Comment on this story on the

The Borough of Hounslow has sucessfully submitted a bid to carry out 5 community involvment days across the borough from a fund made available by Criminal Justice Board and needs your help.

Community Cashback is a new scheme in England and Wales which gives local people a say in how 4million of recovered criminal assets (for example confiscated cash or property) should be spent in their communities.

Cllr Paul Fisher, the council’s executive member for communities - engagement & safety, said: “Community Cashback offers an excellent opportunity for us to respond directly to the communities’ needs, so I really encourage people to have their say on the local projects they believe would benefit from this fund.“Please make sure you have a say in how this money is invested in our future by registering your vote and supporting our bid.”

5 locations in Hounslow have been identified, one in each sector and all with the same aim, to improve community centres and youth facilities. This is an area identified by the local community that they would like to see addressed to improve community cohesion.

Please vote to ensure our local schemes go ahead. Go to Community Cashback, scroll down to Community Involvement Days, click on it to select, scroll down to the bottom of the page, enter your email if you wish, and click on the 'Have Your Say' button. It's not the simplest of pages. You have a week to register your vote as the deadline is the 18th September.

The five proposals for Hounslow are:-

Rose Community Centre, Brentford.
This centre was subjected to an arson attack, the centre is used by a local nursery group, elderly residents and youths, it is the hub of this local community, and is an integral part of the community. Internal and external painting.

The Southville Centre
This centre is used by many different members of the community, the reason we are looking to rejuvenate this centre is it is used by young carers as a place to get respite, we believe they deserve a place that is clean and welcoming. Internal and external painting.

Sutton Bowls/Cricket Club
Numerous reports have been received over the last 6 months regarding this building it has been abandoned for some time and is being used by local undesirables as a place to hang. We would like to make the area safe and secure so that the land can be used again by local residents.

Kingsley Road Youth Centre
This centre is used by a wide variety of youths across our community, Hounslow African and Asian Youth Association [HAAYA] are based at this youth centre and offer invaluable advice for youths from ethnic minorities. Internal and external painting.

Dukes Meadow play area
The play area is in need of updating, there has been major regeneration of Dukes Meadow over the years working with Friends of Dukes Meadow who have raised funds to carry out repairs however they have run out of funding to tackle the play area.

In fact, Dukes Meadow have all the funding they need for the new play area and the work has actually started. Congratulations to Dukes Meadows Trust but please still vote for Brentford for the remaining projects in need.
