Fighting for the community
Debbie Nyman, Roe Green Village Residents’ Association, writes:
How nice to open the paper and find your article on Journalism Matters and fighting for the Brent & Kilburn community.
It is without a doubt that we were indebted to Nathalie Raffray for her constant support when our fight over Powerleague was going on – it was in fact three years but nevertheless, getting it in the news and the contact Nathalie made added to the ultimate success of the campaign. Thanks very much to you and all the team at the Brent & Kilburn Times.

If you’re looking to celebrate Christmas a bit differently this year, our Charity Shop Challenge will help you think outside the box when it comes to your festive shopping.
Our high street shops and eBay and Depop stores are packed with countless unique treasures waiting to be discovered, making your gifts all the more meaningful this year.
There is also plenty of good quality furniture and homeware on offer too, if you’re giving your home a festive spruce.
Every pound raised in our shops and online stores helps us support the 670,000 people living with heart and circulatory diseases across the east of England, many of whom are at increased risk from Covid-19.
Now, more than ever, we urgently need your support this Christmas so we can continue funding life saving breakthroughs.
The BHF’s shops and stores are now back up and running, with measures in place to keep staff, volunteers and customers safe.
To get involved in the BHF’s Charity Shop Challenge, simply head to your nearest store or browse the BHF eBay shop for unique and affordable gifts. You can also share your finds on social media using the hashtag #BoughtAtBHF.
To find your nearest shop, please visit: bhf.org.uk/shop
