Haringey women’s group meet Mayor of London

Joanne McCartney AM invited the Turkish Women’s Philanthropic Association to City Hall where they listened to Mayor’s Question Time. Afterwards the group met with the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and presented him with a tapestry plaque to thank him for his work as Mayor.

This month’s Mayor’s Question Time saw Sadiq Khan answering questions on the London Ambulance Service call handling, improving poor air quality, and help with rental deposits for public sector workers. Ms McCartney has encouraged local residents to come along to the monthly meetings at City Hall to find out more about the positive impact of the Mayor and London Assembly.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said: “I was delighted to meet the women from the Turkish Women’s Philanthropic Association and to receive their thoughtful gift. Here in London we don’t just tolerate our diversity, we respect and celebrate it – and it was great to learn about what they are doing to support other women and the Turkish community in Haringey.”

Labour London Assembly Member for Enfield & Haringey, Joanne McCartney AM, said:  “It was great to welcome the women from the TWPA to City Hall and to see our London government at work. Our meetings are open to the public and I would encourage everyone to come to future meetings to find out more about what the Assembly and the Mayor do to improve Londoners’ lives.”

Chair of the TWPA, Sinem Arica said: “It was wonderful to visit City Hall. It was a real privilege to meet Sadiq Khan and present him with a plaque from the TWPA. We wish him all the best for the rest of his time as Mayor”
