Golders Green is not only where our office is based but it is our home. What make this area so special is the people that we meet every day, the real sense of community and its village feel. All of us know some real characters who always have a story to tell and are forever eager to help others before themselves.
We wanted to say thank you to these people and so we launched ‘Community Champion’. We are proud to announce that our Community Champion for 2014 is Ronnie Vaughan. Ronnie was born in Holloway in 1930 and has lived in the area ever since. We sat down with Ronnie recently to find out more about him and why he couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
We asked Ronnie why he loved living in Golders Green?
The diversity of people, its very cosmopolitan, also peaceful and safe. I love the parks and Heath. It is heaven on earth for me.
How many times have you moved home?
6 times in and around the local area.
What is your earliest memory?
Walking behind the 1966 World Cup winning Football Team as they walked into the old Ionic cinema in Golders Green!
Where is your favourite spot?
Imperial Cafe on Golders Green Road which is great for fresh coffee.
We can certainly second this!
Ellis and Co Golders Green are offering each Community Champion £200 to donate to their nominated charity.
We know your charity has a special place in your heart Ronnie, which charity would you like to nominate?
I would like you to donate to Barnet Independent Living Service.
Barnet Independent Living Service offers specialist support to adults with a range of physical and sensory impairments.
Congratulations Ronnie on being our Community Champion for 2014
