Hello Chaucer Ward,
Due to the guidance about gatherings which are no longer supported by government. The MET has now given the advice to cancel our Ward events in the interest of personal and public safety regarding the coronavirus.
We will keep you updated with further information and when the next available date will be set for the Panel Meeting.
If you have any issues regarding ASB around the ward please call 101 or 999 at the time of the incident happening. You can email us regarding on going issues so that we can patrol the problem areas.
Leaving News!!!! I will be leaving Chaucer SNT on 5th April 2020 this will be my last day. I am moving to Bishops SNT on Lambeth. I will miss not being able to say a personal goodbye but want to say that I have enjoyed working with and serving the residents who live on the ward for the last 7 years. Nigel and Richard will keep the ward patrolled and do their best to help with the issues that arise.

In light of the rapidly changing situation with coronavirus, this is to inform you that Tenant Council, Homeowner Council, Area Housing Forums and Southwark Tenant Management Organisation Committee (STMOC) will be suspended until further notice. In addition, we very strongly advise that tenant and resident associations (TRAs) suspend meetings until further notice. We have taken this decision in order to minimise the potential risk to our older and vulnerable residents. We will let you know when we are in a position to organise meetings in the future, and when we consider it safe for tenant and resident associations to resume meeting.
The council is reviewing upcoming scheduled meetings and events to consider whether they should go ahead and we will keep residents informed. Please continue to follow public health advice to reduce the spread of the virus, which is to wash your hands often with soap and water, and stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms. You can find more information on the council’s dedicated coronavirus webpage dedicated coronavirus webpage and on the government website.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
