Announcements from the mayor, members of the cabinet or chief executive

To receive any announcements from the Mayor, members of the cabinet or the chief executive.


The Mayor announced that on Friday 29 November 2013 Councillor David Noakes would be spending a sponsored night outdoors for the Robes Project Sleepout 2013. The sleepout would be outside Southwark Cathedral to raise money for the South London ecumenical cold weather night shelter project.  Donation could be made via a link to the night shelter website or sponsorship forms had been circulated around the chamber.


With sadness the Mayor announced the passing of Grace Jones, Britain's oldest resident who lived in Bermondsey, Lesley Hammond who was the last Greater London Council member for Dulwich from 1981 to 1986 and Richard Muzira from Cooltan Arts who was tragically killed in Camberwell on 18 November 2013.  The meeting stood for a minute’s silence.
