COMMUNITY & HERITAGE TAPESTRY PROJECT
Our tapestry panels, completed by friends and neighbours of the Uxbridge Centre celebrating our community and heritage, were exhibited in Uxbridge Library 23rd May - 6th June.
We put together a quiz based on the display and of 18 entries, the top scorer was Alyssa, aged 9 and a half who wins £20 :-)
Well done Alyssa and we hope everyone that visited the exhibition enjoyed the local art.

Crime Prevention Panel.
You may be aware that Hillingdon Borough has an active crime prevention panel that is run by community volunteers. The panel is a registered charity and its objectives are to co-ordinate events and activities to support the Borough's Police Service in combating crime and disorder on the Borough. The panel is managed by an Executive Committee and holds regular meetings to discuss new ideas and funding opportunities as well as how the panel can contribute to crime prevention. At the moment there is a distinct lack of community volunteers to support the panel in helping them achieve their objectives. If you feel that you are in a position to help on a regular or even occassional basis, please contact: Julie Marshall, Room A262, London Borough Of Hillingdon, Civic Centre, Uxbridge, Middlesex, UB8 1UW. Alternatively you can ring or E-mail Julie on 01895 250639 or firstname.lastname@example.org
