Lynne Featherstone last week visited the Cypriot Community Centre in Wood Green, to speak to users of the centre.
The Centre provides a range of services including a lunch club, meals on wheels, classes, training and advice services. The Centre also runs the Cypriot elderly & disabled group, which provides day care.
During the visit, the MP for Hornsey and Wood Green discussed the upcoming elections and her current local campaigns, including work she is doing to promote unity within Haringey.
As part of this campaign, the Liberal Democrat MP is visiting local community centres, religious institutions, youth groups and more – to discuss finding solutions to extremism and to promote unity and community cohesion, in response to incidents like the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
The local residents at the centre backed the local MP’s approach – agreeing that keeping in touch and having conversations is the best way to alleviate tensions and prevent division in society.
Lynne Featherstone MP commented
“I have visited the Cypriot Community Centre on a number of occasions – and I’m always so impressed by the services provided for local residents.
“The managers at the centre do a fantastic job and are so inclusive – it’s exactly what you want from a community organisation. I really enjoyed visiting and discussing the issues of the day with local residents!”
