Statement from Coin Street Community Builders

As a community organisation working in Waterloo and North Southwark, we were devastated by the events on Saturday evening at London Bridge and Borough Market. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this horrendous act.

Last Friday, the day before the attack, at Oxo Tower Wharf, our community was celebrating the heritage of Bankside and the individuals, groups and organisations that have played important roles in shaping the Bankside we know and love today.

Our community of young people, adults, older people and families is resilient and creative. We believe the only response to these tragic events is to continue to support one another in pursuing the values and actions which enable this community, of which we are proud to be part, to thrive.
