be in Canary Wharf in 15 mins or central London in under 30 mins. Who wants to live next to a load of night clubs and bars?
...and the trains aren't packed. You have a choice of the Silverlink which is never packed and goes to Canning Town, Stratford and then all over North London.
Then there is the magnificent DLR from King George V which takes you into central London in less than 25 mins.
What is the nam of the pub. Sounds fun to me

I am Eny by name, a 15 yrs old guy, I reside in gunner lane, here in woolich, I am a very good player, a creative midfielder to be precise. One thing i am so sure about is that you can never regret giving me an opportunity if at all one comes my way, and that is the only problem i have now, I am very good midfielder and i would really appreciate if you can get back to me as soon as possible on my email
I am only 3 days old in the area and I can't agree more to your comments. The area has a lot of potential for social development. As a serial entrepreneur you have really got me thinking about some good ideas. I hope there is a sizable population to patronise good entertainment should one decide to invest in the area?
We are about to move to the area and all we have seen are 2 "pubs". One seems to be a bit on the ...well rough side and the other seems to have live entertainment with some lovely blonde ladies in underwear, i got the impression that this place rents rooms by the hour!!!! Enough said
Nearest decent bars are the Hotel Bars near Prince Regent/Custom House I would be to scared to go into the Local ones.
Iv just moved to this area from waterloo london nice new development but their is absolutly nowhere to go around here. Im used to swanky west-end bars and pavement cafes. Why cant someone open up a cafe/bar at least a new breed of people have moved into the area now so to follow why not a shop or cafe/bar. I have heard that a colletion of shops and flats are being built near Galleons Reach station. Hopefully it will breathe life into this old fashioned area. What do you think
3 Pier Parade
This is my opinion and I lived there for 20 years.
What is it???
