Arriving in London from Manchester at the age of 18, Kathy got involved with the 'Foodies' revolution bringing nouvelle cuisine and Michelin stars to London restaurants. She ran a successful retail business in Chelsea for 25 years, learning the secret of success is hard work - and owning the most popular Westie in town. Although his name was Paddington he became an honorary Chelsonian.
Kayaking on The Thames, cycling around the UK and Europe and running are important to Kathy. She has raised £1,000s of pounds for Action Aid by running The Great South Run once, The Great North Run twice and The London Marathon.
Kathy rates joining the LibDems as one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. She says: "LibDems are amongst the most imaginative, amusing, articulate and intelligent people I have met. They are individuals carrying a torch for individuals."
A champion of free speech and democracy, if elected Kathy will fight Lambeth Council on any issue that affects her constituents, and on any issue that she feels is unjust or unfair.
Bryan has lived in London for 10 years. Born in Dublin, his family moved to Wales in the eighties. A proud European having studied in Sweden and in the US, he now works as an analyst for a pension fund.
Bryan moved to Tulse Hill three years ago with his wife and they are expecting their first baby in the New Year. He cycles to work as it’s slightly less stressful than getting the train through morning rush hour. Having grown up in Wales, Bryan was a rugby coach for Southwark for a number of seasons and still manages to get out to play a match now and then.
He says: "I joined the Liberal Democrats as the Britain I grew up in and the London I know is nothing like what I read online or see on TV. London is a liberal city, and I want our politics in Lambeth to reflect that."
