It is important that our members are kept informed about the upcoming London Mayoral elections.

If your organisation is involved with London Mayoral elections and has its own manifesto, we would very much like to hear from you. Contact Deirdre McGrath – Head of Civic Engagement via email: Deirdre@londoncivicforum.org.uk
