Labour Party give Merit Award to Carole Roberts


Carole Roberts, longtime Blackbird Leys resident, former Lord Mayor and City Councillor, yesterday received a merit award from Ann Black, National Executive Committee member and Secretary of the Oxford & District Labour Party. The National Merit Award is an honour reserved for Labour Party members who have a distinguished history of service to their local communities.

Carole joined the party in 1959 and served as councillor for the former Temple Cowley ward, the Iffley & Rose Hill ward and, most recently, Northfield Brook. She was Lord Mayor in 1998/9 after serving as Deputy Lord Mayor and Sheriff of Oxford. Until recently she managed the Rose Hill & Donnington Advice Centre which she joined in 1989 as the first advice worker. Carole is currently recuperating from treatment at the Churchill Hospital in Headington. 

UPDATE 10/8/15: Carole sadly passed away on August 9th. Our thoughts are with Carole's family and friends.
