Islington LifeIslington Life is a good Twitter feed for the entire Islington area. Many of the issues in the entire Borough affect its southernmost wards, and sometimes they are actually exacerbated in these areas. It also occasionally publishes useful information and insights on specific wards, including Clerkenwell and Bunhill.
