We are sad at Thurlow Labour to say goodbye to Thurlow Park Ward but on 5 May it turns into West Dulwich Ward. You can find the new ward boundaries which were agreed by the local boundary commission here.
If you live in the new West Dulwich ward you will be represented by two Councillors. Thursday 5 May are the local elections – please check your polling station here as it may have changed from last time.
On Thursday 5 May please vote for your Labour and Cooperative Candidates Judith Cavanagh and Fred Cowell.
In West Dulwich it’s a straight fight between the Tories and Labour and the Tories are fighting hard – send the government a message and elect two hardworking local champions.
Everyday we meet residents worried about the cost of living: increasing bills for food, energy, transport and rent. Unlike the Tories, the Labour Party has a costed plan to tackle the cost of living, starting with a tax on energy companies to take £600 off energy bills. Lambeth Labour will do everything we can to help – for example thousands of low-income households in Lambeth pay no council tax and we’re investing in programmes to tackle holiday hunger locally.
In West Dulwich, we are taking the climate emergency seriously, planting more trees, creating new green spaces, making walking and cycling safer, tackling speeding and congestion, and campaigning for better public transport. We have campaigned for better public transport, will fight for the restoration of bus and train services, we will expand cycle lanes and build more pedestrian crossings.
I’ve worked in senior roles for charities campaigning on UK child poverty, climate and economic justice. I have children in local state schools and am passionate about ensuring West Dulwich is a neighbourhood with opportunities for all children, safe for women and young people and a tidier, pleasant environment for all with less pollution, safer cycling and free of flytipping.
It’s been the honour of my life to represent Thurlow Park ward as your Councillor since 2014 and to be your candidate for the new West Dulwich ward in 2022. I have been proud to help with the development of West Norwood and to fight for better housing, safer cycling and improvements in Brockwell Park, like the refurbishment of Brockwell Hall. By day I’m a senior lecturer in law, specialising in human rights law, and parent of a child at a local nursery.
