Hackney's Borough Commander Guest at Tawhid Boys School Sports Day.

I had informed the Hackney Today about this event last year, but it seems that this was not relevant news at that time and as always they had their usual Labour Spin and propaganda to publish. Anyway here is the original submission.

Hackney’s Borough Commander and his officers proved themselves a big success at the Tawhid Boys School Sports Day, which was held on Wednesday the 04th July 2007 at the Spring Hill Playing Fields off Spring Hill Road, E5.

Steve Dann was invited to the Sport’s Day by Councillor Dawood Akhoon of Cazenove Ward, who is a member of the School’s Development Committee and also a member of the IAG (Independent Advisory Group) for the Metropolitan Police. The Borough Commander and his team met students, teachers, parents and other members of the school’s management committee. 120 boys from both the junior and senior school took part in various sports events. Medals and prizes were handed out to the student’s by the Borough Commander.
Chief Superintendent, Steve Dann, said “I was pleased and honoured to be invited to such a fun filled event, the students played hard, but more importantly fairly and really deserved the medals”
Cllr Dawood Akhoon added, “It’s really great to see our Borough Commander taking part in community event’s such as this, everyone at the event had a wonderful day”
Other guest’s who attended the day were, Eusoof Amerat who is a lead IAG member, PC Halil Huseyin who is Hackney’s Borough Faith & Community Liaison Officer. PS Maurice Hutchinson for the Cazenove Safer Neighbourhood Team and PCSO Osman Qureshi,
The event was sponsored and catered for by PC Foods UK Limited of Argall Avenue, London E10.

A Heartfelt thanks to all who attended and made the event such a success.

This event once again displayed the true generosity and caring spirit of the people of Hackney. This is what makes me so proud to live in Hackney and be part of this great varied community. Thanks once again and please do not allow the plight of the people of Burma to be forgotten.
