New data published by the Office for National Statistics shows that people living in Bexley are among the happiest in London, whereas those living just over the road in Labour run Greenwich are among the most unhappy.
It is no wonder when Bexley’s schools are ranked as some of the best in the country, when Bexley has the lowest crime levels in London, when the Borough leads the way for recycling and cleaning up the environment, when some of the best tourist attractions in London and the South East – Danson Park, Hall Place, the Red House and many more – are right here, where new businesses are opening or relocating and creating new jobs, and where over £200million of external funding has been invested in Bexley’s communities and town centres.
A spokesperson for Bexley Council’s Conservative Group said:
“Its official, these new figures show that Bexley is one of the happiest places to live. It proves that the constant focus taken by Bexley’s Conservative councillors over the last ten years, of investing in the long term future of the Borough and focusing on the things that matter to residents, has made a real difference to the quality of life in our Borough.”
The data also shows that residents living under Labour Councils in London are the most unhappy.
