Have your say on future of Harrow’s libraries

Harrow Council is consulting residents on the future of libraries in the borough, which include joining forces with Ealing Council.

The council wants to hear your views on all aspects of the library service including opening hours, IT and other facilities, and the type of books available to borrow.

Questionnaires will be available in all libraries and well as online or residents can attend one of four consultation roadshows.

The council is planning to work with Ealing Council to provide some services as part of efforts to save money.

Plans also include the introduction of wi-fi in all libraries and investigating the potential for a new town centre library that would bring together facilities at Gayton and the Civic Centre libraries all on one site.

Find out more here or fill in the online questionnaire here.

New trees for Rosslyn

Two new trees have been planted in Rosslyn Crescent with two more to come.

All four trees were paid for by Greenhill ward councillor Sue Anderson from her budget for community projects.

They are the latest trees to be planted as part of HCRA’s ongoing tree campaign, which has seen more than 30 new trees planted in our three roads over the past few years.
