, pupils and councillors in Kingsbury have joined forces to set up a new community group, a local news report has said.
According to the Willesden and Brent Times, North West London Citizens was launched at Kingsbury high school, located in Princes Avenue, aiming to bring diverse communities across north-west London together.
"The aim is to develop partnerships within this group so the different individual groups could work together in achieving a goal," Thomas Owoo, a teacher at Kingsbury high school, who has helped create the citizens group, was quoted as saying by the publication.
Other branches of London Citizens have already been launched in other areas of London and have achieved a series of important breakthroughs, including ethical guarantees written into the bid for the 2012 Olympic Games.
In other news, 12 communities are poised to be financially rewarded for their efforts to promote environmentalism in their local areas, with schools set to be one of the main recipients.
