Our candidate for Lea Bridge is RoseMary Warrington
RoseMary Warrington has lived in Waltham Forest since 1981. She has been a member of the Green Party since 2009 and has been active locally and in the London Green Party. She has been a candidate in local council elections for the Green Party since 2010.
She is on the steering group of Transition Leytonstone, on the committee of Bushwood Residents Association, volunteers with OrganicLea. She was part of the group that campaigned against the land grab by the Olympics that left Waltham Forest with less open space and fewer sporting facilities from 2010 into 2015 in some cases. This included the degradation of Lea Valley Marshes by the building and demolition of a temporary basketball training venue which exposed significant dust from historic toxic landfill to local residents; and the siting of surface to air missiles on tower blocks including the iconic Bryant and May match factory, and the Fred Wiggs residential tower block in Leytonstone.
RoseMary supports the stop the incinerator rebuild campaign which commits Waltham Forest to a 50 year of outdated technology and disincentives to recycle with air pollution that can reach all of Leabridge on a northwest wind.
She supported the Low Hall Fields campaign against the take over of this green space for a temporary summer cinema which would have damaged wildlife and disturbed residents. The promoter has withdrawn for 2021 but saplings were uprooted in preparation for the event and whose promoter may reapply for 2022 so she will continue to monitor this.
She has been an officer of the Waltham Forest Green Party since 2011 and of the London Green Party since 2012 and on the committee of Green Party Women 2012 to 2019.
