Isle of Dogs resident Ruth Musgrove has been honoured as an inspirational local hero in the Tower Hamlets STAR in the Community Awards.

The Awards, organised by eight housing associations working within the borough, recognise the efforts and achievements of local residents.

Ruth, who lives on the Alpha Grove estate, was one of seven residents to collect an Inspirational Resident Award, during a prestigious evening ceremony held at the Atrium in Bethnal Green at the end of January.

Ruth was nominated for her devotion to helping and improving the neighbourhood.

Despite having her own health issues she is always willing to help, motivate and support her elderly neighbours, and is keen to improve the estate and the extended community.

Congratulations to Ruth on her well-deserved award!
