Ordinary Londoners - No 6 in a series

Shot with Olympus E500

In spite of recent furore over Cash for Honours, changes since 1993 mean that ordinary people's efforts can be recognised by the system, which I think is good. So meet our local hero, Dame Gill James, MBE, Assistant Librarian and all round good sort. She has worked tirelessly and selflessly for our community for years and years, and is a worthy and popular recipient.

You can nominate someone for an honour here.

Worthy i'd say! Books books books... heaven.

What a great thing you're doing here, Ham. You're quite worthy yourself you know.

Nic - Isn't it just one of life's great tragedies that there will be no more Douglas Adams books?

Lynn - Why is it that I can hear Jules and Sandy ...."ooooo he is worthy"... when you say that?

And, for the record, some of the things Gill has done: organised a local "Music in the Park" event over many years, organised a local "car free day" several times, done all srts of stuff in the Library, managed the local LCC group, stayed with me when I got knocked down by the duck...

JULIAN: Yes, lamb's nice - or there's your jugged riah. That's palare for hare. We got it from our special charcuterie.
