Cuts: Zain Textiles of Shepherd's Bush on BBC

Zain Textiles of Uxbridge Road, a business that has been running for 17 years, was featured on last nights BBC London News which you can watch here. It tells the story not only of how the economic crisis has affected the business, which is expected to downsize by 50% but also the youngsters of the family who in one csse is losing a youth centre courtesy of cuts from the Council as well. Tough times ahead in recession Bush.

Thursday UPDATE: It's been pointed out to me that the youth centre that has been closed and that was featured in the BBC piece was actually not in our Borough and therefore has nothing to do with our Council. The centre is in Barnet apparently. Happy to clarify...

  1. What a shame. I think that the Middle Eastern culture here is mainly overlooked - excellent shops, great produce and no mock Shisha cafes. We should highlight what this area has to offer and H&FC should do the same.
