I dutifully watched the web cast of the London Borough of Culture Awards
from City Hall and right at the critical moment a phone call came through from
my cousin in Waltham Forest to say that at that very moment paramedics were
working on his wife who had suffered a cardiac arrest. I missed Sadiq Khan’s announcement!
I understand that Brent may have won jointly with Waltham Forest - or something like that.
Whether Bexley was recognised at all I have not yet discovered, a pity if not because it seemed its bid was a good effort. Frequent visitor to Waltham Forest I might be, but I never noticed any culture there beyond curry houses and pub quizzes.
