On 11 May 2022, Labour Councillors and members in Haringey planted a tree in memory of Narendra Makanji who sadly passed away three years ago. He was my predecessor as a longstanding Noel Park Councillor and my mentor. He gave me lots of good advice and endorsed me when I threw my hat in the ring to run as a Noel Park Councillor. He was a lifelong anti-racist campaigner and a key figure in the Labour Party’s Black Sections which paved the way for MPs and Councillors from ethnic minority backgrounds. He was a trailblazer. He is sorely missed in Haringey Labour Party. Hopefully, this tree will stand the test of time in memory of Narendra Makanji. Today was his 70th birthday.
