Summer of fun in Croydon North
Steve Reed MP has joined in with residents right across the constituency as Croydon North enjoys a fun-packed summer.
Last weekend Steve welcomed residents to the latest of his regular public question times. This week’s venue was St Oswald’s Church Hall in Upper Norwood. Over 50 local people turned up to discuss issues ranging from bin collections to improving local high streets and the lack of school places with Steve and the three local councillors John Wentworth, Pat Ryan and Alisa Flemming.
After a lively debate, Steve joined parents and children at Norbury Manor Primary School’s summer fayre. The busy event included a giant slide, bouncy castle, and a wide range of craft, food and other stalls.
With the sun still shining, Steve headed off to St John the Evangelist Church in South Norwood to look round their summer fete. Visitors were enjoying live music, raffles, a variety of delicious food stalls, and the spectacle of popular church minister Father John being pelted with wet sponges to raise money for charity.
Speaking after a busy day, Steve Reed said: “Croydon North has such a wonderful community life. There are so many activities that bring people together. I pay tribute to everyone involved in organising the many fetes, fayres and festivals that brighten up our part of the world. We’re having a great summer and I’ve really enjoyed taking part and speaking to so many local people.”
