Advice from the Metropolitan Police

Thanks to the TRA, we are now the proud possessors of a table tennis table & badminton kit, which is kept in the Brunswick community room at 10 Foundling Court. It is there to be used, so if you and your family and friends would like to have a go please contact Stuart Tappin at It would be great if we could find an adult volunteer willing to oversee a weekly session in the community room, so that as many people as possible can use the equipment, which was purchased with a grant from Camden.Following the appalling attacks at the Manchester Arena and at London Bridge last night, the Metropolitan Police have issued the following key advice for the general public:

  •   Residents should stay calm and, as far as possible, continue their lives as normal while remaining vigilant and reporting anything suspicious to the police by calling 0800 789 321. If residents feel in immediate danger they should call 999.
  •   If a member of the public is confronted by a potentially dangerous situation, the Police advise “Run, Hide, Tell”:

o RUN to a place of safety. This is a far better option than to surrender or negotiate. If there’s nowhere to go, then…

o HIDE. It’s better to hide than to confront. Remember to turn your phone to silent and turn off vibrate. Barricade yourself in if you can. Then finally and only when it is safe to do so…

o TELL the police by calling 999.

Potential for hate crime

We will not allow these dreadful attacks to divide us or to undermine our freedoms. We will not be cowed and our daily lives must continue.

We encourage residents to report and share information of any type of hate crime that they witness or experience in the borough. Our message is clear: hate crimes will not be tolerated and we must stand together to support everyone in our communities. Camden rejects all messages of hate based on people’s nationality or ethnicity.

If you witness a hate crime report it, even if you are unsure what happened – the perpetrator may do it again. If anyone is in danger call 999. For non-emergencies, call the police on 101.
