About Us

We were elected as the local councillors for Penge & Cator Ward at the elections in May 2014.  Peter Fookes was first elected in 1990, Kathy Bance in 2010 and Kevin Brooks for the first time in May 2014.   We are members of the Labour Party.   We became active politically because we felt that our end of the borough needed a stronger voice on Bromley Council.   We all live locally and are members of many local organisations.  As well as taking up individual concerns, we are always pleased to attend meetings of local residents and groups.

You can contact us by post, phone or email or meet us at our regular surgery.  This is held on the first Saturday of each month between 10.45 and 12.15 outside the Post Office on High Street Penge.
