FORGET the Hollywood Boulevard, a Walk of Fame can soon be found right here in the East End.

And one of Tower Hamlets' oldest residents, 101-year-old Frank Whipple, will be the first person to join it, as part of a new campaign launched today.

Frank already has a floral display of his name in Bethnal Green's Museum Gardens after being nominated by Advertiser reporter Julia Gregory to be celebrated in the Rooted in the Earth project.

But later this year he will have a star on the East End Walk of Fame next to the floral display, as part of Tower Hamlet's council new community campaign Tower Hamlets Together.

The latest 18-month campaign aims to highlight how East Enders work with the council, police and health services to boost living conditions as well as inform others how they can get involved in the community.
