Covid rates in London are still very high. Please follow NHS advice to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus. Information and how to get vaccinated is on Camden Council’s coronavirus web page and Westminster Council’s coronavirus web page.
Ahead of the local council elections on Thursday 5 May we have a full list of the candidates to serve Fitzrovia on Camden and Westminster councils. See our two stories below. In our next newsletter we will have more news about the local elections.
A former Conservative councillor for the West End ward is now supporting the Labour candidates. “I don’t think anyone could endorse the Tories right now either at national or local level”, said Glenys Roberts on Twitter.
There are two election hustings next week:
Save Museum Street: Hustings for Bloomsbury, Holborn and Covent Garden wards. St George’s Church, Bloomsbury Way, 7pm, Monday 25 April 2022. No need to book. Save Museum Street April leaflet (pdf).
The Soho Society, Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association, and Marylebone Association: Hustings for the West End ward, 6pm to 10pm, Thursday 28 April 2022. Places must be booked in advance. Tickets here.
