Working hard for you all year round

A common criticism cited on the doorstep is “You only come around when you want our votes”.

In fact I still get it now. I remember speaking to a resident on Denzil Road during the Summer who was taken back when I told her “but I was only elected last year and there’s three years to go until the next Council elections!”

Your Councillors and the Dudden Hill Labour Party is working hard for you all year around and in the last year we’ve spent evenings and weekends knocking on doors on Ilex Road, Waterford Way, Burnley Road, Geary Road, Helena Road, Park Avenue North, Avondale Avenue, North Circular Road, Jeymer Avenue, Kenneth Crescent, Denzil Road, Lancaster Road, Aberdeen Road, Chantry Crescent, Chapel Close, Griffin Close, Gay Close, Clifford Way, Sherrick Green Road, Selbie Avenue, Severn Way in addition to attending meetings with the Cairnfield Residents’ Association, Neasden Neighbourhood Watch, Ashcombe Park Neighbourhood Watch, and Dudden Hill Ward Panel meetings.

I am opening up an exclusive offer for Dudden Hill residents to talk with their neighbours on their street. Anyone that wishes to take me up on this offer will be guaranteed a pre-arranged Saturday to spend knocking on doors with you on your road and asking residents if they have any problems or issues that they would like to raise. Email cllr.krupesh.hirani@brent.gov.uk to take up this offer!

Following the riots, we led with the local Police teams to speak to businesses in the Neasden Shopping Centre and Church Road to give them reassurance when they were feeling vulnerable.

Aslam and I provided reassurance to residents on Sonia Gardens after the tragic fire incident on Sonia Gardens and arranged for additional traffic management on behalf of the Crest Academy given the additional interest around the school during this period.

Apologies for the late notice.

It’s been a sad few days for London

We hoped that Brent would not fall victim to some of the scenes that we have seen on the news in other parts of London. But it is unfortunate that a few minority have been inspired by scenes in other parts of London, rather than appalled by what is happening and are carrying out criminal activity in Brent.

Brent residents had been offered tickets at a heavily discounted rate for the England vs Holland football friendly international game. The Football Association has now confirmed that the match has been called off.
