Survey on responses to the 2011 riots

Are you a Croydon resident or do (did) you run a business in Croydon? If so, please take part in a survey for Georgina Willis, a 2nd year undergraduate studying geography at Durham University.

For her dissertation she is investigating the social and political responses to the riots in Croydon over the last two years.

As part of the project she is inviting people to complete a short questionnaire, either:
~ a residents’ questionnaire
or
~ a business questionnaire.

Your response is confidential and you can remain anonymous if you wish.

Thank you.

Wandle Park Revival event – Saturday 6th July

Wandle Park will officially reopen on Saturday 6th July, following a major regeneration and improvement programme which included the raising of the River Wandle to the surface again. Buried for decades, the river now forms the centre piece of the park.

For the opening event, there will be a community celebration event in Wandle Park on Saturday 6th July, from 12 noon until 6pm. There will be live performances, food stalls, activities for children and much more.

Broad Green Residents Association is joining with Friends of Church Alley in their stall at the event, so do come and say hello! You can also find out more about these and other local organisations and about our plans for the summer and beyond – such as the outing to Margate on Sunday 14th July.

Helpers: if you want to volunteer to help on the stall during the day, please get in touch with Cathy on 020 8684 2445 or Brian on 020 8240 7110 as soon as possible.

Outing to Margate – Sunday 14th July 2013

Join us for a visit to Margate on Sunday 14th July 2013.

It costs £15.50 per person and the coach leaves Broad Green at 8am.

To book, contact Brian on 020 8240 7110, or bring your £15.50 to the bingo session at Federation Hall on Friday 5th July, from 7pm. You can also sign up at our stall at the Wandle Park Opening event on Saturday 6th July.

Margate is one of the Portas Pilot towns (like Croydon), so if you don’t feel like sunbathing or paddling on the beach, you could check out how the high street shops are doing!

See you then!
