 to Whitton residents.
On Wednesday 12th March Whitton welcomed the Conservative London Mayor, Boris Johnson. Visiting to inspect the progress of the Uplift Programme, part funded through the Mayor's own Outer London Fund, he expressed his satisfaction with the regenerative works which have transformed the High Street.

The Mayor was met with large crowds of Whitton residents keen to speak to him and in his own indomitable style he sought to converse with everyone. He also took time out to meet with shop owners including Nix Flower Shop, Action Bikes and Ultralux.

Before leaving Whitton Councillor Gareth Elliott and candidate Grant Healy took the opportunity to highlight the state of Whitton station to the Mayor and sought his support in furthering its renewal and refurbishment.
