    Congratulations – now the work really begins.
    “In Earlsfield Rachael Stokes was able to give Labour a foothold in the ward, joining Conservatives Charles Lescott and former mayor Adrian Knowles.”

    Well done.
    Now PLEASE keep a close eye on Floreat/James O’’Shaughnessy and the new academy school on the Atheldene site. They need to be watched’
    I have been writing to Cllr. Tracey, Sadiq Khan and R..Govindia weekly, chasing up educational issues that are important locally.

    I respectfully suggest that one of your first jobs could be to talk to those parents whose children haven’t been offered primary school places – other than too far away at Smallwood in another ward.
    Cllr. Tracey assuers me that they are all happy about it! I have doubts.
