Putting the lamb back into Lambeth

Adopting a lamb at Vauxhall City Farm
On Tuesday Caroline visited Vauxhall City Farm where she adopted and fed Lamby the Wensleydale Sheep, one of the new born lambs.

“Vauxhall City Farm is a vital resource for the community in north Lambeth and wider afield. It was a delight to visit and see their work first hand. We must ensure that the City Farm’s work can continue, and that their funding is secure” said Caroline.

London Marathon 2007

Caroline spent the day enjoying the London Marathon and cheering on the thousands of people who entered the run from all parts of the UK and beyond. Caroline's husband Paul ran in memory of former councillor Stephen Flannery, who died last year in his thirties of a lung related illness. Guy, Stephen's partner also ran. The two runners have raised between them around £4,000 for the British Lung Foundation. The successful duo, despite the heat, both finished the gruelling 26.2 miles.
