Following on from the success of November’s clean up day, Love Norbury are already planning the next one. It will take place on 11 March 2017.
Do come along and get stuck in with helping keep Norbury tidy. The more volunteers, the more will get done.
For those who are coming to help with Big Norbury Clean Up this Saturday, thank you for caring about Norbury! Here is what you need to know.
Why are we doing this?
We all need to look after our neighbourhood. It is proven that when an area is clean, people are less likely to drop litter. By holding a big clean up we will be setting an example to others. We also aim to educate people – we will be speaking to and handing out information leaflets to residents, visitors and shop owners. All helpers are most welcome!
What will we be doing?
Concentrating on the London Rd (including side roads depending on the number of helpers we get) we will be picking and sweeping up litter and scraping off stickers from lamp posts etc.
What area will we be covering?
The SERA patch is between Barclays Bank (corner of Norbury Crescent) and the corner of Ederline Ave. (Ederline Avenue to Strathyre Avenue is being covered by the Norbury Muslim Centre and PHRA).
What do I need to bring?
Just wrap up warm. All equipment such as gloves, brushes, bags, scrapers and sprays will be provided. Hot drinks and cake will be provided to keep us going.
Registration starts from 10.30am outside the Norbury & Edge, 1300 London Road. We will finish at 2pm – 2.30pm when the Council will be taking all the bags of rubbish away. You can start and finish at any time – we will be easy to spot!
Who is organising it?
It is organised by the Love Norbury team working in partnership with Croydon Council and with help from the Norbury Muslim Centre.
We hope to see you on Saturday!
