    Friends of Tate Library Brixton and Friends of Windrush Square are inviting local people to continue the celebration of local heroes, as part of the Lambeth Heritage Festival.

    A commemorative image of Norma Williamson by local artist and Bugle cartoonist Pam Williams will be unveiled at the event.

    Norma, one of the Windrush Generation, was a tireless community campaigner who was director of human resources at The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

    Suggestions for inclusion in the Local Heroes Roll of Honour in Brixton library can still be made. A digital screen in the library will show the nominees. Jimmy Rogers, founder of Brixton TopCats basketball team, and John Cunningham, librarian of the Society for Co-operation in Russian and Soviet Studies, and Brixton Society stalwart are among those nominated this year.
