Happy New Year everyone - I hope that 2010 brings you all you desire (in the case of political opponents almost all you desire).
And we are starting with some excitement as Boris is visiting Redbridge for one of his popular public meetings. This time the debate will focus on improving the environment both locally and globally. With the Mayor's environment strategies under review there should be plenty to talk about.
Joining Boris on the panel will be:
Isabel Dedring, the Mayor's environment advisor.
Cllr Keith Prince, leader of Redbridge Council.
Nick Crane, CPRE.
Lucy Siegle, environment correspondent at The Observer.
And I will be chairing the event.
The meeting takes place on Monday 18th January, at the Kenneth More Theatre in Ilford. Proceedings commence at 7pm and conclude at 8:30pm.
Tickets are free from the theatre box office on 020 8553 4466 and further details can be obtained at http://www.london.gov.uk/ . There is room for 500 people in the venue so this promises to be a lively and informative session.
