Newman Catholic College pupils and a group of residents from the Willesden Health Centre will hold regular meetings together
Students in Harlesden will be meeting with their elders in a series of meetings aimed at bringing together young and old.
Newman Catholic College pupils and a group of residents from the Willesden Health Centre will hold regular meetings to discuss issues facing the area.
The first meeting explored the problems facing local buses and the behaviour of passengers and was set-up by PCSO Andy Stracey of Brent Safer Transport Team
Susan Grace, assistant principle at NCC said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for breaking down barriers between young and old, which I hope will continue and work positively to remove the many misconceptions they may have of each other.
You may also want to watch:
Many of our students do not have grandparents living in this country so for many of them this was a new experience, which they really enjoyed.”
The next meeting will be on May 22.
