NP53 reaches you in time to consider who you might vote for at the forthcoming elections. We argue the choice might be difficult, but urge people to participate. Don't leave your future in the hands of people who feel they can ignore you and your family's needs and wishes. Look out for candidates who are responsive to the electorate - the people who pay their wages, after all! If you are concerned about the amount of high rise flats being proposed for our borough's town centres along the Uxbridge Road and the wholesale sale of council estates, then the NP Housing Special is for you. Or are you looking for some active pastime? We carry a Sports Directory this time - look for your sport in our centre pages.
There is a lot more inside as well, so download the latest issue now.
