Despite public opposition, widespread coverage and the outcry of all the significant heritage bodies, Sainsbury’s are pushing ahead with their plans for a twenty-eight storey tower of luxury flats overshadowing the historic Grade I listed Trinity Green Almshouses in Whitechapel


The Friends of Trinity Green are staging a fundraising dinner on Friday 2nd December cooked by Oliver Rowe, acclaimed chef & star of BBC2′s The Urban Chef, in the beautiful panelled chapel at Trinity Green which has never before hosted such an event. This candlelit evening will include a three course seasonal meal inspired by Oliver’s new book, Food for All Seasons. The Friends of Trinity Green are inviting a donation of £300 per guest towards their legal fighting fund to stop Sainsbury’s. If you wish to attend, please email friendsoftrinitygreen@gmail.com to reserve your place.

    I am so pleased that GA has featured Dan Cruickshank’s again, so soon after your nice pub piece on Sandra and Dan. This blog to save Trinity Green is important and none of us won’t the depth of view destroyed by block’s of flats leaving the Almshouses in perpetual dominance and shadow. Its a pity Business is not coming forward in support, they do have a moral obligation towards their city. I would like to thank the following; Friends of Trinity Green, Spitalfieldslife and of course Dan Cruickshank’s the peoples champion. Lots of power here you will win, more Londoners and Business must also rally around. ?Is there a plan b or compromise it is not for me to say. John PS Two Beeb people in support that’s really nice well done you.

    A great catastrophe awaits us all if the planned works take place.
    Our future generations will be at loss.
