My Week by Cllr. Steve Curran 2019

27 - 31 May

Hello everyone, it’s been a very quiet week for some as it is half term. I know many of you will still be working hard during the break.  

Last Saturday, I joined the Mayor of Hounslow, Cllr Tony Louki and Ruth Cadbury, MP for Brentford and Isleworth at the Polish Heritage Day. It was a fantastic community event held in Lampton Park, well done to everyone!

I wish I had won this beautiful cake!

On Sunday, I went down to the Election Count at Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre to check if everything was okay. I would like to thank all the count staff and the elections team for all their hard work on the count.

In Hounslow, the Labour Party topped the poll. In other parts of London this was not the case. Results for Hounslow can be found here. The London-wide results can be found here.

Wednesday, I attended a meeting with Cllr Sue Sampson, Ward Councillor for Isleworth and a Senior Planning Officer to meet representatives from the Syon Estate to discuss a range of matters including the Park Road Allotments. Cllr Sampson and I felt that it was a productive meeting. Further meetings will take place with the Syon Estate representatives.

After the committee meeting, I was invited by Shafiq Rehman, General Secretary of Hounslow Jamia Masjid, to be interviewed on Ramadan Radio. A range of questions were asked, including questions around Housing and Parking.

On Thursday, the Mayor of London announced the launch of his largest fund for small and medium enterprises. You can find out more about the funding here.

I attended the Affordable Housing Committee, you can find out more about what was discussed here.

It was an excellent start to the Cricket World Cup for England as they breezed through South Africa in their opening match on Thursday. England won by a comfortable one hundred and four runs bowling the Proteas all out for two hundred and seven. England face Pakistan on Monday 3 June.

I’m hoping for back to back wins from the boys!

Tomorrow, I will be attending the official opening of The Brentford Project. I’ve waited 25 years for this day! They will be hosting a range of activities for all ages over the summer. You can find out more about the Brentford Project online.

After the opening of the Brentford Project, I will be making my way down to Twickenham Stadium to watch the Gallagher Premiership Rugby final between Exeter Chiefs and Saracens. Kick off is at 3pm. There will be congestion on and around the roads leading to and from the stadium, if you are travelling tomorrow please make sure you plan alternative routes.

Lastly, the weather is due to warm up over the weekend especially on Saturday, which is going to be a scorcher, so if you are going to be out catching the rays please make sure you are putting on sun cream and staying hydrated.
