I am a member of the Sydenham Society, Friend of Horniman Museum and a Friend of Sydenham Garden. I am also a supporter of the Grow Mayow Community Garden and a Friend of Mayow Park and a Friend of Home Park. I am also a supporter of the fantastic Sydenham Wells Park.

I am proud to be a former governor of Sydenham School, the local secondary school for girls in Dartmouth Road, as the results are now above the national average. Forest Hill School in Dacres Road has over a 1,000 boys attending this thriving comprehensive school supported by a magnificent building with state of the art technology and performing arts facilities.

The Metropolitan Police Lewisham web site is well worth a visit as it has information about the Safer Neighbourhoods Team and the contact details for Sydenham.
