    A spectacle of colour and music is set to wow Hackney in November with the return of the Clissold Park fireworks display. Following last year’s sell-out success, the family-friendly celebrations will be held in Clissold Park, Stoke Newington, on Saturday 2 November. This year’s event takes place between 5pm to 9pm. Mood lighting will give the park a magical atmosphere, while street-based performances will animate the pathways around the park. There’s fun for everyone with street food stalls, bars and live music plus a children's village and sparkler zone for families. As always the display is synchronised to music. Tickets cost £7.75 for adults and £2.75 for children who live in the borough; and £8.75 and £3.75 respectively for non-residents. Tickets for the display are now available and can be purchased through Eventbrite The Council is once again giving away 400 free tickets for the event. This year the tickets will go to Hackney based charities, voluntary organisations and community groups/projects who are actively working to support local people in the borough. Organisations who would like to support their members with free tickets are invited to apply for free tickets by emailing park.events@hackney.gov.uk stating the name of the organisation, charity registration number or similar and title the email subject ‘Concessionary Tickets’. Gates open at 5.00pm and the display starts at 7.30pm. The display is 20 minutes and is suitable for all ages and the full event will close at 9pm. Some entertainment will be weather-dependant. The fireworks have been designed to generate low noise levels to ensure the welfare of the animals at Clissold Park are not affected as a result of the event. To buy tickets visit: https://hackneyfireworkdisplay2019.eventbrite.co.uk For general information regarding the display please contact Park Events Team via: park.events@hackney.gov.uk or call 020 8356 4309.

    A new tri-board strategy has been launched today to tackle modern day slavery in Hackney. The strategy will see Hackney’s Community Safety Partnership, which brings together the Council, Police, Health, Probation and other key local players; City and Hackney Safeguarding Adults Board; and City and Hackney Safeguarding Children’s Partnership, working together to tackle the cross-cutting issues linked to modern day slavery. It outlines Hackney Council and its partners’ committments to raising awareness of and protecting residents from all forms of modern slavery, including labour exploitation, domestic servitude, ***ual exploitation and criminal exploitation, through four key strategic priorities: To tackle modern slavery through strong leadership and effective partnerships To raise awareness of modern day slavery To identify and support victims of modern slavery To pursue perpetrators of modern slavery It includes taking action to improve identifying, helping and supporting those affected by modern slavery; supporting Hackney’s communities, faith and voluntary sectors to identify the signs of modern slavery and know how to report it; and using data to monitor themes, trends and patterns. Modern slavery can take many forms, including forced criminal activity such as gang-related activities and shoplifting, victims being exploited for labour or forced to work for little or no money, ***ual exploitation, and victims being forced to work in private households, who are often denied access to the outside world. If you suspect that someone is living in slavery, then it is important that you do not confront or approach them as this could cause more harm. The police should always be contacted in the first instance, on 999 in emergencies or 101 in other situations. You can also contact 0208 356 5500 or fast@hackney.gov.uk for concerns about children under 18. For concerns about adults, you can contact the Council’s Information and Assessment team on 0208 356 6262 or the Safeguarding Adults team on 0208 356 5782.

    Local MPs and council leaders met Thames Water bosses today to press them for answers on their response to the burst water main in Finsbury Park that flooded 170 homes, leaving many uninhabitable. Residents in the area, which spans Hackney and Islington, were also without power and water for hours after the incident on 8 October, with Thames Water slow to communicate and drop off emergency supplies of bottled drinking water. At the meeting, Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, Islington Council’s Executive Member for Finance, Performance and Community Safety, Cllr Andy Hull, Hackney North and Stoke Newington MP, Rt Hon Diane Abbott MP, and Islington North MP, Rt Hon Jeremy Corbyn MP, all conveyed residents’ concerns to senior Thames Water representatives, including its Chairman, Ian Marchant. In the aftermath of the flood, residents from 76 homes were placed into temporary accommodation, with some reporting they’ve had to move several times already and others unclear about what food and accommodation costs they can reclaim from the company. Anyone with outstanding questions about the flooding, including about insurance claims and how much they can claim for food and accommodation, should contact their Thames Water loss adjuster directly. Alternatively, residents can contact on-site Thames Water representatives, who will be on-site until at least Friday 25 October. If residents haven’t already reported damage, they can call Thames Water 24/7 on 0345 604 8580. The Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, has written twice to Thames Water since the floods in Finsbury Park: On 8 October, to raise concerns about water distribution, support to residents and Thames Water’s presence on the site of the flood On 14 October, regarding housing and other ongoing support for affected residents.

    Camden Council’s Cabinet has given local people the power to have their say on what their community needs in an ambitious redevelopment plan for Camley Street. At a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday evening, the Council gave the go-ahead for residents and businesses to help shape the way forward on redeveloping their community to address their needs. Now the community will get to build a new neighbourhood, with plans to build hundreds of new homes where there currently are no homes at all. A key commitment is that these will include at least half as social and living rents. This makes Camley Street Camden’s most ambitious plan for community-led development. The proposals will respond to local priorities, including the need to build safer and better connected streets, as well as more open and green spaces for families. There are more local jobs and spaces for businesses in the plans. Partnerships with the community are a key part, with the Council helping to support local people while they make the decisions about what their community needs from redevelopment. Putting the community first The Council continued its commitment to putting the community first when it comes to new development in local areas. The proposals, which include large numbers of much-need council homes, set out that the affordable homes will be the first thing that the Council builds for residents. There are also plans to build Camden Living Rent homes to help teachers, nurses and other key workers afford lower-cost housing and be part of the community. Built by Camden, for Camden Camden has made Camley Street an entirely council-owned redevelopment too, unlike many other local authority developments across the UK. There will be no private developer managing the building works so the community can be sure that they will deliver on local priorities together with the Council. Camden’s plans will also increase business space by up to 50%. Working in partnership with local employers, the Council aims to develop new industrial workshops, spaces to make and create as well as enabling an expansion of the Knowledge Quarter to further boost local jobs. This will be vital in providing jobs, including opportunities for local people to access employment through apprenticeship, placements and training. Benefits across the borough This approach to building our communities is part of Camden’s Community Investment Programme, which is building over 1,100 new council homes and 300 Camden Living Rent homes in the borough, along with new schools, community centres and facilities to support older people and people with disabilities. Over 850 homes have been delivered through the Community Investment Programme so far, as well as schools and community spaces, with schemes picking up an array of design awards along the way.

This year the event organised by Newham Council in partnership with the Royal Docks Team will be held on Saturday November 2. The stunning and historic buildings of the Royal Docks will once again form the back drop for the show, with displays choreographed to a musical soundtrack especially chosen as a celebration of the historic lunar mission of 1969. The venue at Silvertown Quays off North Woolwich Road will host the exhilarating fireworks display as well as children?s funfair rides, a range of food stalls, a bar and music courtesy of Heart FM DJ Roberto who?ll keep you dancing to beat the cold.

Guests are urged to arrive early to enjoy the other attractions that will be on site.** Entrance to the event is free and where possible visitors are encouraged to walk, cycle or use public transport to get there, as there is no on site public parking. ?
