Members of Broxbourne CLP attended the Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony in the grounds of Lowewood Museum this afternoon. The photo shows the secretary laying a memorial stone.

There was a beautiful programme of readings and singing by councillors and by pupils of St. Catherine’s Primary School and Robert Barclay Academy.

Shoes were collected for charity and to remind us of the heart-breaking piles of shoes that were left after Jewish and other victims were taken off to the gas chambers.

The memorial stones are a Jewish tradition of leaving a stone when you visit a grave rather than flowers.  Speakers asked us to remember the victims of the Holocaust and of other wars. We must speak out when such crimes are committed in our own time.

Kathy Condon,  Broxbourne Party Secretary said this about Malcolm Aitken, who sadly died recently.

 

‘It was a pleasure going canvassing with Malcolm but you needed to be patient. The thing was, most of the residents of Waltham Cross seemed to know him and appreciate him, and wanted to update Malcolm on things he had sorted out for them. Or else they had a new problem they wanted him to take on. He would listen with great interest and concern and work out what he could do for them. It meant we were sometimes on the doorstep for an hour before we could move on.

 His kindness to the residents was contrasted by his performance in the council chamber where he was leader of the Labour Group. He would give no quarter to Conservative councillors whose views he considered to be unhelpful to the residents. He was not bound by procedure, sometimes to the consternation of the Mayor.

Last year he laid the Labour Party wreath at the Remembrance Day ceremony in Hoddesdon. He did that with great dignity despite having to have a bit of help because he was blind. Afterwards he chatted to people for ages including to the firemen who had brought a fire engine to the ceremony. Many of them knew him and the others wanted to meet him.’

The Broxbourne Labour Party has been shocked and saddened by the death of Councillor Malcolm Aitken who was leader of the Labour opposition on the council.  Malcolm had represented the residents of Waltham Cross for 14 years. 

Labour councillor Neil Harvey said to the Hertfordshire Mercury that his colleague's death came as a "devastating shock". He went on to say “Malcolm is Malcolm. He certainly stood up for what he believed in and that's the sort of man he was….he was a good leader and he would fight for people, not just in Waltham Cross but across the borough, if he saw injustice taking place. He will leave a big void."

A statement released by Broxbourne Council read: "We are all very sad to hear the news that Councillor Malcolm Aitken has passed away. He was a dedicated member of the council for over 14 years and served his community with great passion. He truly cared about his constituents and will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends at this difficult time."

The Broxbourne Labour Party would like to express our deepest condolences to Malcolm’s friends and family.

We resolve to carry on the work that he did so ably and with such commitment for so many years.
