Lead Member for Environment, Planning and Culture, Cllr. James Powney says;
“The variety and amount of Christmas events happening across Brent this year is truly amazing. I think there’s something for everyone and I hope people get out there and enjoy as many as possible over the festive period.”
Aside from the celebrations, it is business as usual for many of the council’s services including Meals on Wheels, emergency planning and the emergency social work team, although Brent’s waste and recycling schedule will alter slightly over the festive period.
