Ted Bowman has died after a lifetime of involvement in Southwark politics and public life.
The Electoral Reform Society has, after half a century, left its offices at Thomas Hare House in Chancel Street in favour of taking space in an Alice in Wonderland-themed serviced office block.
A 'topping out' ceremony has been held on the construction site for The Castle leisure centre at Elephant & Castle.

ScottRice_SE1 Exceptionally sad at the loss of Ted Bowman; a giant in our community and a man who will be remembered for vision, humility and kindness.
@cllr_rch They're about to start the Dulwich items now - but I'm off home.

For the last four years Southwark's planning committee has v often split on party lines. Outcomes much less predictable before 2010.
No surprise as planning committee splits on party lines to approve controversial Melior Street development by 4 (Labour) votes to 3 (LibDem)
