This week Southwark councillors of all parties unanimously backed a motion calling on the council to name a new public building after Bermondsey resident Grace Jones who died last year at the age of 113.

“Grace Jones led a long and remarkable life, which should be noted with a fitting tribute by Southwark Council, said Cllr Eliza Mann (Lib Dem, Riverside ward).


“Naming a public building after her would be a mark of respect for somebody who lived through the whole of the 20th century and beyond, and was one of the best-known residents of our borough.”
