Because of the current coronavirus outbreak, and in line with the latest NHS and Government guidance, the majority of our activities – attendance at public meetings, everyday liaison with Camden Council, etc, – will cease until the time we receive advice that it is safe for UK residents to resume normal activities
Over the past couple of weeks, we have focused our efforts on maintaining an online presence via our website and have posted important statements and other related information, which we have received as a Camden Association with an active membership.
So long as capacity is available, we will continue to update our website with information, which our members may find useful during this difficult time.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and sincerely hope that normal everyday activities will resume in the not too distant future.
Please stay safe and well!

The funding has come from the HS2 Business and Local Economy Fund (BLEF), part of a combined total of £40 million in funding available to local communities and businesses that are demonstrably disrupted by the construction of Britain’s new high speed railway between London and the West Midlands. This is the largest award that has been made from the Funds to date and the project will join the other 113 projects between London and the West Midlands that have also benefited.
According to this article in the Camden New Journal, 500 healthy staff at UCLH will take part in a trial of a Covid-19 vaccine. It will try to see whether healthy people can be protected from coronavirus by the vaccine.
Test samples will be analysed at the Francis Crick Institute in Somers Town.
During the coronavirus pandemic, funding has been made available to house rough sleepers in hotels, under the “Everyone In” scheme. 160 rough sleepers are currently being housed by Camden Council in temporary accommodation.
Despite rumours that the Westminster Government are not going to continue the scheme once the current funding runs out, the Council have confirmed that funding will continue for at least the next three months.
