‘Love Norbury’ campaign to tidy up town takes off

By - Friday 11th July, 2014

The Mayor of Croydon will launch a campaign to keep Norbury’s streets clean and tidy. The campaign will launch on Saturday 19th July at 10:30, outside O Cappuccino, London Road, SW16 4AQ, with free goodies and live music.

Release Begins: Saddened by the decline of its high street, Norbury’s residents’ associations have joined forces to strengthen the sense of community spirit and respect among local residents and businesses. Pollards Hill, Norbury Green, Norbury Village and Scotts Estate Residents’ associations are working together in favour of a better, brighter Norbury of which everyone can be proud.

The Mayor of Croydon, Councillor Manju Shahul-Hameed, will launch the ‘Love Norbury’ campaign on Saturday 19th July 2014.

Locally sponsored ‘Love Norbury’ banners will hang from lamp posts lining the Nobury section of London Rd. Proceedings will begin with the arrival of the Mayor at 10.30 at O Cappucino, 1447A London Rd, where she will meet those involved in the campaign, before giving a speech and cutting a cake to mark the launch.

A ‘meet and greet’ will follow along London Rd, with the Mayor visiting local shops. Norbury locals will have an opportunity chat to the committee, find out more about the campaign and hear how they can become involved. There will be free goodies up for grabs, as well as music from a saxophone duo.

Ian Clarke, chair of the Love Norbury Committee, explained: “The poor state of our streets, particularly the high street, is the issue of greatest concern to Norbury residents. The most common complaints include flytipping, litter, overflowing bins, dirty and uneven pavements, dog mess, the drinking of alcohol in the street and other anti-social behaviour.”

It is hoped that the campaign will tranform Norbury High street, increasing the variety and quality of shops. Members of the residents’ associations will receive a ‘Love Norbury’ discount card for use in local shops, aimed at supporting the high street and offering discounts of up to 20%. In return, shops are being encouraged to sign up to the ‘Love Norbury’ ethos, taking responsibility for the appropriate disposal of commercial waste.
