Charities 2 – Jags 0

Cllr Joyce RyanThe new Redbridge Mayor is Councillor Mrs Joyce Ryan, member for Fairlop ward. She was elected at Full Council last week on 10th May, and yesterday [17th May] presided over her first Full Council in her new role. On the agenda was a motion moved by Councillor Hoskins and seconded by Councillor Mustafa asking the council Leader to scrap the plan for two new leased Jaguar cars and replace them with more environmentally friendly ones, but the Council Leader insisted that the plan had already been dropped. Not sure what will arrive instead but I doubt it will be a horse and cart or a rickshaw.

Anyway, each new Mayor chooses a charity for the year, but this year we have two. Victim Support and the Ilford Hospital Chapel. Hat tip for Joyce. One of Mrs Ryan’s passions is Libraries and another piece of recent good news is that Barkingside Library at Fullwell Cross [Barkingside 21’s logo] is now a Grade 2 listed building.
The Victim Support website is here, and there is a jolly good photo of the Hospital Chapel here with a map just in case you don’t know where it is.

  1. At least one good result, now forward to the next highly debatable issue of the idiotic plan to sell off all or part of the allotment sites in New North Road and Fullwell Avenue.
