11 accounts you should follow for Archway news

This is the little patch of London that I’ll be reporting on this year.

Archway technically isn’t an actual ward in Islington, but a lot of the neighbourhood is in Junction Ward, and it’s way easier to distinguish as a specific term (type ‘Junction’ into twitter and you will get inundated with a whole load of irrelevant tweets).

Here is a shortlist of 11 twitter accounts to follow to stay up to date with the latest news.

I have also done a more comprehensive list. It’s still a work-in-progress – I’ll hopefully be adding to it as my knowledge of the area increases!

1. @archwaylondon

Official twitter account of the Archway Town Centre Group (ATCG), an independent body representing business interests in Archway. They have a great website as well, and tweet about upcoming events.

2. @WhitHealth

The main healthcare provider in the area, Whittington Health runs the main hospital in the area.

3. @dwhcoalition

Following on from WhitHealth – this is the twitter account for the DWH Coalition (Defend Whittington Hospital Coalition). Run by the incredibly formidable Shirley Franklin, they campaign tirelessly to prevent what they see is the slow privatisation of the hospital.

4. @N19Archway

Retweets locals in the area, great forum for accessing hard-to-find on the ground opinions.


5. @TheNorthernista

Archway local who tweets enthusiastically and frequently.

6. @JanetBurgess1

So 6, 7 and 8 sort of follow on the same lines – they’re the respective twitter accounts of the Junction Ward councillors.

7. @KayaJunction

8. @tim_nicholls

9. @betterarchway

Twitter account for Better Archway Forum, a community group which works to improve the area.

10. @tomfoot1

Journalist for the Islington Tribune, Camden New Journal and West End Extra.

11. @IslingtonBC

And finally – the Islington Council twitter account.
