Coffee Morning – Wed 14th August

The next SERA coffee morning takes place at the Norbury Pub,  on Wednesday 14th August between 10.30am and 12.30pm.

This is a new venue but the aim remains the same – to bring local people together for a chat over a cuppa and slice of cake.  Free entry – all welcome.

The Norbury Pub is located at 1300 London Rd.  We thank Donal, Cindy and the team for hosting us.

AGM & 10th Anniversary Celebrations a great success


The SERA AGM and 10th Anniversary picnic was a great success.  The strong winds limited the games but we still managed some tennis, table tennis, croquet and a tug of war challenge against the Tennis Club.  We thank Norbury Park Lawn Tennis Club for its hospitality and Norbury Councillors Shafi Khan and Leila Ben-Hassel for their support.  Too much fun to wait another 10 years… next year anyone?

Joint Clean Up Success

Great work from SERA and NPRA in cleaning up the alleyway leading to the railway footbridge in Norbury Crescent (also over the other side to Norbury Avenue).  Thanks also to our local Councillors Shafi Khan and Leila Ben-Hassel for helping.

Clean Up Day – Sun 12 May

A couple of clean ups for your diary on Sunday 12th May.

Firstly, the Friends of Norbury Hall Park will be cleaning up ‘Squirrel Park’. Meet by the large Craignish Avenue gate at 10.00 or find us in the park. Or for those more green-fingered types, you are welcome to join our gardening group in tidying up our lovely borders. (Just bring a pair of gardening gloves and a trowel).

Then at midday, SERA, Norbury Park Residents’ Association and Manor Farm Nature Space are joining force to organise a clean up of the Norbury Crescent and Manor Farm Rd areas, including the Manor Farm nature space itself.

Meeting points:

  • Alleyway leading to the railway footbridge in Norbury Crescent
  • Manor Farm Nature Space – corner Manor Farm Rd/Norbury Avenue.

All clean up materials supplied – just bring a smile and your community-minded spirit!
