Celebrate the community’s involvement in improving the neighbourhood

Streetworks is a community-led, TfL-funded project to improve West Norwood and Tulse Hill. The first phase of the project is to improve Norwood Road, and the second phase will look at improvements to the one way system and area around Tulse Hill station.

Hundreds of residents have been involved – from attending workshops and tweeting us their ideas to taking part in training and hosting their own community engagement events. 

We want to celebrate the involvement and enthusiasm of the community so on 23rd May we would like to invite you to come to our party and awards ceremony at Elmgreen School. We will hear from students at Elmgreen and members of the steering group about their involvement, and about future opportunities to get stuck in, and the Mayor of Lambeth will be awarding certificates to students. The event will conclude with a drinks and nibbles and a ‘marketplace’ of groups and local projects, should you want to find out more about this and other local opportunities.

School uniforms needed at the Norwood Foodbank

Some families in Norwood are struggling to make ends meet. As the new school term approaches, a number of local children are in desperate need of good quality clean school uniform that families no longer need to enable their children to start a new school or go back to school with uniform.

If you have uniform that your children have grown out of or no longer need, please bring it to St Luke’s Church in West Norwood between 10-1pm on Tuesday. If you aren’t able to make it on Tuesday, you are welcome to drop donations round to Anna’s on Monday evening after 6pm at 14a Deerbrook Road SE24 9BE.

We are looking for –

– Basic colours blue, black and grey trousers and skirts
– Basic jumpers, cardigans
– Basic shirts and tee shirts

Various schools and sizes would be very welcome.

Volunteering opportunity at Elmgreen School

Action Tutoring is looking for volunteers to deliver a new programme beginning in January at the Elmgreen School, to tutor in English and Maths. 

Action Tutoring sends volunteer tutors into local schools in London to support underprivileged students on the C/D borderline in English and maths. The aim is to get them a C or better and improve their future prospects.

This is a great opportunity to develop professional skills and help young people facing socio-economic disadvantage. If you are interested in applying, get in touch here – http://www.tfaforms.com/332860
