Following a reception at the Civic Centre, the High Sheriff was taken to visit the DAISY Project at Princess Alexandra Hospital, where staff delivered a presentation on the service, she then went on to visit the Harlow Council Community Safety Team. She met with team members and also visited the kennels where the team’s working dogs are housed.
The tour ended with a trip to the Harlow Islamic Centre on Paringdon Road, where the High Sheriff met with community leaders and took a tour of the centre, before returning to the Civic Centre to meet with members of the Harlow Youth Council.
Commenting on her visit to Harlow, the High Sheriff said: “Having attended the Spring Domestic Abuse Conference held by Harlow Council, I was delighted to visit the DAISY Project at Princess Alexandra Hospital and hear more about its work from the practitioners themselves.
“As the Queen’s representative for law and order in Essex, I was very pleased to hear about the work of the Community Safety Team and enjoyed meeting the Rangers with their German Shepherd dogs.
“I was received at Harlow Islamic Centre with a wonderful welcome and warm hospitality and was most grateful for the opportunity to learn about the religion and culture of Islam. Finally, it was a great pleasure for me to meet members of Harlow Youth Council: wonderful young people with high aspirations. I would like to thank the team at Harlow Council very much for arranging such a varied and informative day for me.”
