Gaelic club is a diamond

A Ggaelic games club is celebrating its 50th birthday and are calling on old members to get in touch.

Fr Murphy's GAA Club London, of Kilburn, has been keeping traditional Irish games alive since 1958.

The team is holding a special reunion banquet to celebrate the occasion and is inviting members past and present to attend.

Michael Sills from Fr Murphy's, said: "We are hoping that many members, players and spectators from every era will be able to come along and as a result renew old friendships."

The celebrations take place on November 15 at the Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood Broadway, Cricklewood.

Tickets are £35 and must be booked in advance.

To buy a ticket or for more information call 07812821926.

Roads are spick and span

Streets in the borough are the fourth cleanest in London, an independent inspection has shown.

No litter, stones, grit, dirt, graffiti or flyposting were found in 87 per cent of Brent's streets by Capital Standards/ENCAMS inspectors between April to July.

Street cleanliness has increased by 20 per cent from April 2007, when a new waste and cleaning service was introduced, costing £2.1 million a year.

Before the contract the council was 17th in the table for London.

Crime map on the web

Crime hotspots close to home can be monitored online after police chiefs set up a special website.

Although only in the testing stage the Metropolitan Police's crime mapping site allows people to type in their postcode and see if they live in an area

of high, average or low crime compared to the rest of the capital.

Areas of high crime are marked in red, those above average in red, areas of average crime in yellow, below average in light blue and low in dark blue.

Information on the site is currently only limited to offences of burglary, robbery and vehicle crime but is scheduled to compliment current crime statistics which are published monthly on a ward and borough basis.

The system is set for an official launch in September after bugs have been ironed out.
