Community coffee morning a huge success!

The first community coffee morning organised by the Prince's Labour Action Team was a huge success, with over 50 residents passing by for a hot drink and a chat.

Kate Hoey MP, Councillor Lorna Campbell, and Councillor Steve Morgan spoke to residents about issues they were facing. Party members Mark Harrison and Martin Caldwell served teas and coffees, and Jack Hopkins welcomed people at the door.

There were representatives from areas across the ward, including Ethelred TMO, Vauxhall Gardens Estate Tenants' Association, Kennings Way, churches, community groups and businesses.

The event was kindly hosted at St Anselm's Church Hall at Kennington Cross.

Encouraged by the success of the coffee morning, Prince's Labour Action Team are now thinking ahead. Organiser Mark Harrison said 'We'd be keen to find out whether residents would appreciate more ward-wide events, or more focused area-based meetings, held in partnership with residents' associations'. Please let us know!
