The search is on for Havering’s Good Neighbours
The search for ‘Good Neighbours’ in Havering, has been launched by the Havering Over 50s Forum.
Lead by Cllr Pam Light, the scheme, now in its fourth year, spotlights those of any age, who help and befriend the elderly.
“The forum is my particular baby as I think people who care for others, particularly the elderly, should be recognised,” said Cllr Light.
The launch was at the Queen’s Theatre, in Billet Lane, Hornchurch, last Friday (March 29), with Upminster MP Angela Watkinson and Deputy Mayor, Cllr Lynden Thorpe.
Sanders Draper School Signing Choir and another choir at the other end of the age scale, The Dawn Chorus, entertained.

“People can nominate anyone who has been a good neighbour to an elderly person, “ said Cllr Light.
“Age does not matter, it can be eight to eighty, it is the deed they performed that deserves the recognition.”
