I'm really sad to hear about Hilary's death, she was lovely woman and great councillor.

Hilary was a real "character" There aren't enough of those in the blandly sanitised world of politics these days.

She was also a bloody tenacious local ward councillor for the old Cathedral ward and then as a campaigner for local residents in the years after she stood down.

And in her term as Mayor of Southwark she reinvigorated that role.

After all the pain she'd had to endure lately we can only be grateful that Hilary passed on peacefully.We'll always remember how vivacious she was, how devoted to any cause that needed her wisdom and her love of cream cakes !
Bless her, she'd be seen dashing here and there, coat flapping out in the wind behind her, off to sort out her next 'cri de coeur'.
We know how highly thought of she was by her colleagues in the LibDems, and how she even made it to watch the Polling day count in May,although she must have been in pain, but she would never have missed that occasion.
We were so glad to have known her,what a gal !

Sad news indeed. Hilary was a good friend of Southwark Park and in her mayoral year saw its restoration through a Lottery grant. She is remembered by many of us for climbing right up to the roof of the bandstand during its construction! She was also present when members of the royal family formally re-opened the park and footage of this is in a short film currently being shown at The Gallery in the park as part of the free "Our Park" exhibition. Open Wednesday-Sunday until 22nd August noon-6pm.
