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