Why a walkabout?
At the ‘Have your say’ event held at St Mary Magdalene Hall on Saturday 21st April neighbours came together and shared experiences of living in our area.
In chatting about the many things that we like and the things that irritate us, we identified a desire to:
- Meet more of our neighbours
- Take action on some of our local issues (litter was one)
- Promote community events more widely
- See our community groups working together
This walkabout has been organised as a next step.
Addiscombe in Action is actively supported by these local community groups:
- CHASE Residents’ Association
- HOME Residents’ Association
- Canning & Clyde Residents’ Association
- Residents For Regeneration
- Revitalising East Croydon Communities
We are a group of East Croydon residents and business people whose aim is to give all people in our area the opportunity to voice their views and together find ways of bringing to life what we want to see happen for our area. We appreciate the continuing cross-party support of our Addiscombe ward Councillors and local activists.
