We’re excited about the Christmas lights tonight from 4pm, organised by Feast & St Luke’s church who come together annually to bring a volunteer powered community Christmas fair to West Norwood. Look forward to a Christmas market, craft stalls, free activities for children, carol singing and a visit from Father Christmas!
Labour councillors in Lambeth learning how we can better support refugees in South London. We know many of you would like to help – we have received a number of emails and the Feast had a fantastic response to their call for donations. If you would like to help, please get in touch.
Since December 2011 the Edible Bus Stop – http://theediblebusstop.org/staging/gardens/west-norwood/ – has been working with West Norwood residents and the West Norwood Feast on a suitability site for one of their fantastic street gardens.The ‘Bollards’ site by the Fire Station on Norwood Road was selected by the community as the area they would most like to see animated.
Work began on the existing neglected flowerbeds by the 322 bus stop ‘H’ by William Brown Court in April 2012. The new design and garden space will hopefully open in June 2014. The garden will be planted with native and wild edible and non edible plants to create a Great British bio-diverse garden to inspire and improve the feel of the surrounding community.
