Dear Broad Green Residents Association Members and Friends
I hope everyone is well and enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend.
- BGRA aims
Thanks to those of you who attended our AGM on 5th May. We voted in our new constitution which includes our 4 keys aims and objectives
To support and empower local people and to support local projects and initiatives aimed at improving the Broad Green area and the lives of its residents
To provide up to date local information through our website, emails, newsletters and events
To encourage local participation in consultations which affect the Broad Green area.
To work with other local residents groups and organisations which have similar aims
- Croydon North Election Hustings
There will be hustings for the candidates for the general election on Wednesday 31st May 2017 at St John’s Church Auckland Road / Sylvan Road, SE19 2RX. 7:30pm – 9pm. (doors open at 7.10pm)
The best way to get to St John’s Church by public transport is a 410 bus from Croydon Town Centre. Unfortunately there do not seem to be any hustings closer to Broad Green.
You can submit questions in advance. Please see the link below.
- Croydon Environmental Fair
The annual Croydon Environmental Fair takes place on Saturday 10th June in Wandle Park, close to the bandstand. There will be music in the bandstand, food, and activities for children. The event starts at 11.00am
I will be at the event on the Broad Green Big Local stand. Please come and have a chat about your ideas how to improve Broad Green.
- Wilford Road Recreation Ground Football Competition
There will be a children’s football competition/fun day at Wilford Road Recreation Ground on Saturday 24th June, and everyone is welcome. Please see the link below for more information
There will also be a litter pick at Wilford Road Recreation Ground from 12.00pm on Saturday 3rd June
