Merton Conservatives have put forward proposals to save Wimbledon police station from the Mayor of London’s axe. Their plan is for the local council to seek to purchase the police station, following a similar move by the London Borough of Hillingdon.
Whatever Cllr Alambritis might claim on the Wimbledon Guardian front page (18 January 2018), the reality is that under 8 years of Labour running Merton council, the regeneration of Morden town centre has stalled.
Merton Conservatives were busy selling poppies outside both Wimbledon station and Morden tube station during the morning rush today as part of London Poppy Day (Thursday 2 November). London Poppy Day marks the start of the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal across the capital.
As part of the national Local Democracy Week initiative to bring together elected politicians with younger generations, Conservative councillors are visiting various schools in the borough over the next few days.
