Letter to Sophie Linden on MOPAC.

October 12, 2017


The Police are under a lot of pressure right now, not least in London. The pattern of crime is changing and of course, the terrorist risk has escalated. Police numbers across London have in fact remained relatively stable, as has the cash that the Met receives. However they continue to have to find efficiencies, and the Mayor /MOPAC are consulting on a new strategy around police stations, which in the modern world are rarely accessed by the public.

I recently met with Sophie Linden, London’s Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime. Please click below to read the letter I wrote to her regarding MOPAC.

Visit to RAFT 2017

We have wonderful charities on the Mount Vernon site.

It was a great pleasure to visit both Michael Sobell Hospice, and RAFT, who do extraordinary work to help rebuild lives after major trauma.

Pinner Village Show

The Pinner Village Show this year was blessed with much better weather than last year, and I was delighted to open it again.

The Rotary Club deserve great credit for organizing it and it was good to see such big crowds.
