The Rt. Hon. Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Local Government and Communities, was guest of honour at the Harrow East Conservative Association’s Annual Dinner at the home of Councillor Marilyn and David Ashton on 10th December 2011. Councillor Marilyn Ashton, the Association Chairman, said that it was a pleasure to have Eric Pickles attend our dinner. He was very entertaining and he addressed those present about local government matters including Council Tax issues and Planning Policy. It was an enjoyable and successful event and, apart from raising a nice sum of money for campaigning, a very good time was had by all.
