Over the past few weeks Jon Cruddas MP has been liaising with residents regarding an ongoing issue with the Multi Faith Cemetery situated on Upminster Road North. Residents have informed Jon about large dust settlements on houses and cars, taking over gardens and even effecting the health of many residents. 

After making representation to both Havering Council and R.E.D Landscapes Jon has finally received an up to date response which has also been hand delivered to residents of neighbouring roads by R.E.D Landscapes themselves. 

 

On Saturday 25th January, the Faith & Belief Forum will be delivering a free one-day training to young leaders (aged 18-30) working and/or living in Barking and Dagenham. 

The day will be a chance to explore the themes of identity, types of leadership and experiences of living in and/or working in the borough with other young leaders from different backgrounds. Attendees will then create a map of the skills, strengths and resources you and your community already have.   

Last week local Village Ward Councillors Margaret Mullane, and Philip Waker visited the new food bank and community centre – The Save and Serve Christ Family Church, to find out more and meet the faith organisations behind the new project.

The charity arm of Save and Serve Christ Family Church (COD) is just one of many churches in the Dagenham and Rainham constituency that make the effort to create a sense of community and comfortability for residents within the area.
