Brixton Hill’s councillors have all been appointed to new positions within the Town Hall.
Councillor Adrian Garden has been appointed as Chair of Corporate Committee, the influential committee that acts as the Council’s ‘audit committee’, charged with governance, elections, employment issues and clearing the Council’s contracts. It discharges (on very rare occasions) the functions of the Council under the Rush Common Act 1806.
Councillor Florence Nosegbe is the Neighbourhood Lead for Brixton, one of five new positions to champion Lambeth’s neighbourhoods and link with key local organisations and initiatives like Brixton’s Business Improvement District.
Councillor Martin Tiedemann is now Deputy Cabinet Member for Healthy Living, responsible for encouraging greater participation in activities to keep people healthy, including leading on work to reduce isolation and promote the wellbeing of older people such as befriending networks and carers.
We are looking forward to working in these new roles and to using them to bring benefits to the services used by Brixton Hill residents.
We are also very proud that Brixton Hill resident Cllr Adedamola Aminu is the new Mayor of Lambeth for 2014/15. Ade has lived in the ward for many years and is councillor for the neighbouring ward of Tulse Hill.
