Volunteers at City Hall

This evening the mayor hosted a reception at City Hall to thank volunteers from Havering and Redbridge. Around 200 guests from a wide range of local organisations were able to network together and admire the amazing view of our fantastic city as the sun set over St Paul's. Boris spoke at length, expressing his gratitude for their efforts then we were treated to an impromptu performance from local opera star Katie Milton, who works at the Queen's Theatre in Hornchurch. A lot of people give their time and effort for free in our capital and it was great to join them to celebrate their contribution.

I look forward to Boris hosting volunteers from Broken Barnet: he must feel very grateful for the number of voluntary citizen journalists, for example, who are so dedicated to their work in this borough. I await my invitation to City Hall - and I promise not to sing.
