London Housing Crisis

Today Clive attended an event examining the London housing crisis which has been brought about by Conservative policies.

Under the Conservatives house building in London is at its lowest level since 1924, the average age of a first time buyer is 38 and the London Mayor is missing his own targets on building affordable homes.

Clive has backed Labour Councils who have promised to build more genuinely affordable homes, tackle rogue landlords and create jobs and apprenticeships in the building industry.

Clive rides the border as he raises money for good causes

Clive joined riders from local cycling club Limited Edition to ride around the boundary of his Eltham Constituency to raise money for Demelza Children’s Hospice and for cycling charity Wheels for Wellbeing and to mark Britain’s Personal Best Day.


Britain’s Personal Best (BPB) is a year-round programme that aims to inspire people to set themselves goals and potentially attract sponsorship to achieve those goals to raise money for their chosen charity.

“I was delighted that so many turned up to join me today”explained Clive.   “I would like to thank the young riders from Limited Edition who kept me going.”

“Demelza really is a fantastic charity providing an amazing service for sick children and their families so it is an honour to be able to put something back like this.”

If people still want to donate to Demelza then they can do that through Clive’s JustGiving page

If people want to donate to the cycling charity Wheels for Wellbeing then simply visit  “Wheels for Wellbeing is another excellent charity that helps ensure that everyone can share in the joy and many benefits of cycling, regardless of any physical, health, mental or psychological barriers they may experience.” says Clive.
