Cllr John was awarded the OBE for political services and services to Local Government. 

Responding to the announcement Cllr John said: “It is hard to put into words how honoured and humbled I feel to be included in this year’s New Years Honours. I often tell people that Southwark is the best borough in the best city in the world, and I am incredibly proud to serve this great community.

“Local government isn’t always recognised for all the good work it does, but being a council Leader is a hugely rewarding job, and I hope that people see this announcement as recognition for our borough as well.”
