The Ilford Salvation Army, based in Clements Road, hosted an accountability assembly with councillors, attended by members of Redbridge Citizens.

The group is the borough’s branch of TELCO - The East London Communities Organisation.

The event was attended by Cllr Keith Prince, leader of Redbridge Council, Cllr Ian Bond, leader of the Liberal Democrats and deputy leader of the council, and Cllr Wes Streeting, Labour’s deputy leader.

Cllr Jas Athwal, leader of Labour, had been invited but was unable to attend, so Cllr Streeting went in his place.

The councillors were asked to speak for two minutes on issues deemed as priorities by Redbridge Citizens and its members.

They also had an opportunity at the end of the event to speak about the merits of their respective parties and why people should vote for them on May 22.
