Ninety years after the end of the First World War it was incredibly uplifting to see that recognition of this country's fallen war heroes has not waned.
The borough has proved, yet again, that irrespective of age, gender or race,there is still a great appreciation of all those who have died in battle - whatever the conflict. And rightly so.
These soldiers gave their lives to enable us to have what we have today and they should never be forgotten.
It was great to see people across the borough out in force to pay their respects throughout the week, but let's hope this important tradition will continue to be observed in future.
Leaky house? That's too bad
THINGS must have got pretty desperate for Harrow's housing stock if the council is cancelling 'non-urgent' repairs until spring.
Everyone knows small problems quickly escalate if left unattended and the borough could find itself landed with still bigger bills in the future.
Also, any repair that is needed to your house feels urgent. It won't be easy to tell tenants their leaky guttering or broken internal doors are 'non-urgent'.
This is doubly true now winter has arrived in earnest.
And while it is cancelling jobs with one hand the department seems to be threatening tenants with the other,saying some tenants are responsible for a disproportionate share of repair calls and that this will be investigated.
This seems a little hostile considering some Harrow-managed properties have not had a lick of paint outdoors for nine years.
The council's leadership needs to act quickly to reassure people the situation is under control.
