News From Barnet Alliance 4 Public Services Calendar

There's plenty going on in Barnet as we try and ensure that Barnet Council don't completely destroy the Borough in their current Slash and Burn frenzy of public services. If you want to help our council see sense, here's a few ways you can help

It’s that time of the year “knock a door run…or knock down ginger, Penny for the Guy…it Bonfire Night!”
Barnet Alliance is inviting Barnet residents, friends and relatives to make plans to come along to the Lobby. It is going to be a blast!
Wrap up well, it is likely to be cold and wet but we will have plenty of things in place to keep you all warm and in good spirits!
Hendon Town Hall from 5.45 pm – 6.45

9. Petitions

Circulate it to your friends and family. 

10. Email your local paper / Councillor

It is vital that everyone who cares about their local community makes their voice heard. That is how democracy is meant to work. If you don't tell you MP and Councillors when they get things wrong, they think they are doing a marvellous job and we can't have that can we
