Radio Harrow received a certificate of recognition from the outgoing Mayor of Harrow. On his final day as Mayor,  Krishna Suresh invited Radio Harrow’s Programming Manager, Gary Walker to his office to present him with a certificate of recognition of the station’s services to the people of Harrow.

Upon receiving the certificate Gary Walker said he felt “honoured for Radio Harrow to be recognised for its commitment to providing a health and well-being service to the Borough”. He said “the certificate is also recognition for all the hard work and dedication of each of our volunteers who give so much of their time to the charity”.

Earlier in the week, the Mayor had joined Radio Harrow’s Breakfast Show to talk about his final week in power. He took the office of Mayor in May 2015 and turned over the reigns on Thursday 19th May 2016.
