Kathy Bance

I have lived in Penge for 45 years where I raised my 6 children. I have been a Labour Councillor since 2010 and have served on Education, Licensing, Environment and Public Protection & Safety committees, among others. I was awarded a Mayor’s Outstanding  Volunteer’s Award in 2006 and an MBE in 2011 for over 30 years of voluntary work in Penge, and for the past year I have been Mayor of Bromley.

I have lived in Penge for eleven years. Since my election in 2014 as Councillor for Penge and Cator, I have served on many committees on Bromely Council including Care, Environment and Development and Control. I play an active role at the Council, holding the Tories to account by monitoring and questioning their policies and opposing their cruel cuts. I have bid for greater investment in Penge. I successfully led the campaign to save Melvin Hall from being sold off to developers, securing a vital community centre.

I’ve lived in Penge and Cator since 2010. I am a commmittee member of Penge Partners, I help run the Penge Festival and volunteer with Bromley Homeless Shelter. I am also a volunteer mentor and tutor to support young people to realise their potential. I love the strong community spirit and diversity in Penge. I will fight against Bromley council’s neglect of Penge and the damage being done by the Tories’ austerity policies.
