Can anyone confirm if East Walworth ward is now North Walworth (or vice versa) and if the two areas are exactly the same? I appear to get random party political and council-related messages that mention one or the other but not both in the same missive. I live on the south side of Bricklayers Arms, in what I believed was East Walworth ward. Have I moved but not been told?

There was a change in ward boundaries which took effect for the local elections in May 2018:

The new North Walworth ward is largely the same as the old East Walworth ward, and is represented by the same councillors.

The key change is that the northern tip of the old Newington ward - including the Strata tower and the Draper Estate - are now in North Walworth.

Thanks James, that's really helpful.

Perhaps someone should tell xxxxxxx and xxxxxxxxx (names redacted to spare their blushes) that East Walworth ward is now defunct!
