Wapping congratulations to Julia Dockerill and Denise Jones

The results of the local councillor election were not declared until mid morning today, when counting finally started after the Mayoral declaration was made at The Troxy in Stepney at 1:30am, so it’s been a very long two days and nights for all local politicians.

We’ll catch up with Julia and Denise properly next week after they’ve caught up on some sleep, but both have been seen campaigning hard on the streets of Wapping during recent weeks and months, right up to election day on 22nd May.

Here was Julia Dockerill, canvassing on the South Quay estate on the Wapping/St Katharine’s borders on election day:

Congratulations once again to both local councillors, Julia and Denise who will serve St Katharine’s and Wapping for the next four years.
