Mayor's Award for Newington Green Trader


Following the attack and stabbing of Mr Patel, a trader in Ferntower Road, many local people rallied around to support him. Amongst these were Cllr Joe Caluori and Nicky Southin, who was Chair of the Newington Green Action Group for many years, and they decided to nominate Mr Patel for an LBI Mayor's Civic Award.

We are pleased to say that the nomination was accepted and Mr Patel was presented with his award on Monday 11 March. You may see an image here:

NGAG Website has Been Hacked!

Apologies for the fact that this website has been down for some weeks. The website was hacked into and it has taken our volunteer Webmaster Charlotte, many hours of hard work with the help of United Web Hosting, to bring it back online.

There are still some problems to be sorted out and some pages may look odd for a while but we hope that the website will be completely functional again very soon and that you will be able to access all photos and information as before and will be able to keep up-to-date with NGAG's activities.
