Julie Redmond Visits Kentish Town City Farm
Kentish Town Farm has the distinction of being the UK's First City Farm, established back in 1972. As a local charity, it plays a vital role in fostering a connection between city-dwellers and the natural world, promoting interactions with animals and the environment. The farm holds a truly special place in my heart and visits there are filled with cherished memories of my son growing up combining moments of both solitude and happiness.
Recently, Julie Redmond (Conservative Candidate for Barnet & Camden) had the opportunity to meet with the farm's manager, David Hastings. there she learned about the farm's numerous community initiatives, including educational programs for schools, NHS coffee mornings, and collaborations with the local Caversham Group medical practice to facilitate social prescribing for individuals with mental health issues. We also discuss David's concerns regarding the horse paddocks at the farm. Unfortunately, the farm's horses are currently unable to return to their paddocks due to essential repair work being carried out to adjoining Network Rail property.
She intends to reach out to both Camden Council and Network Rail, urging them to carry out the necessary works as quickly as possible and ensuring that the farm can continue its work in the community.
The next Greater London Authority elections will be held on May 2nd 2024, when London elects a new Major and a London Assembly. We have selected Julie Redmond as our candidate to fight the Barnet & Camden seat on the Greater London Authority. Working for the last few years in politics and helping local residents groups she is passionate about helping our community. You can read more about her here
