A Tesco Express opened next to the Clifton Petrol Station a few years ago and this has led to many people – and in particular schoolchildren – having to cross the busy and dangerous Westhorne Avenue near to its junction with the roundabout.

Clive says: “This is clearly a very dangerous place to cross this busy road.  I would like TfL to come here and talk to local residents and see for themselves the risks that people – particularly children after school – are taking to get to the new shop.  Other roads at this junction have crossings and I do not see why we could not get one here.”

Clive joins protest calling for TfL to introduce pedestrian crossing at Clifton's roundabout

Clive was delighted to attend the opening of Eltham’s newest art gallery, in Well Hall Parade opposite the Pleasaunce.

“I was very impressed with the quality of the art on show in Ian’s gallery,” said Clive.  “The range of subjects, styles and different mediums is staggering – there really is something for everyone.  The gallery will provide an opportunity for local artists to exhibit and sell their work, whilst at the same time giving people a glimpse of Eltham's wonderful local art scene which is going from strength to strength at the moment.”

IMG_2139.jpgIt was standing only at a public meeting chaired by Clive to hear the exciting plans that Greenwich Borough Football Club have for the derelict Gaelic Athletic Association’s sports ground in Avery Hill.

 

The club – who currently play in Dartford and have been looking for a base back in Greenwich – want to restore the club to its original sporting use.

The site is currently the subject of two planning applications, the one from Greenwich Borough FC and another from Linden Himes to build 136 houses on the site

The site has been left unused for many years and was the subject of an application back in 2007 for over a hundred homes to be built on the field.  The application, which was turned down by the Council, was the subject of an inquiry in 2007 by the Planning Inspector. Clive gave evidence stressing that allowing the site to be built on would set a terrible precedent for the remaining sports grounds in the local area which play such an important role in the Borough.   Although the Inspector allowed the application it was eventually turned down by the planning minster.
