Joan Flannery 1928 - 2022It is with great sadness we inform you that Joan Flannery died in UCLH hospital at 11am on Wednesday, 15th June 2022 in UCLH hospital. She slipped peacefully away leaving her son Marc and three grandsons, Nathan, Kieran and Joseph.Joan was born a Liverpudlian in 1928 moving to London in 1948 where, among other roles, became the Landlady of the 'Three Greyhounds' Pub in Soho during the 1950’s. When Marc was born in 1960 they found themselves living in a one bedroom flat in Old Street where she had the support of wonderful friends and neighbours.On returning to work at the GPO (now BT), Joan was soon able to move onto Golden Lane Estate, first to Hatfield House in 1969 before downsizing to Great Arthur House in 1984 when Marc left home.Anyone who knew Joan would remember her as a fiercely determined and the driving force behind the Golden…See More

COVID-19 - Message to Community Groups

Dear colleagues and partners,

We have all been advised to take measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus. For many in our communities – particularly those who are older or who have support needs – this will be a time of worry, and a time in which the support of friends, neighbours and community services will be vital. 

We recognise that neighbours, friends, local faith groups and local community groups are often best placed to provide support. You know your community and those within it who may need some help or just some friendly contact while they stay within their homes.

We are fortunate within the City of London to have a range of such groups and networks - often very localised to estates or blocks. Rather than look to encourage or develop new groups to respond to coronavirus, we are encouraging those that are already organised by local communities for local communities. 

This help will be a vital strength for our community, providing trusted and known support. It will help safeguard our most vulnerable friends and neighbours from isolation, and from those who may exploit this situation for the wrong reasons. 

So please take forward the response that so many of you have offered. But in doing so remember that we all must follow public health guidance on social distancing and self-isolation – so as not to put at risk the very friends and neighbours we wish to help. 


Thank you and best wishes,





Andrew Carter
