We Did It!


Together we reached out target of £58,000 to reinvent The Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park Lodge along with the Friends Of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park and Tower Hamlets Council!

You are all clearly particularly brilliant people who want to see the park (and the little building at the entrance) blossom into all it can be. You did something magical and actually came forward and put your money where your mouth is! 

Many of the first pledgers have won tickets, posters and even some dinners in our yet-to-be-announced (ssshhhhhh!) Treehouse Restaurant. 

We would like to say an extra special thank you to the local businesses who are contributing to the area above and beyond what is required of them and whom also believe in a thriving cultural and community life.
