October has been a busy month. For three large communities we have in Brent, it’s been a time of celebration and new beginnings; the Jewish New Year was at the end of September and the Hindu New Year and Islamic New Year were both last week. ‘Happy New Year’ to all those who celebrated.
August is a month that looms large in most teenagers’ diaries. It’s a month of extreme emotions – ecstasy at seeing all your hard work rewarded by good grades and university places or disappointment at not getting what you wanted.
July has been another sweltering month. It’s great to see so many residents and staff enjoying the parks and open spaces in Brent; the borough really is buzzing in the summer. To complement the outdoor summer sizzle, we are pushing ahead on a number of important projects.
Along with iconic buildings like The Shard and the London Aquatics Centre, Brent Civic Centre has won a 2014 RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) National Award. This award means that the Brent Civic Centre is now in the running for The Stirling Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in the Architectural world.
