Voters Lunch

I am organise a series of “meet your councilman” voter lunches and would really appreciate it if you could attend.

It would be great to meet you and have a conversation about any concerns, fears or questions you have about your ward.

Please email for upcoming dates as places for these voter lunches fill quickly.


Aldgate Ward Club Introductory Evening

Ward clubs started as rate payers associations as a forum for local residents, merchants and traders and others with an interest in the ward to make representations to the its elected members (like myself today). They have now evolved into more of a social and networking club but I am keen for more voters to get involved and learn about the governance and traditions of the City.

If this may be of interest to you I am delighted to inform you that our Aldgate Ward Club has organised an Introductory Evening on Wednesday 20 November 2013 at the Baltic Exchange (38 St Mary Axe, EC3A 8BH) from 6pm. There will be two or three short talks and an opportunity to network and chat over a glass of wine with existing members of the ward club. Please get in touch with them if you would like to come along.
