Election 2014 – three Labour councillors for Thurlow Park

Labour candidates Anna, Fred and Max are honoured and privileged to have been elected to Lambeth Council. We are humbled and will work hard to support residents, their concerns and continue the excellent work of former councillor Ann Kingsbury who has worked tirelessly for the people of Thurlow Park ward.

Supporting the Portuguese community

Max, Anna and Fred met with the local the Portuguese Socialist Party in Norwood and discussed a number of issues impacting upon the local Portuguese community.

Meeting at Cafe Castelo we spoke with the owner, members of the Portuguese community and Alcino Francisco, leader of the Portuguese Socialist Party in London.

We will continue to support the Portuguese community in Thurlow Park and the wider West Norwood area and hope to build ever closer links with other groups in the ward over the coming months and years.

Deronda triangle CPZ

Thurlow Park ward Labour candidates (Max, Anna and Fred) have been working with residents of the Deronda Triangle Area Residents’ Association to support their work as they call upon the Mayor and Council to reduce the controlled parking hours from 10 hours (08:30 – 18:30) to 2 hours a day. Alongside residents we have been collecting signatures and making residents aware of the petition.

Parking is one of the many traffic related issues we hear about on the doorstep as we talk to residents. Since 2010 Labour have made a unprecedented capital investment in upgrading and improving Lambeth’s highways. Over 140 roads and pavements have beneffited from almost £50m worth of works. We will go further in the next four years and have committed to tackling pot holes and cracked and uneven pavments along more than 130 miles of roads and pavements.
