This group is not affiliated to any other website. It is the original, uncensored Manor Park Village Community group, created in 2008 by the local Conservation Society and Neighbourhood Watch to foster participation and facilitate improvement in the life of the "Village" and Durham Road Conservation Area of Manor Park in Newham, East London, UK.
Now as then, it is simply for people who care about the place they call home.
We provide a virtual meeting space for neighbours to talk freely, based on an open ethos of mutual consideration, trust and personal responsibility. Members are all known/knowable and directly accountable to each other. We want to make things better for everyone, in whatever way, by the small act of sharing: thoughts, ideas, information, time and tasks; the past, the present, the future.
The rest of this site is only accessible to members, who must normally live or have lived in one of the 7 roads of the "Village" (Durham, Clarence, Carlton, Albany, Wentworth, Cumberland, or Manor Park Road) or have an exceptional link to it. Please ask to join by clicking the button above if you are eligible. An administrator will get in touch. Your name, address, telephone number and email must be confirmed in person in the real world before any membership can be activated, so it is essential that you include all this information in the "Comment to Owner" box which you will see when you sign up.
Group discussion is by email, with replies automatically circulated to all. Local "officials" can post without joining. They aren’t allowed to read discussions or see your details.
You need a username (YahooID) to access the online areas. If you don't have one already, creating one is part of the joining process. You don't need to use the Yahoo email facility: you can use any email address. There is a place to specify one on the sign-up page.
