This was the last edition of Tower Community Newspaper ever produced. Fitzrovia’s community newspaper production was taken up by a different team and was published as Fitzrovia Neighbourhood News, the first edition appearing in November 1980.

Front Page. Triumph that nearly turned into tragedy. Two years of gruelling work by the Fitzrovia Play Association involving the raising of nearly £30,000 from local residents, charities and national government, reached a climax last month, when the new Warren Playground opened in Whitfield Street.

But the triumph missed tragedy by a hair’s breadth. For, exactly 24 hours before the opening ceremony, two houses in Whitfield Street collapsed in an avalanche of rubble, covering the spot where local children, the mayor of Camden, the deputy mayor of Westminster, and local MP Frank Dobson were due to stand.
