Evening Standard: Do what’s right and make the carnival safe and healing for the community

Community needs a fantastic Carnival

How sad to read the letter by Greg Hands MP to the Mayor questioning the appropriateness of Notting Hill Carnival. Has the leadership of this borough learned nothing?

The Carnival has deep resonance in the community and can provide some solace for them at this difficult time following the Grenfell Tower fire.

I have twice been a police officer at the Carnival. Kensington and Chelsea council must be committed to working with community leaders and the police to ensure the event is safe.

I have always loved the floats made by the community. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the council and the Mayor could support the creative contributions of schoolchildren and residents’ to the Carnival? It would not only add to the event but can also be an opportunity to restore a sense of well-being to those who have been affected by the Grenfell tragedy.

Let’s come together and make this year’s Carnival memorable.
