My old colleagues on Lewisham’s Labour Group have revamped their website.
On their Proud of Lewisham page they say:
We’re proud because Lewisham represents whats best about Britain – that our tolerance, respect and diversity make our borough a great and strong community to live in. We know we need to work hard to maintain and develop our community, and that people want to feel safe and proud of the areas they live in.
People often say, we want more of a sense of community, and Labour in Lewisham agree. We want to build a strong sense of identity so that our community is strengthened by a common bond. Thats why we make a great effort to get behind those who do make a difference, and go the extra mile to bring people together, whether its our citizenship ceremonies, our celebration of Lewishams armed forces, our work with young people and community groups, or the local assemblies – all across our borough people are getting involved and making a difference.
