Over the last week or so, we have selected our candidates in Fieldway, New Addington and Woodside, the three wards in Croydon Central that do not currently have Conservative councillors.
In Woodside, we have selected Mark Johnson, Michael O'Dwyer and Serife Du'ven. Mark lives on Portland Road, Michael on Adams Way and Serife just over the border in Ashburton.
In New Addington, we have selected Tony Pearson and Rob Hughes. Unlike Labour's candidates who live in Kenley and Sanderstead, both have strong New Addington connections - Tony lives on Queen Elizabeth's Drive and Rob grew up in New Addington and now lives just down the hill in Forestdale.
In Fieldway, we have selected Jayne Laville and Maria Pearson. Both of them live in New Addington - Maria is married to Tony and Jayne lives in Ivers Way.
Congratulations to all six of them. We have an excellent chance of winning seats in all three of these wards - in the case of Fieldway, for the first time ever.
Can I also congratulate five other members of the Croydon Central campaign team, who have been selected elsewhere in the Borough:
• Daniel Hing, Rob King and Mervyn Wint in Selhurst; and
• Kai Pokawa and Sohail Qureshi in Thornton Heath.
