E17 Concerts 11 & 12 Dec

The East London Brass band are running some amazing concerts in Walthamstow. They will be screening the fantastic festive masterpiece THE SNOWMAN and playing the music live. There are 5 screenings: one on Friday 11th December and 4 throughout the day on Saturday 12th December. The events are family friendly and a really great way to introduce live music to kids. It’s hard to think of anything that is more festive than a brass band and so its a combination sure to melt the hearts of even the most miserable of Grinches! Poster attached and tickets (£10 adults, £5 kids) can be purchased here: https://elb.yapsody.com/…/223…/the-snowman-east-london-brass

Independent Advisory Groups

Interested?

IAGs a group of non-police people who can:

• Provide advice and guidance to the police to help prevent critical incidents escalating (these may be external or internal incidents)

• Provide a sounding board for the police to understand the potential impact on communities of police practices and operations.

Four corporate IAGs – Race, Disability, LGBT and Trident (gangs, guns, knife crime) provide the Metropolitan Police Service with strategic advice on specific communities. Every borough has an IAG made up of citizens from the local communities, advising on local issues.
