Trustee Steve Offord is an Honorary Alderman of Royal Borough of Greenwich

We are delighted and proud that our trustee Steve Offord was duly made an Honorary Alderman of the Royal Borough of Greenwich in a ceremony at the Town Hall.

A former councillor of Abbeywood and Mayor (like his father Jock Offord) Steve deserved his honour by virtue of his long term commitment to the people of this borough with special attention devoted to Environmental Health, Planning, Housing, and Youth Work.

A video of the ceremony can be found on the RBG website and Twitter. Steve's award begins at minute c. 26.00 on the video.

Congratulations to Steve and his family!
