The Mayor extended his best wishes to all members and officers for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2023.
Members were informed that Slough was currently hosting the Knife Angel - a 9 metre tall monument made out of 100,000 knives. A number of
knife crime intervention sessions for year 6 and 7 students, talking about the choices and consequences of carrying a weapon, had been delivered. The Knife Angel would remain in Slough until 31st January and Members were encouraged to visit it if they hadn’t already done so.
The Mayor informed the meeting that Slough had a Royal Visit on 17th January from His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales. His Royal Highness visited Aik Saaath - Together as One - to recognise their accomplishments working with all young people in the town, regardless of their faith or background.
