Cllr Anolue said: “It has been a privilege to serve the people of Enfield and while I am proud of all that I have achieved, I feel there is still much to do, particularly with my chosen charities, to educate young people, help deal with violent youth crime, and to help vulnerable women. So, my work will continue!
“I would also like to convey my excitement this year at having launched the roles of Young Mayor and Deputy Young Mayor. They have already proved to be hugely enthusiastic and are doing some wonderful work in Enfield. It has been an honour to work with them and I look forward to our upcoming projects over the next few months.”
On Sunday 29 September the Mayor of Enfield is hosting her annual fun run featuring 10k, 3k and for the first time 5k distances. The runs take place through Enfield’s historic Forty Hall estate.
