A well deserved honour

Delighted to see that Labour Councillor Brenda Kirby has been awarded an MBE in the New Year's Honours List - it's richly deserved. Brenda and I obviously have our differences politicallly but she's a tireless advocate for her constituents and for New Addington.

She will be sorely missed when she stands down from the Council in May, both by the people of New Addington and even more I suspect by the Labour Party. The fact that she isn't standing again gives us an excellent chance of picking up seats - particularly given that Labour's two candidates live in Sanderstead and Kenley whereas Tony and Rob both have strong New Addington connections.
