Thank you to the angels that helped
ON the evening of April 28 I was hurrying up Station Road to get to the Hustings in St Anselm’s’s Church, Hayes, when I tripped on a paving stone and went flying, falling flat on my face, breaking my glasses and doing considerable damage to my face.
Two angels came and picked me up and guided me to the church where one of the angels, named Ann, cleaned up my blooded face and nose and put a bandage on my nose.
Then Ann, who said she was a teacher, and Paris, a young cadet, left the church.

The vice chair of South Ruislip Residents Association, Sid Jackson, mentions that Citygrove’s proposals would produce up to 530 jobs, yes, but the vast majority would be low paid shelf filler type jobs.
If more affordable homes where to be built on this site which is adjacent to excellent public transport facilities it would open up opportunities for residents to commute to jobs offering better pay and career opportunities, but then the council would not get the £2.7 million pounds promised to them by Citygrove for infrastructure work elsewhere in the borough.
