Councilor Jenny Wilson-Marklew, Labor District Councilor, welcomes the plans: “I’ve spent years talking to local residents about what they want to see in their area, so I’m delighted that the Progressive Alliance continues to put the community first. Young people are a key pillar of Fullers Slade, and I look forward to these events bringing them together while increasing opportunities in a fun and safe environment.
