The Telegraph Hill ward in the south east London borough of Lewisham has been represented by socialist councillors for 15 years.
Socialist Party members, Ian Page and Chris Flood, are the current socialist councillors in Telegraph Hill wards.
Over the years the local party branch has produced regular editions of a newsletter, Socialist News, to keep local residents informed on what their councillors are doing.
Lewisham Socialist News - Our record
The last four years' newsletters have now been pulled together into a comprehensive report on the activities and voting record of our socialist councillors Ian Page and Chris Flood - and the other parties' records too!
Copies of the report are available for sale at £2 per copy. Please note that payment is required in advance and cheques should be made payable to London Socialist Party or LSP.
Please make orders by contacting Jess Leech, Lewisham Socialist Party on: firstname.lastname@example.org

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal
The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
- When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
