Borough Life

Borough Life is delivered three times a year to 130,000 households in the borough. Each edition is packed with news and features about the council and its public service partners as well as community activities and upcoming events.


Summer 2020

In this edition we recognise and celebrate the tremendous efforts of the borough during the last few months. As we continue to tackle Covid-19, we pay tribute to our key workers and volunteers who have gone above and beyond to support our most vulnerable residents. We also share a small selection of the acts of kindness and look at how we’ll move forward with our recovery. 

We’d love to hear what you think of the magazine. Please email Borough Life with any feedback or if you have an idea for a story.
