On Friday 8th July local councillors played the role of dragons in a 'Dragons Den' competition with a difference. Rather than judging business proposals from budding entrepreneurs, Barking and Dagenham councillors watched and listened to local young people pitching their ideas for community campaigns and volunteering projects.

Following the recent local elections in Barking and Dagenham Jon Cruddas MP had this to say:

Dagenham heroes named in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

A group of individuals from Barking and Dagenham have been recognised for their outstanding contributions to society, and have been named in the Queen's Birthday Honours list to receive MBE's.
