Your Wimbledon Park Team
Ed lives with his wife and young family in the Wimbledon Park Grid. His youngest son is six years old and so our ward’s fabulous heritage park - Wimbledon Park – is a top priority for Ed. ‘The Park has a wonderful heritage and superb sports and leisure options - we have to protect and preserve it, and keep the Park looking great for everybody to use.’
Ed is also working to deliver better school access and outcomes in education for Merton, and is also campaigning to use the opportunities from the redevelopment of Plough Lane to invest in the North end of Haydons Road and its vicinity.
Ed works as a lawyer. He also enjoys working with the local ward police and chairs Wimbledon Park’s Safer Neighbourhood Panel, as well as running his local Neighbourhood Watch in The Grid. He is looking forward to using his professional experience to address the issues that residents are most concerned about.

In May 2010 Oonagh's extensive service and community leadership qualities were recognised when she was elected Mayor of the Borough for 2010-11. She was delighted to work with the people of Merton making young people the focus of the year and with a particular emphasis on music, sport and the performing arts. Her chosen charities were Wimbledon Civic Theatre Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support, for which over £41,000 was raised during her year and went directly to fund specific projects in the Borough.
Oonagh was appointed to LFEPA (the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority) in May 2005. She has been a school governor of local schools for many years. She was a Governor of Bishop Gilpin C of E Primary School for 10 years and has also served as a Governor of Ricards Lodge High School.
