I will ensure Brent and Harrow plays its role to make London the ‘Most Active City’.
London Sport are currently running a campaign to get a million more Londoners active. I'll campaign to make sure Brent and Harrow does its bit in having more local people active.
I have personally connected with running groups across Brent and Harrow. I have run with Park Run groups in both Brent and Harrow. I will work with grassroots groups to get more people healthy and active and support them with funding bids to help improve their sustainability.
I have led the development of outdoor gyms across parks in Brent. Now no resident lives more than a mile away from one. I also set up free fitness sessions in Brent parks and open spaces prior to and following the lockdown period.
Covid-19 has highlighted the importance of staying well both physically and mentally. I created an outreach programme being taken forward by the Brent Public Health team to give tips and advice to communities on diet, physical activity and staying well mentally. I will continue to campaign locally on these issues.
