Golden Lane Bike project - results of resident consultation at Zoom

June 27, 2022 from 7pm to 8pm
Come to a zoom presentation on Monday 27 June from 7pm to 8pm In response to the pandemic, 2020 saw a major move towards encouraging cycling and walking in the City of London and across the capital.

Good evening all.  I am putting up this post as early this morning my partner of many years, John passed away after suffering from several years with Dementia.  I had looked after him as his sole carer for a very long time, until it was decided that he needed 24 hour care, which I  was not qualified to give him.  He was moved to a nursing home, where he received a lot of love and care.  Yesterday, I spent a few hours with him during his final time, with our beloved little dog Poppy.  I am devastated.  This time 3 years ago I lost my Mum to Cancer, and now John has gone too, also with suspected Cancer as well.  My love to him, and a big thank you to all my dear friends who have supported me.  Now they are both gone I am left with no family, apart from Poppy!
