Last year the Chevening Hub opened in the old changing rooms in Upper Norwood Rec. The building is run as a space for the community to use and provides a food and beverage service during the day for the community.
On 2 April 2018 the Chevening Hub will be holding an open day in conjunction with JAM Total Sport where there will be food and free sports activities for children.

The Friends of Grange Park, Old Coulsdon are once again holding an Easter Eggstravaganza in Grange Park on Easter Saturday 31 March, between 11am and 3pm, to help fundraise for further improvements to Grange Park, Old Coulsdon.
There will be a popular Easter Trail Quiz around the park (with a regular size Easter Egg prize), hot and cold refreshments including cakes and hot food, face-painting, raffles, crafts, a bouncy castle (weather permitting) and much more!
The Easter Bunny will also be hopping along to meet all the children.
This promises to be a day of fun for all the family!
Following the successful installation of the new play area in 2016 and a dedication from Fields in Trust to protect the park as a green space in 2017, the trustees have been working on a number of proposals, such as a perimeter pathway (similar to the popular path around Marlpit Lane Recreation Ground which is suitable for buggies and wheelchair users), and a trim trail or fitness provision. They plan to share some more details on the progress made later on this year.
A protest is being held at the Town Hall, Katherine Street, Croydon at 5 for 5.30pm on Monday 26 March 2018. The organisers encourage anyone with an interest to go along and support. There is also an online petition.
Who is Brick by Brick Action?
Brick by Brick Action is a collection of residents, organisations and interested parties that are concerned about the actions of Brick by Brick across the London Borough of Croydon.
The group is not affiliated to any political party or company. They want something done about the actions of this Council-owned company which they believe is ruining the area with badly planned building schemes that are proposed and approved with little regard to the wishes, concerns and ideas of those affected.
