Edgbaston Council Record!

100 years 004

On a week when we have celebrated International Women’s Day, and the Council honoured former Edgbaston Councillor Dame Ellen Pinsent by renaming a committee room after her; I am grateful to activist Amil Khan for pointing out to me that last September I overtook the record of Clara Martineau (who was an Edgbaston Councillor between October 1913 and February 1932) to become Edgbaston’s longest serving female Councillor.

Feel very humbled. I certainly wasn’t expecting that when I won my seat from Labour in 1999!
