Neighbourhood patrols will be out in force this Easter weekend to deter and prevent anti-social behaviour and keep parks clean in Brent. 

Officers will be in Roundwood, Gladstone and King Edward VII parks as the Rule of Six returned to outdoor spaces yesterday.

Covid guidelines have eased allowing two households, or six people, to meet outdoors.

In line with government guidelines, tennis courts will be reopened for bookings and multi-use games areas opened.

Formally organised parent and child groups can now take place outdoors for up to 15 people; under fives are not counted.
