Queen’s Park Day 2020 is cancelled

We are sorry to announce that we will not be holding Queen’s Park Day on Sunday 13 September 2020.  In light of the Coronavirus pandemic and the likelihood of social distancing continuing for some time into the future, we have decided that it will not be possible to go ahead with the event this year.  We send best wishes to everyone for good health and safety in the coming months.  Let’s all look forward to September 2021!

Message from the Friends of Paddington Old Cemetery

Dear Friends

Earlier this week we faced the prospect of Paddington Old Cemetery closure. From the end of this week all cemetery staff will be based at Carpenders Park and as a consequence POC was set to remain closed.

FOPOC has been in contact about this with Brent Council. The Council has agreed that from this weekend POC may remain open, if FOPOC open and close the gates and ensure everyone leaves by the normal gate time. We could consider offering a reduced opening timetable if public management becomes problematic, as may occur as the number of users increases. 

We need FOPOC members to help ensure that everyone adheres to Government guidance on safe distancing etc. If this guidance is not followed POC will be closed. So it’s up to all of us to help ensure the rules are followed – no close contact, no handshaking, we all need to be responsible. Brent will be hit hard as the virus infections accelerate, but for the moment we have somewhere we can exercise and relax. This will change if Brent feels it isn’t working.

We also need FOPOC members to assist in the “end of day closing” process. Who is able to offer an hour between 5:30 and 6:00 PM so we can create a rota.

Please help ensure everyone in POC stays responsible and safe!

Queen’s Park News – a message from our newsletter editors

We started preparing the QPARA spring newsletter just before the coronavirus emergency escalated.  Whilst we would love to have a lively QPARA newsletter popping through your letterbox in a few weeks’ time, we have decided that sadly, it does not make sense to produce one just now. The newsletter takes some time to write, design, print and distribute to your door, so we feel we it’s impossible to produce an edition with up to date content.

Please keep looking at this website for news of QPARA’s activities. We have many dedicated members who work for the good of Queen’s Park in a variety of spheres. These working groups will continue to function as best they can during this crisis.

Queen’s Park is a strong community. This is a time to make our community even stronger – and to draw on the strength that community brings.  

And look out for the next edition of the newsletter in the Autumn!

Keep safe, Editors, QPARA Newsletter (

Beautiful morning in Queen’s Park

Lots of joggers and walkers out this morning – all observing the 2 metre rule. We are very lucky to have the park to take our daily exercise in.

New local support network to help those most at risk and those self-isolating with symptoms in the QPARA area. Please contact our coordinators if you need help with shopping or can offer help. We will be delivering this leaflet door to door across the area in the next few days

Coronavirus news from Lonsdale Medical Group

The LMG Practice Manager has asked local groups to post information about changes to appointment booking because of the Coronavirus (Covid-19). LMG also serves patients previously with Blessing and Park House practices.

To protect patients from cross-infection, and keep LMG staff healthy, they are seeking to minimise face-to-face visits to the surgery. The telephone triage system successfully launched last year for same-day consultations is being extended to routine appointments as far as possible.

Full information is available on the LMG website  – which will be updated regularly as the situation evolves. But the key elements are:

  • If you think you have the symptoms of CV (a temperature above 37.8C or a new dry cough) DO NOT go to the surgery, the Urgent Care Centres or A&E; look at the online 111 site for advice  ; or if you can’t do that, call 111 (which is likely to be very busy!)
  • If you have already booked a GP appointment, DON’T go to the surgery, but wait for a Doctor to call you, to see if your issue can be resolved on the phone
  • For future appointments, please look first online (via Patient Access or any other App you use) to book a telephone call (same-day or future date) from a GP
  • Failing that, call the surgery and explain your issue briefly to one of the trained receptionists, who will book you a GP call-back (same-day or future date)
  • A face to face appointment will then be arranged if needed

LMG is also posting advice on its Facebook page (link at the bottom of the Home Page) and its website has a translate facility into dozens of languages (Translate button bottom right of the Home Page)

Stay well, everyone!

Public meeting and discussion “Health Matters: a challenge for us all” postponed

We have had the following message from our friends in Brent Patient Voice:

“With great regret BPV is postponing the public meeting and AGM we recently announced for 30 March 2020 at Harlesden. This follows careful assessment of the rapidly developing coronavirus situation. We consider that the right course now on the 11th of March is to postpone or not attend non-essential gatherings. See our website post “Coronavirus and BPV” on .

“We were greatly looking forward to hearing Sir Amyas Morse, new chair of the LNWUH Trust, and Simon Crawford, Director of Strategy. They concur with us that postponement is the right course of action and hope it will be possible to restore the event when the situation allows.”
