Remembering Sir Anthony Berry
Enfield Southgate remembers the 25th anniversary of the loss of their MP Sir Anthony Berry.
Today Lady Sarah Berry, the widow of Sir Anthony Berry, named Enfield Southgate's constituency office 'Sir Anthony Berry House' in recognition of his 20 years service as MP that was ended by the Brighton bomb 25 years ago.
Lady Berry attended with her daughter together with Stephen Twigg, former MP for Enfield Southgate 1997-2005, and Enfield's Mayor, Cllr Elefteris Savva, Party Agents, local Councillors and Party members who had worked for Sir Anthony.
David Burrowes MP said: "It is a great privilege to pay tribute to the long service of Sir Anthony to the constituency of Enfield Southgate. It was good on this sad day for the Berry family to be reminded of the fond memories which remain in the constituency. At a time when the character of politicians is under scrutiny Sir Anthony's dedication and compassion is a shining example to follow. My constituency office now with his name will try and emulate his values of hard work and service for the benefit of his and my constituents in the years to come."
