Stéphane Croce is French. He has been living in Kennington Oval for 18 years with his Maltese husband. He has recently left the corporate world to start his own property business in South East London. He spends his free time cycling around London, enjoying concerts and sampling the London food scene with friends. He is also involved in the non-profit sector as a member of the board of a Housing Association and an organisation for adults with learning disabilities. European and Londoner at heart, he wants to keep Lambeth vibrant, open minded and diverse.
Kathryn is a former economist, originally from central Scotland, who's lived in London for 15 years. Since 2012, after recovering from a severe postpartum mental illness, she has mainly been spending her time campaigning for better mental health services. She is also a Mental Health First Aid instructor, helping many different organisations increase their understanding of mental illness in the workplace.
When she's not talking about mental health, Kathryn can usually be found out and about with her family, husband Tom and son James, 4, enjoying Lambeth and London. She has been a Lib Dem party member since 2005, but this is the first time she has stood as a candidate. She's looking forward to meeting more local residents, getting to know their concerns and priorities, and working hard on their behalf. Find Kathryn on Twitter @KatGrant30.
