Today I visited Place Peter Avis & was also honoured to take part in the commemoration of the 77th anniversary of the Raid. Of the 4,963 Canadian servicemen who left England to take part in the operation, only 2,210 returned, many of them wounded. We will remember them.

Current lifestyle = pretty unfit! My first ever park run. And I didn’t come last! Although I did break the buggy 😝 Was especially great to speak to the close community of volunteers who make it happen each week & to hear why ppl take part for their mental health & wellbeing 👊

Really happy to welcome Peer Support volunteers from some of whom are also involved in the service. I’m so proud that they’ve completed their training and are now able to contribute to improving the mental health & wellbeing of others in our community.

Citizenship ceremonies are amongst the most emotional duties I have as Mayor. Today my friend Fabi became a British citizen & I was honoured to be there to witness what for her & others can be a long & sometimes difficult journey. May our diverse communities continue to grow!

So pleased to support my friend & neighbour Kiersten’s staff health & wellbeing programme . Our NHS staff in & working in HIV & sexual health do such fantastic work. But sometimes when you care for others you forget to look after yourself.

I remember learning about Hiroshima & Nagasaki at school. It helped shape who I am & my view of nuclear weapons & war Tonight, on Hiroshima’s anniversary, it’s never been more important to reflect upon the impact of nuclear weapons on people, animals, vegetation &our environment

Another group of Guides from across the UK and Ireland going up the i360. Standard question: ‘how do you become mayor?’ Not-so-standard question was also: ‘was your Dad also Mayor?’...

This is what I’ve been doing all week: making people in graduation gowns & mortar boards look normal 😂 So pleased to join such brilliant students as they celebrate their degrees at graduation. Here I am with 2 of the 4 presidents of the student union.
