Councillor Kanta Patel 1947-2008
I've just heard the sad news of the death of Kanta Patel, Labour Councillor for Plumstead ward. She was much liked, and was a dedicated campaigner against racism and discrimination. She will be missed by the rest of us on the Council, and my thoughts and condolences go out to her family and friends. A fuller tribute is on the Council website.
