Communities Minister Lord Bourne's visit to the Sundial Centre

We were pleased to welcome Communities Minister Lord Bourne to the borough to see our innovative Welcome to Tower Hamlets programme that supports new migrants and refugees. The visit was at the Sundial Centre in Bethnal Green. The minister was welcomed by our Deputy Mayor, Councillor Sirajul Islam and they both enjoyed meeting a group of local residents who were busy learning English.
