A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Part 2 of The Great British Property Scandal shows tonight on Channel 4. It really is a great way to use television, to highlight urgent social issues. It began last night and it featured some boarded up houses on the North Circular which are five minutes down the road and which I noticed about two years ago when I was taking a walk round the area.
These houses have been empty for years but take note - they are on one of the main roads to the Olympic Stadium and so somehow the Mayor has found some money so they can be renovated and let out.
I really recommend anyone who is interested in homelessness whilst properties stand empty for years to watch this programme. There's a chance to join and support a campaign that might just be gathering speed and going somewhere. Oh, and weep whilst you see row upon row of lovely Victorian terraced houses boarded up.
