About Paul and Cherry

Paul Morrissey has lived on Tom Smith Close since 2000, and has just been elected to serve as chair of the Residents’ Group there for a second time.

Paul has a lot of experience of listening to his neighbours’ concerns – and taking action to get things done. He has campaigned for better repairs service for tenants and leaseholders in council Housing, and is also actively involved in the new Greenwich Line User’s Group which is campaigning for better rail services.

Paul worked for Greenwich Council for a while in 2011-2012, working on the regeneration of the Greenwich Peninsula. Paul has 30 years’ experience in the voluntary sector and Local Government, mainly in the regeneration and education fields, helping to ensure that inward investment benefits everyone, and especially the most marginalised in society.

Paul is chair of South East Enterprise, a support service for small businesses in Greenwich and Lewisham, and is a governor at Greenslade Primary School. 

Cherry Parker lives on Kidbrooke Park Road with her husband and young son.

Her family has lived in Greenwich for generations: her mother grew up on Lewisham Hill and has spent her career working with disadvantaged people. Her father runs a small business. 

Cherry started out as a journalist and has spent the past 10 years influencing  national policy and campaigning for change in recycling, social care and home safety.

Cherry works part-time advising social entrepreneurs and runs the Greenwich Timebank to make it easier for people to help their neighbours and get help when they need it in return.

Cherry is a governor at Invicta Primary School, a member of the Blackheath Society, a friend of Blackheath Halls and a trustee of the Age Exchange in Blackheath Village.

Cherry tweets @cherryparker and has a personal website,
