SAVE OUR POST OFFICE
Residents are concerned because our local Post Office is under threat. Kim Caddy, your local Conservative candidate, is committed to protecting this essential community service. She and Justine Greening MP have contacted senior Post Office managers to ensure they commit to giving residents and businesses in Southfields the local services they need.
CAMPAIGNING FOR A LOCAL INDEPENDENT CINEMA
Kim Caddy has met Rob Richman of the Southfields Plaza Group. She will work with him and local residents to make sure we get a local independent cinema. The campaign is backed by hundreds of local residents. Kim has persuaded local Council Leader Ravi Govindia to back the campaign and make sure the developers listen to local residents.
FAIRER DEAL FOR COMMUTERS
Your local Conservatives have secured five extra trains an hour from Southfields Station during peak times as well as an improved evening service and a new lift. We are campaigning for new signalling to cut unnecessary delays, which will mean even more trains from Southfields. We are also campaigning for longer platforms at Earlsfield Station to reduce overcrowding.
Kim Caddy is listening to your concerns about crime. Although Boris Johnson will deliver 1,000 more Police Officers by May 2012, and over 1,000,000 more Patrols in London due to better deployment of resources, fear of crime remains high. Kim Caddy will listen to your concerns about crime in the area and raise them with our local Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT).

CAMPAIGN FOR NEW TENNIS COURTS IN KING GEORGE'S PARK
King George's Park is a great place for families to visit. Kim Caddy is lobbying the Council to upgrade the tennis court facilities for local residents. Kim says: "I regularly use St George's Park and I know how important it is to local residents. By upgrading the tennis courts, the Council could do even more to make the Park a great place to visit."
UTILITY COMPANIES TO PAY FOR DISRUPTION
Under plans announced by Boris Johnson and Wandsworth Council, utility companies will be charged when they dig up our streets. Kim Caddy says: "Locally we've seen terrible disruption caused by digging up our roads. I am delighted Boris Johnson and Wandsworth Council are taking such firm action. Some road works are necessary, but we shouldn't tolerate unnecessary delays."
