Updated list of organisations
CCC are building up a current list of Residents’ Associations and groups, as well as a list of conservation and park groups as the council does not hold a current list of either of these.
All were asked to help build the lists with current details.
A list will appear on the website shortly, including Croydon Heritage Festival – from 20 June, South End Food Festival on 28 June, Purley Festival from 29 June, South Norwood Community Festival on 5 July and Ambition Festival from 23 July.
The New Addington Carnival and Parade will be held on 13 and 14 June. The website is not currently working, but there is a Facebook event page.
Local policing team newsletters
These are uploaded onto the CCC website. Croydon’s local policing teams are keen to get more residents signing up to receive their local team’s newsletter. Occasional important updates are also sent out. Just email the local SNT to be added to the circulation list.
