As Wembley Stadium welcomes the Euro 2020 football tournament this month, no doubt we’ll see flags from across the continent go up in windows and front gardens. All in the spirit of good-natured competition, of course! I hope you’ll enjoy our round-up of Brent businesses cheering on their national team.
That’s what I love about Brent – we are a wonderful melting pot of people with different backgrounds and experiences.
Throughout all the turbulence and heartbreak of the last year, we continued to find common ground, to build each other up and to rally behind one other when it’s most needed. This sense of community is something we must continue to nurture and never take for granted.
In May, tragedy unfolded once again in the Middle East. I condemn the violence and pray for peace. My heart goes out to all of the ordinary people, both in Palestine and Israel, who are paying the price. Sadly, some have used these recent events as an excuse to spread hatred – there is no excuse.
As we come back together this summer, to enjoy the Euros, or the culture that’s on offer (p.14) or simply sitting round a table again with loved ones, let’s celebrate community and the things we have in common.
And while we’re thinking of others, I urge you to get vaccinated when it’s your turn. By doing our bit as individuals, we can protect those around us.
