Help sow the seeds of #ourgreenmile – a community-led project creating a green corridor between West Croydon & Thornton Heath

You too can be a proud supporter and/or an active participant in Our Green Mile, a community-led project to create a green corridor along the London Road, linking West Croydon Station with Thornton Heath Pond.

The project is a joint initiative between Broad Green Residents’ Association (BGRA), West Croydon Energy Garden (WCEG)  and Thornton Heath Community Action Team (THCAT).

Anyone can get involved but the team is particularly interested in engaging local people to drive the project forward. Could you help by taking responsibility for watering a planter, for example, or helping to spread the word by displaying a leaflet?

Want to know more or to get involved?

Then, book a place for the launch event on March 4 on Eventbrite.

Get in touch by emailing ourgreenmile@gmail.com if you’d like more information, have a suggestion or have something to donate to the project.

Feel better with a book – shared reading in Croydon with The Reader

The Reader is establishing Shared Reading groups in community venues across Croydon with the aim of reducing isolation amongst older people, especially those over 75 who are most vulnerable.

Are you interested in getting involved?

 

Find out more about the project, here, and in the video below

Bryony Littlefair explains,

“We at The Reader are very excited to share details of our two first regular Shared Reading groups in Croydon: our Age UK Croydon group at Park House, Central Croydon (Wednesdays 2 – 3.30pm) and our new group at Upper Norwood Library Hub (Wednesdays 10.30am – 12pm – starting Wednesday 7th Feb).  

Groups are free, friendly, and open to all ages and reading abilities. They are a wonderful way to relax and get stuck in to some great stories and poems while meeting other people in the local area.”

Interested?
