It is Referendum Day today in Great Britain. People are voting for or against the alternative vote system, which is the way they prefer elections to be conducted in the future.
This blog has obviously nothing to do with the essence of the Referendum, but it is important to report that our Church Hall is used once more as a Polling Station.
It is certainly our duty as Community to offer assistance to the local Council (The London Borough of Harrow) in organising the Referendum.
I must emphasize and underline the good co-operation we always have with the Elections’ Officers that are in charge of this Polling Station, as well as with all voters from the neighbourhood that come to vote in our premises.
At the back of our new Church, next to our Vicarage, there is a good size area, which is used as our Church / Community garden.
This area was not used a lot lately and it needed some good attention.
Thanks to sponsorship from Dr. Serafim and Mrs. Andri Kiriakidis, who are in charge of St. Panteleimon Educational Services Ltd. and St. Panteleimon Nursery School, this garden has now been cleaned and is getting a new grass as well as a new wooden fence.
This garden area will be eventually used as an outdoor play area for the kids of the Nursery, and it will also be available to the members of our congregation for recreation purposes.
Most of the works have now been completed. The plumbers are seen on this picture working in the front Church yard. The new fence has now been ordered and will be put in place soon. The flags are flying high.
