Celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the London borough of Enfield have kicked off with the unveiling of a plaque.

The borough was created on April 1, 1965, from the municipal boroughs of Edmonton, Enfield and Southgate.

The council is working with businesses and community organisations to deliver the LBE50 campaign and celebrate the borough’s history.

Deputy leader of Enfield Council Cllr Achilleas Georgiou helped unveil the plaque with Mayor of Enfield Cllr Ali Bakir this morning.

Cllr Georgiou said: “We are enormously proud of our home borough and this campaign is all about celebrating everything that is good about the London Borough of Enfield.
“We want residents to join with us and make this a joyful, tumultuous and spectacular year of celebrations which demonstrate the enthusiasm, drive and aspirations of Enfield and its people and put in place the foundations for another 50 years of achievement, success and harmony.”
