There’s nothing more important than our environment and we’re at a crossroads for our planet. Everyone has a part to play and I will continue to work tirelessly to help make our city more leafy and sustainable by engaging Londoners and showing them their actions are required and they do make a difference!
Her favourite trees are White Oak and White Pine
