From Lewisham to Southwark

Hola. Hope all is well.

2015 was a big year in politics, not only was there the general election, which was covered on this episode of my podcast, (arguably our most coherent #prongcast) but more importantly I was accepted onto the Lewisham Civic Leadership programme. This largely involved going to council meetings. I’ve now graduated from the scheme, and also moved out of Lewisham , 3 months is a very long time in politics.

Should you be interested, and why wouldn’t you be, here is the first of 3 journals I wrote during my time on the scheme. It’s also a chance to see what I look like without glasses.

Ps. Should anyone at Southwark Council be reading this, let’s talk about how I can get involved in the community.

Cheers.

Til next time, be nice to each other.

I’m a leader

Before and after

                           Before and after

Hola. Hope you are well.

I’ve been in London for almost 5 years and in that time my successes can at best be described as limited. They include, remaining financially and mentally solvent (although at times this has been touch and go), training for and running the Great North Run and painting the front gate, at the shared property where I live. (see pic above)

Now I can add one more thing to the list of my London achievements, as I am now a Lewisham Civic Leader. This title may sound grander than it actually is, and there maybe 29 others but if Lewisham Council and Operation Black Vote want to call me this, who am I to disagree?

Til next time, be nice to each other.
