Caroline's news

London Marathon 2007

Caroline spent the day enjoying the London Marathon and cheering on the thousands of people who entered the run from all parts of the UK and beyond. Caroline's husband Paul ran in memory of former councillor Stephen Flannery, who died last year in his thirties of a lung related illness. Guy, Stephen's partner also ran. The two runners have raised between them around £4,000 for the British Lung Foundation. The successful duo, despite the heat, both finished the gruelling 26.2 miles.

Campaigning for Woking Lib Dems

Caroline joined Southwark Lib Dems in a trip to help colleagues in Woking with their Borough Council elections. The team spent the day helping in Knaphill Ward, supporting local candidates Christian Morgan-Jones. Not only did the Southwark team help deliver lots of leaflets and meet local residents, they enjoyed the sunshine and the warm welcome and lunch!

Chingford Green By-election in Waltham Forest

Caroline has been out and about over the last few weeks helping in by-elections in London. The team in Chingford Green are putting up a really strong fight in a Tory-held ward. We're hoping an energetic campaign, combined with a history of regular Focus delivery over the last 20 years, may result in a shock victory in former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith's back yard.

Opening the new Tibetan Buddhist Centre

Simon Hughes MP, Ward Councillor Caroline Pidgeon, Deputy Mayor Cllr Eliza Mann and former councillor Catherine Bowman joined local residents and members of Kagyu Samye Dzong London at the opening of their new Tibetan Buddhist Centre, in the 100 year old, listed Manor Place Baths in Walworth on Saturday 17 March.

Kagyu Samye Dzong London is a branch of Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery in Scotland, a group supported by Lord Steel in his former constituency.
