We are delighted that we will be joined by Katie Rose who is directing Croydon’s first Festival of Peace – 16 to 23 June 2018 – an invitation to our community to reflect on peace through vibrant cross-cultural participatory arts.

World-class artists will collaborate with leading community partners to create large-scale imaginative events and enduring commissions including the London Mozart Player’s Anthem For Peace, a Peace Garden at Park Hill Park and innovative artwork commissioned by Rise Gallery.

This is an event for all, where everyone can get involved or take part, so come along to find out more!


If time allows, the rest of the meeting will be devoted to any subject offered for discussion or notice that people attending wish to raise. Please leave details as a comment on this post, or email us. These will be given priority on the night.

Our meetings are open to all and are strictly apolitical.


Doors open at 7pm, when tea and coffee will be available and you’ll have the chance to meet and chat with others attending. We’ll have local information on display for you to take away.

The meeting will start by 7.30pm, ideally earlier.

There will be brief introductions and notices.

Invited speakers will then speak and take questions.

If time allows, the meeting will then be open for you to share your views, offer a notice or propose a topic for discussion, with priority given to those suggested prior to the meeting.

The meeting will finish by 9pm. If possible, we endeavour to finish slightly earlier to allow people to chat after the meeting and for clearing away.


Please book a free place on Eventbrite here:

This helps us to cater for numbers and ensures that the meeting start is not delayed.

NEW kerbside Christmas tree recycling service in Croydon alongside drop off points

There is now really no excuse to not dispose of your real Christmas tree responsibly.

Croydon Council is offering a new Christmas tree collection service as well as the drop off points for recycling of Christmas trees this year.

 Kerbside recycling
The service will run from Monday 8 January to Friday 19 January 2018.

All you need to do is put your real Christmas tree next to your landfill bin on your collection day.

Before you put your tree out for collection, please make sure you have removed all decorations, stands and pots. If these have not been removed, your tree may not be collected.

Christmas tree collection points:

Christmas trees can be recycled at the council’s Refuse and Recycling Centres or at specific drop off points across the borough.

Take your real Christmas tree to any collection point between Sunday 7 January to Sunday 14 January 2018.

Please do not leave your real Christmas tree at a collection point after 14 January as it will be considered to be fly-tipping, for which you can face a penalty. You’ll need to take it to one of the refuse and recycling centres if you miss the deadline.


Ward Collection point
Ashburton Ashburton Park (access from Tenterden Road)
Coulsdon East Grange Park, Canon’s Hill
