HAVING gathered so much support in such a short space of time it is clear that Trinity in Harrow is as popular as ever despite its recent problems.
It is the only place in Harrow that stays open until the early hours and one of few venues that hosts live music on a regular basis.
There is clearly a fear among people in Harrow that if it were to lose its late licence the town centre would become a ghost town at weekends.
The other potential problem that could come with an earlier closure is binge drinkers consuming greater amounts in a shorter period of time - which may well cause more trouble.
Drinking pubs are always likely to encounter some problems, but when pubs are closing more regularly in the recession than ever before, reducing the hours to one that maintains its popularity would surely be a step in the wrong direction.
Replace lift now
TO LEAVE the solitary lift in a warden-controlled block of flats broken for almost a week is very worrying.
The lack of a working lift at Grange Court in Northolt Road, South Harrow, left residents on the first and second floors effectively trapped on their landing because they struggle with stairs.
Perhaps Harrow Council needs to replace both as a matter of urgency.
