Just one Uptown Funk into this concert and the audience is in foot-tapping thrall.

Seven years after Stratford International station opened, it is time to bring international rail services to Newham.

There has been a street market at Canning Town for over 200 years. In the ‘60s and ‘70s Rathbone Market was one of London’s leading street markets. Sadly in more recent times the market has declined, reduced in size and lost customers as Canning Town itself has experienced immense change. However, the decline has been halted and Rathbone is now entering a new phase of growth and development.

Those who don’t live in Newham might be surprised to learn that one of the highlights of our social calendar is a celebration of the life and work of the Scottish poet Robert Burns - but we have a number of proud Scots in our midst, few prouder than our Mayor, Sir Robin Wales, who led the tributes and the dancing at our Burns’ Supper recently.

Alfa Mist claims to have amassed one million listens of his EP Nocturne on Soundcloud

He’s a music producer, rapper – and even a self-taught jazz pianist – but Alfa Mist seems humble about his talents.

David Cameron, once again, targeted Muslim women, by attacking their lack of English speaking skills.

Holocaust Memorial Day falls this week. Its theme is, Don’t Stand By.

We’ve got a very exciting year ahead at the park and, as usual, there are lots of ways for Newham residents to get involved.

From the Dambusters to the Great Escape, there are many great stories of wartime heroes.

On Wednesday, January 27 we will gather at Stratford Town Hall to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. We will light candles to remember those who lost their lives to the sickening atrocities of Nazi persecution and commemorate the liberation in 1945 of the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Newham has the youngest population in England and we want to make sure that children and young people are able to easily access and use health and wellbeing services in the borough.

Annie Leibovitz unveils her latest 'Women New Portraits' collection [photos: Vickie Flores]

An exhibition by world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz begins its global tour in London’s East End on Saturday.

Her Women New Portraits show opens to the public for the first time at Wapping, running for three weeks at the historic Hydraulic Power Station, before it starts its global tour.

I’d like to begin by wishing everyone in east London a very happy new year.

Many will welcome the decision by our Newham MPs not to support Cameron’s plans to bomb Syria.

America is up in arms about arms. Iranian Shias and Saudi Sunnis are at each others’ throats.

For me the start of each New Year always brings renewed energy, enthusiasm and hope for all.

The warm glow of Christmas and New Year festivities, and wonderful time spent with family and friends, brighten the inevitable dark and cold of January.

Happy New Year! 2015 has been a fantastic year on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and I hope you enjoyed all the park has to offer.
