Taking local Hampstead and Kilburn heroes to Parliament

Ed Miliband recently invited MPs and Parliamentary Candidates from across the country to take our unsung heroes along to a reception in Parliament. Glenda Jackson and I were delighted to have the chance to thank some of our fantastic community activists.We were joined by community stalwarts Mr and Mrs Perrin (Kingsgate Community Centre), Sue Measures (Sidings Community Centre), Tina Ramdeen (Granville), Avril Mackintosh (KTRA) and Rukhsana Chishti (West Hampstead Women’s Centre). It was such a brilliant success that Ed Miliband said he will be hosting another one shortly so I hope to take along more of our wonderful activists.

The whole event really brought home to me how much hard work and dedication lies behind so many of the successful initiatives across our community.
