Bedford Ward Panel meeting

Advise Safer Neighbourhood Teams about local community crime.

Safer Neighbourhood Ward Panels are locally based, and Metropolitan Police managed, community/police engagement and consultation groups.

The aim of Ward Panels is to advise Metropolitan Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SN Teams) about local community crime and disorder concerns which should enable SN Teams to decide promises and priorities which are intended to match community concerns.

Ward Panels are an instrumental part of local police engagement in London.

Coping with cancer stress

A free online course to help you reduce anxiety, feel calmer and more relaxed.

Paul's Cancer Support Centre in Battersea is running this new 'flexible' online course to teach relaxation and coping skills.

You can sign up for this course and start it at any time. The course is flexible so that participants can take part in 12 sessions at their own pace, when they feel well enough.

Partners, family members and carers are also encouraged to take part so they can provide support to the person with cancer and learn to deal with their own stress. Although this is an online course, participants are not expected to have advanced computer skills and there is an IT support person if anyone has any IT problems during the course.

Booking and further information

WW1 Centenary: The Half Moon Camp

Production marking the centenary of the Great War.

The Half Moon Camp will explore the story of seduction and Holy War on the Western Front. Two brothers are part of a regiment in the Lahore division - the first British-Indian army units to arrive in Europe. One brother has "gone over" (influenced by the Turkish Pasha's call for a jihad against the British) while the other brother is captured while fighting in the trenches, and is seduced by a German officer to join the jihadi battalion forming among the captured Indian soldiers - a battalion that would launch skirmishes against British lines along the Western Front.

Focusing on the dynamic between captured brother Mohammed, his traitor brother Amir and the German officer, Half Moon Camp explored notions of allegiance in a world shattered by war.
