Visit My Mosque Day

The 5th of February 2017 was #VisitMyMosque Day. This is an annual UK event organised by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), now in its 3rd year. Visit my Mosque day is a fantastic opportunity for local residents to visit their local Mosque and meet with the Muslim community, to gain a better understanding of the Islamic faith and a chance to ask any questions.

I visited the Sri Lankan Muslim Cultural Centre in Whitefriars Avenue, Wealdstone where I was made to feel very welcome by all. This was my first visit to a Mosque and I came away learning so much about the Muslim faith & the history of Islam and the role the Mosque plays in the local community, including the charitable work and fundraising projects.

Canons Ward – Spring Update 2017

Canons Conservative Councillors have been working hard to address the implications of increased traffic and congestion across Stanmore and Edgware. Within the last six months the Canons team have addressed this by:

  • Introducing parking restrictions and emergency road safety measures on Pangbourne Drive and Stonegrove to protect residents from motorists who are using the road as a rat run to cut through Stanmore.
  • Introducing 24/7 resident permit parking on Kerry Court to protect local residents from inconsiderate parking from commuters and minicabs drivers.
  • Campaigning for Wembley Event Day parking across Stanmore and Canons Park.
  • Supporting residents of the Canons Drive Estate in their battle to stop heavy weight recovery vehicles parking outside their homes.

Canons Councillors have also secured £20,000 to regenerate the Canons Park Station Parade. Cllr Ameet Jogia said, “Canons Park has been neglected by Harrow Council for many years and I am pleased that we have this opportunity to reinstate the parade back to its previous glory.”

Labour’s Environmental Chaos: Litter and Fly-Tipping On The Rise!

Harrow Weald Councillors have received a lot of complaints from irate residents regarding the lack of general maintenance, litter and fly-tipping across the ward. Despite a 2% increase in Council Tax, introduction of the £75 Brown Bin Tax and further Council Tax hikes planned for 2017, the Labour run Harrow Council continues to cut back on environmental and street cleaning services. This is not just an issue within Harrow Weald but throughout the Borough.

Meanwhile, the brown bin system is in chaos, with collections frequently being missed and long queues to get to the rubbish tip. Having introduced this scheme, against strong opposition from local residents and councillors, Labour failed to think through the consequences. This situation is unacceptable and we will continue to do everything possible to fight for improvements.
