Margot, a former teacher of French and English to Speakers of Other Languages, moved to Sydenham in 2011 to be near her family. She appreciates the lively arts scene in Sydenham and is a strong supporter of local independent shops.
Margot Wilson joined the Liberal Party in 1975 and has campaigned on many issues, from campaigning against the Iraq War right up to today and action on Ukraine. She is a passionate supporter of Liberal Democrats for Seekers of Sanctuary.
Margot has enjoyed campaigning in Sydenham and meeting local residents. Our surveys of local residents showed concern at the amount of litter and fly tipping around the ward, often with no signage to discourage people from leaving waste in those spots. Margot supports pleas for a waste recycling facility nearer to this part of the borough to enable residents to dispose of unwanted items without traveling to Deptford. She says "As long as there are no prosecutions of fly tippers, they will feel they can get away with it."
Another concern is that trees which have to be felled need to be replaced in order to combat the climate emergency, and keep Sydenham's streets green and pleasant.
