As you may know, sadly a few weeks ago one of our local councillors, Adrian Knowles, passed away. Adrian was a passionate local councillor, working tirelessly for residents, and also a personal friend. He will be sorely missed.
Thank you for the support! All three of our candidates enjoyed huge support, both from the electorate and from local activists. Local membership is surging ahead as lots of people join Wandsworth Conservatives off the back of our extremely successful campaigns.
Local business woman and St Mary's Park ward Councillor Melanie Hampton has successfully nominated the Battersea Summer Scheme for Aviva Insurances 'Broker Community Fund' Award, which has given £10,000 to support the schemes work with local young people.
Building works are nearing completion at the former Bolingbroke Hospital site. A state funded secondary school, the Bolingbroke Academy, opened there in autumn 2012 under the Conservative's 'free schools' programme and a new health centre will open later this year.
Building is underway at 181-207 Tooting High Street. Replacing the car showrooms and Carpet Right, the mixed use redevelopment comprises flats and non-residential units including offices, shops, restaurants and a doctor's surgery.
