Harrow Observer November 1 2012 edition
THIS week's Observer is a celebration of local heroes with the full round-up of the winners and nominees from the Harrow's Heroes 2012 awards.
The council-run awards, of which the Observer is a partner, commends the true stars in our community who give up hours of work on a daily basis volunteering to support our groups and good causes.
Other local heroes are in the spotlight this week at the unveiling of a local photographer's 60 Faces exhibition at Harrow Museum. But you will have to see the paper to find out who is featured.
We also have the verdict returned by the coroner on the tragic death of a mother and her five children in Brent which rocked the community and has been described as the worst house fire in London in the last decade.
In Brent, the Observer brings you the latest news on the library campaign and reveals the cost of the consultation into the future of hospital services in North West London, affecting patients in Harrow and Brent.
Read an in-depth feature in the Observer about the Royal British Legion's poppy making factory and also for listings on where fireworks displays are happening near you to mark Guy Fawkes' Night.
In sport, we bring you a round-up from the youth football scene and the latest rugby results. Make sure you look out for the launch of the Observer's Toy Appeal 2012, in which we are collecting readers’ gifts to distribute to children at Northwick Park Hospital.
This year we have the backing of a Harrow-born Olympian star and we are calling on our generous readers to get involved and support our appeal. All this and more -- in a shop near you for 70p.
