Please support community initiatives on our parks and green spaces – 26 May

Friends of Norbury Park – 10am

If you have the time this Saturday, Friends of Norbury Park would welcome you to come along to the park at about 10am and meet some of its Committee members where they’ll be tidying up the Grade 2 listed Victorian reproduction ‘medieval’ water trough and let them know what other improvements you’d like for the park.

Manor Farm Nature Space – noon to 4pm


Unfortunately I will not be able to go as I am leading a history walk in the area of Battersea’s St Mary’s Church, the High St and the Square as part of Wandsworth Heritage Festival.

Note: Norbury Watch has been quiet re-postings as I have been heavily involved in all but one of the sessions of the Croydon Local Plan Public Hearing on behalf of the Love Norbury Joint Planning Committee and Croydon Trades Union Council.
