Natalie Ogene

Thames View resident since 2021

Resident Steering Group Member of Thames Ward Community Project and Member of the TWCP Environment & Blue-Green Spaces Citizen Action Group

Natalie works in the Civil Service and moved to the area with her daughter 2021. She first came into contact with TWCP after searching for local groups who were trying to make improvements in the wider area. She has since started attending resident meetings and is part of some working groups.

She is passionate about the local environment and spaces and keen to ensure that issues such as littering and a lack of investment in maintaining local spaces is addressed. She also loves gardening and visits the Barking Food Forest with her daughter.

Natalie’s goal for Thames View and Barking Riverside is that everyone can feel the benefits of the changes happening in the community.
