Notices from Sanderstead Meeting 16/10/14

Thank you to all who made it along to our meeting in Sanderstead on 16 October, 2014.

The notes of meeting will be circulated to all attendees for checking and comment, before being uploaded on our website.

The initial notices given on the evening, with links are:

streetpin logoStreetpin, an online noticeboard, fully integrated with other platforms, has launched a crowdfunding exercise. If you’d like to know more or to back the project, which offers a variety of rewards for support, see Streetpin.

The concept of Streetpin was shared at one of our earlier meetings by the developers to gain feedback on plans.  This notice is not an endorsement, but shared to raise awareness of a new platform for community engagement, as was done for Just Croydon, who sounded out names for the site at one of our meetings too.

  1. Can you confirm your Vice Chair has stepped down after Council investigation concluded that he had been “Islamaphobic and offensive” on Twitter and where and how was that decision made?

    Why have you not made any mention of this thus far on your website or Twitter?

    I have emailed privately but had no response from the Chair.


  2. Thank you for your interest in our work ‘Duona’.

    You appear to have information that has not been made available to the CCC committee.

    We would welcome receiving the information, evidence or facts you have on the council investigation and the conclusion reached, to which you refer.

    We cannot surmise when and how this took place as we do not have details, but are happy to look at the evidence you have, if offered.

    Please email any information or documents to

    Thank you


    • The following comment is being posted, although all these questions have been answered before:

      The comment is as follows:
      What is your response to this article?
      I assume you have knowledge of this, as it is about your Vice Chair.
      Why has there been no public statement from you on this matter?
      As a public funded body supposedly speaking for “Communities” you have been silent on this matter even though it involves a senior Member of the CCC.
      Do you not view hate crime as a serious matter?”
