Print Archive: January 2014 News Magazine – Red dawn


By - Saturday 1st February, 2014

Our first ever print edition is now available online


The biggest news story of November by far was that London’s third Westfield centre had been given permission to open in Croydon town centre. By any rational reckoning, it was a foregone conclusion – at the most cursory of glances, its power to change things is clear. But what does ‘Hammerfield’  (or The Croydon Partnership to give the joint Westfield and Hammerson project its proper name) really mean for Croydon? What does that change look like? In this issue, we search for answers.

But there’s plenty more besides, including: a quasi-Marxist restaurant review, a searching interview with Croydon’s newest MP, and the festive but bittersweet reflection on all-too-real, haunting legacy of the Croydon riots, ‘Snowman in the Cronx’. Download now.
