New Council leader, Cllr Sachin Shah, is taking a tour of the borough, meeting residents across “all corners” of the borough (South Harrow being notably absent from his itinerary at the moment) in coming months. Dedicating two hours to each walkabout, eight lucky residents per month will be able to meet the leader, and discuss issues and concerns with him on a one-on-one basis.
You can meet the leader at the following locations, however, you do need to book an appointment first: this is, presumably, so you can either be vetted for community activism, or to ensure there’s no crowds of people ambushing him about bin problems.
Thursday 26 May, 10am to 12pm
30-40 High Street, Wealdstone, Harrow HA3 7AU
St Albans Church
Tuesday 28 June, 6pm to 8pm

It was, of course, just over a year ago when Cllr David Perry started the walkabouts, which went badly wrong on his first night out when he turned up to the community hall only to find the door still padlocked.
