Loved working for Tower Hamlets.
General rule of thumb:
1. Hang on to hat
2. Hit fifth-gear...lap up every oppt for prof devel (a couple of courses per month-sign up for em all)
3. Pub recommend-The Lauriston smack-bang in the centre of Bethnal Green-other side of Vicky Pk.
4. Museum of childhood def worth a visit (near BG tube station).
