I WOULD like to say thank you to the people of Harrow for signing our pledge in record numbers.
Over 650 people said they would speak up or do something if they saw a disabled person being treated unfairly.
That's a fantastic result and one I'm very proud of.
We've seen recently what happens in areas where people do not support and look out for each other and I'm delighted we have a strong sense of community spirit.
During the summer our shop - the Scope charity shop, in Station Road, Harrow - asked people to come in and sign our pledge.
The pledge enabled people to take a small step to make a big difference to disabled people's lives by committing to do something or complain if they see a disabled person being treated unfairly.
For example, speaking up if a restaurant or shop is not accessible for wheelchair users.
The people of Harrow can give themselves a big pat on the back as they have clearly demonstrated their community spirit and commitment to fairness and equality.
