Thank you to those who kindly made donations to the food bank at the Croydon Refugee Day Centre, West Croydon.  These have been delivered to the centre along with other donations collected at St Michael’s.

Forward meeting plan
Our next public meeting will be in January 2017 and we are waiting to hear from the council regarding the availability of a council officer who can attend as we’d like to revisit the topic of RUBBISH – Refuse, recycling and fly-tipping. We have provisionally pencilled in Monday 16 January 2017 for this.

Forward meeting dates and venues have been planned and will be announced as soon as each is finalised.

Current plans are to hold a meeting in association with the council on crowdfunding. We’d hoped to do so in February but we may dedicate the February meeting to discussing 20 mph as the borough-wide consultation has been approved by the council, ending in February, and move the crowdfunding meeting to March. 

We’d love to hear your views, so do let us know, either by posting comments here or emailing us at CroydonNeighbourhoods@gmail.com.

Everyone is very welcome to attend any of our events.

And anyone can support our work by taking up membership and/or donating to support our work.
