A group of families and friends of young people lost to knife crime have started an awareness campaign in Croydon with blue ribbons tied to fences, trees and sign posts. Look out for them.

Also, if you’re willing to put up a few blue ribbons go to the Stop Knife Crime Facebook page and they’ll give you some.

The South Norwood Woodcraft Folk put some up at South Norwood Lake the other day.

I'm sad I wasn't asked to play. The only band I'm interested in is the lovely eggs, so I shall not be bothering.
Yeah I had a look at ticket prices as they were playing, but the bill as a whole didn't feel worth it for the price. I might have gone if I'd got an earlybird ticket.

When I worked in Croydon we sometimes used to go for Friday team lunches at The Lansdowne's somewhat canteen-like dining room. It had a pretty good baked potato waggon IIRC. :D

Yup, it's the last place I can imagine being cool and creative, but good luck to them!

What price are they now? When I looked they were about £18. I wasn't keen on paying that for the eggs, but if there had been two decent bands and I wasn't packing for a holiday. . . Maybe.

I think it was about £24 when I saw it advertised during the week (although it may well have ended up a few quid more after booming fees nonsense). I think early bird were £16 but were sold out.

I have been wondering what that was about, they are all over the Borough.

Whats this latest eye of sauron tower going up in Croydon? You can see it from Bromley ffs
it's this, it's actually quite interesting from a construction point of view, as it is a modular build - the tallest in the world. It sure is going up quick now the core is up.

Croydon towers ready for module fitting to begin

sorry for bumping old posts but i hadn't checked this thread for a month for some reason.

I sure hope they give that pavement back when they are done. It's a pain in the arse.

That's a good Twitter account. I like the postcard of 'Old and New Croydon' - can't believe the lack of traffic on Wellesley Road!
