At a special meeting of Bromley Council on Wednesday, Peter Fookes was made an honorary Alderman of the London Borough of Bromley.


First elected as a Labour Councillor for Penge in 1990, Peter represented our ward for 28 years until the local elections earlier this month. In that time he also served as Co-Leader of the Council and was leader of the Labour group during two separate terms.

In addition, Peter spent his time on the council working tirelessly to help local people, including attending Living Well at Holy Trinity Church on Friday lunchtimes to assist residents there for many years.

Peter continues to be a trustee of Melvin Hall, following the successful work by a group including our Councillors to keep it running for the community. He also continues to sit on the committee organising the Penge Festival, Penge in Bloom and Penge Older People’s Network.
