Margot Wilson has been selected as the Lib Dem candidate to fight the by-election needed to fill the vacancy for a councillor in Sydenham ward. This is expected to be in May 2021.
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.
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 Sydenahm's streets green and pleasant.
