Discussion Groups

The CTRA operates a number of discussion groups on the WhatsApp platform for Columbia residents. These include:

  • A CTRA Residents' Group: For discussing and raising general estate management concerns such as rubbish collection and maintenance issues
  • A Community Gardening Group: For those interested in taking an active role in community gardening projects around the estate
  • Anti-social Behaviour Discussion and Reporting Groups: These groups are owned and managed by the Weavers Community Action Group for residents of North Weavers. Issues on these groups are logged and shared with police, council and other stakeholder

To join one or all of these groups, ensure you have the WhatsApp application downloaded to your mobile devise, email your mobile telephone number along with your preference for which groups you'd like to join to

Please note:  These groups are for information sharing and discussion. Issues raised requiring action from the Council, Tower Hamlets Homes, Police or other agencies must also be reported through official channels.

The groups will be moderated by CTRA Committee Members. Inappropriate usage will not be tolerated.
