Release begins: Everyone is welcome to attend the event, which will be held at the Timebridge Community Centre on Fieldway from 7:00-8:30pm.

Commission Chair the Right Revd Jonathan Clark, Bishop of Croydon said: “We want residents to tell us what is good and bad about their neighbourhood, and what changes they want to see. This Commission is a once in a generation opportunity to bring the people of Croydon together and to use all the assets available to us to create a fairer and better place to live. We need you to join us and give us your views.”

The Opportunity and Fairness Commission, launched at a packed public event at Stanley Halls, South Norwood, at the end of January, is an independent body chaired by the Bishop.

The Commission has begun its evidence gathering stage, and continues to call on Croydon residents, businesses and other groups to get in touch and tell them how they think Croydon can be made better by emailing .

An interim report will be produced in September. This will be followed by a further phase of work culminating in a final report in January 2016.

The organisers would be grateful if anyone interested in attending the event can register for free at, email the address above or freephone 0800 612 2182.

Release ends.
