Shape of the future and welcome to the Mayor.

From Cllr. Jon Davies

The end in sight of the smelly cars that according to figures released today are the biggest cause of our air pollution? Gradually we are building a network of electric car charging points in London. One is right opposite my front door but today I saw it in use by one of the black cabs that will eventually be the shape of a cleaner electric fleet. I spoke to the driver who told me it takes an hour to re-charge.

And a first for me, helping the  Mayor of Lambeth, Cllr Christopher Wellbelove and the Lady Mayoress Anne Sassoon turn on the Christmas Lights at Bankhouse the block of flats on the embankment designed specifically for the over 55’s. This is a really interesting project offering a combination of independent living with on-call support staff, shared social facilities and every so often a mayor turning up to light up your tree. It has been especially popular with Kennington residents who want to stay close to their friends and family in retirement.
