On Thursday 15th October you can Vote for a Green voice on Southwark Council
Eleanor Margolies is a South Londoner who has lived in the heart of the South Camberwell ward since 2008.
As Chair of the East Dulwich Estate Regeneration Project Team since 2012, she has:
- worked with fellow residents to raise £58,000 to create a new community garden
- raised funds for the first 20 cycle lockers on the estate
- got Veolia to install new recycling bins
- helped organise two Big Lunch street parties
- held building contractors on the estate to account on air pollution and road safety
In 2014, Eleanor led a citizen science project to study air pollution with pupils at Dog Kennel Hill School and scientists from King’s College London. ‘Children and the elderly are most at risk but we’re all affected. Southwark Council should be lobbying Transport for London to clean up local buses and get diesel fumes out of our playgrounds.’
Eleanor is a writer and loves discovering local history, quiet streets and new cafes by walking. She created a guide to Camberwell art and parks and has led walks for the public.
She is a member of the Cycle Joint Steering Group on Southwark Council and campaigns for safe cycle routes and secure bike parking for tenants (both council and private). In her spare time she volunteers with Wheels for Wellbeing at the Herne Hill Velodrome.
She says: ‘A Green voice on Southwark Council would mean a voice for a fairer, healthier and more efficient Southwark. I will work for affordable housing and transport, safe streets and clean air.’
