North Bermondsey


Cllr Anood Al-Samerai

I have been a Councillor for ten years and am Leader of Southwark Liberal Democrats. My family lost our home in the Gulf War and moved to Southwark when I was nine years old. This made me passionate about London’s wonderful diversity.

I’ve worked for Social Services, Guy’s Hospital, and Simon Hughes, helping with problems from health to housing. I am currently Director of an education charity, matching retired teachers with youngsters from poor backgrounds.

I want to make my London a place people can afford to live, free to achieve their potential. I want to make my London Liberal.


Cllr Eliza Mann

I have been a Dickens Estate resident since the 1980s and a Councillor for 16 years. 

I came to the UK in the mid-seventies to train and work as a nurse. I have never forgotten the struggles which my Tamil community faced in Sri Lanka. I use my experience daily, challenging the council on the side of residents - whether it's for genuinely affordable homes or to tackle crime.

I am passionate about standing up for people. I support children in care and regularly attend pensioner coffee mornings.

I want to make my London safer. I want to make my London Liberal.


Cllr Hamish McCallum

I live on Chambers Street and work hard to support residents with the Thames Tideway project.

Since being elected in 2014, I am proud to have stopped a new Tesco in Shad Thames and to have won traffic improvements for Jamaica Road. I continue to campaign for the bike hire scheme to be extended across Bermondsey.

I am passionate about helping people and am currently qualifying as a Barrister. In my spare time, I am training for the London Marathon and have a Labrador called Louis.

I want to make my London greener. I want to make my London Liberal.
