Labour candidate Liz Carr talks to Kevin Cooney about the work of Westbourne play park group who raised funds for the Caxton Road play area in 2003-2006.

“Kevin talked me through the work he did with local residents, getting together groups and raising funds for the Caxton Road and Grove Hill Play areas. It was inspiring to hear about the the hard work and determination of local residents and Kevin’s role as a Labour councillor – it took three years to get Caxton Road play area completed!”

“I’d like to pick up the baton from Kevin. I am hearing from residents about the improvements they’d like to see now in West Chevin area, and if I win the election, I aim to be as persistent and determined as Kevin in getting things done for the area.”
