Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


18 March, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


As we near one year since the first lockdown, I know for many this will be a time of reflection.

No one has been left unaffected by the impact of COVID-19, and it’s clear the ramifications will be felt for some time to come.

However, while there has been much loss and sadness, there has also been an incredible outpouring of support from within our communities.

From local organisations delivering food parcels, to neighbours lending a hand, Camden’s spirit has shone through the most difficult of times.

As I look back on the year, I want to say thank you Camden for continuing to support our borough and for helping to keep us safe.

Over the next few weeks, you can read here about our plans to recognise and honour the strength of our whole community efforts.

Finally, I know people, and especially women, across the country – myself included – have been deeply affected by the tragic murder of Sarah Everard.

I stand with women and girls everywhere who are hurting, angry and scared. As a society we must do better.

Harassment, abuse and violence need to be called out and continuing these conversations is a vital first step to achieving real change, where all women and girls can be safe.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
