Clive Lewis
Candidate for Norwich South

Clive has lived in Norwich since 2001.

An associate governor of Thorpe St Andrew School, he’s also worked with schools and charities helping some of the city’s most disadvantaged children. Clive was also one of the last Labour Government’s National Black Role Models – working with young people across the UK.

Clive is passionate about Norwich’s developing scientific centres of excellence. He supports institutions such as the Norwich Research Park in its aim of developing the city’s future by creating and supporting new companies and jobs based on world-leading bioscience.

Wages in Norwich have historically lagged behind the national average and Clive has been at the centre of a broad coalition of trade unions, faith groups, businesses and academics working for a Living Wage across the city.

Clive is an ardent supporter of high quality public services and has led a high profile campaign against the privatisation of local NHS services.

Clive has been a BBC TV News reporter for more than a decade starting out as a BBC News Trainee, eventually becoming the BBC eastern region’s chief political reporter. He currently works in a non-editorial role at the BBC in Norwich.

Born in London, Clive grew up on a council estate in Northampton. He attended a local comprehensive, becoming the first member of his family to attend university. He read economics at the University of Bradford before being elected student union president; and eventually Vice President of the National Union of Students (NUS).

Clive is also a proud supporter of Norwich City Football Club with a season ticket in the Barclay End.
