from local young people and over a hundred market stalls, made the Hoxton Market Summer Fair and Our Homes Festival a big success. With the sun shining and

temperatures reaching over 32 degrees, hundreds of residents came along to the combined event; held on Hackney’s oldest street market. The Our Homes Festival

was developed by Hackney’s housing services, to give local tenants and leaseholders direct access to services that they need, have fun and meet their neighbours. Linking the festival with the local market aimed to support local businesses and help more people from Shoreditch and Hoxton rediscover what the market has to offer. As well as traditional fun

fair games, market stalls and live entertainment there were numerous Council and local voluntary sector stalls, giving information to residents on everything from housing repairs to recycling. Joan Huxtable, 85, from

Haggerston, said: “I am having a beautiful time, and I’m just about

to meet my

mates in the caff, I meet them every Saturday and it’s great to see the market like this. It’s a beautiful market, and it’s great to have all these activities for kids.” Cllr Clayeon McKenzie,

Cabinet Member for Housing Services was delighted with the success of the day: “The

event was a great success; there was something for everyone from chilled craft in the community garden, to a lively knees up with the Pearly Kings and Queens and listening to Hoxton radio. It was also the perfect opportunity for residents to get

information they need

from the Council while they shop and have fun under the sun. Loads of residents signed up to vote and the recycling team gave away hundreds of food waste bags. I can’t wait for the next event.”

BID for slough

Businesses in Slough have delivered a positive yes vote for the development of a Business Improvement District (BID) in Slough aimed at improving the environment to do business in Slough town centre. BID projects in Slough

fall into five categories: safe and secure; environment; market ing and events; business suppor t and representation. The package of improvements, BID supporters claim, should see an increase in customer foot fal l, dwell time and spend in the town centre, and give businesses a better opportunity to be involved in strategic planning. BID s tee r ing


Chairman Andrew Wright said: “We are delighted that businesses have recognised the difference that a BID can make to Slough Town Centre.

“Slough has such a lot

going for it and we hope the BID can be an essential part of the growth and prosperity of the town centre.” Foe the local council Cllr

Martin Carter said: “This is fantastic news for Slough and I am pleased so many businesses want to play a part in improving the town centre. “Slough like many town

centres across the UK is facing an increasingly difficult economic climate and the BID will give businesses the opportunity to help shape improvements to the High Street, which will benefit them as well as residents and visitors. “The BID is an exciting new

addition to our plan to keep the town centre clean, safe and vibrant whilst we plan for large scale regeneration.”

food business for a minimum of six months. The case fol lowed a

number of inspections of the defendant’s business resulting f inal ly

in an

Emergency Prohibi tion Notice was served to close the business temporarily due to it presenting an imminent risk to health. The court heard that during their visits Environmental

Heal th Of f icers found a lack of suitable training and supervision of staff,

of adequate food safety management systems, lack of handwashing facilities, p oor

ineffective cleaning and poor temperature control of high- risk foods. Speaking after the case

Cllr Patrick Hogan said: “In South Bucks, most


businesses have either good or very good food hygiene ratings. Environmental Health Officers work with businesses to help them improve if they fall below this standard. As this case demonstrates, legal action is only a last resort when the business has failed to follow advice to improve hygiene standards, in order to prevent members of the public being put at risk.”
