One key issue may turn out to be whether the members of the community who are shooting and killing each other are interested.Partly in response to the various stabbing incidents in South Norwood recently, a group calling itself South Norwood Action Group has been set up. It looks like it is wanting to work with young people in the area to divert them away from activities which could lead to violent assaults and knife crime.
It is on facebook, if anyone is interested.

Yes, it is. Although it has not yet submitted its first year accounts.Re Stanley's Film Club / Screen25, i believe it is registered as a Community Interest Company, which is used for Social Enterprises, and has some financial restrictions, albeit i'm not exactly sure what those are.
Yes, just to pipe on this, CICs are a bit of a bogus non-profit form really. The regulation is so light as to be almost non-existent, the only limit on director's salaries is if it threatens the nature of the work, and there don't seem to be any limits on contracting out, which means you could easily, say, pay a cleaning company (that you own) to do all your cleaning, with charges at such a level that all the money is extracted from the CIC.Yes, it is. Although it has not yet submitted its first year accounts.
So it can’t make a profit. But it can pay the founder/director a salary, which it does, and it can use unpaid interns (at least, until that is made illegal) and volunteers.
In your opinion…A complete and utter waste of public money to keep "the new demographic" entertained?:
"Croydon Council is inviting submissions for a new £50,000 art installation for the Portland Road bridge underpass in South Norwood, south-east London ..."
Competition: Portland Road bridge, South Norwood
The foot tunnel was kind of renovated not long ago, but it is tatty again already and is a bit of a hangout for some kids... I don't like to walk through itIn your opinion…
If it sorts out the dark, dirty and unwelcoming underpass then it’s money very well spent. Particularly as the only other alternative is the Norwood Junction tunnel, also in need of some investment…
It took me a few minutes to work out what was wrong with "Silverdene", even though I was in there yesterday. I thought it might just be that I know it as the "Goathouse", but then it popped in to my brain.As I hoped the Silverdene pub was the beginning replacing the terrible Spoons pub. Revamped South Norwood is starting to thrive culturally and commercially again. Great to see that a craft beer shop will soon be opening near the Clocktower and a branch of Mamma Dough in the old Emertons building. Fantastic news for South Norwood more please
I didn't know anyone on here supported the old Wetherspoons. I don't remember that. It wasn't good, although it did have the advantage of being a pub that I was happy to go in on my own - I used to go in there when I was waiting for someone to come via Norwood Junction, for example - and it was cheap.Guineveretoo thanks for correcting my post and good to see that you are also a patron of the new pub, it has been a huge improvement for the area and I'm sure has helped attract other businesses since it opened. Seems all those dissenting posts a while back supporting the old 'Spoons' were wrong. By the way where are they?
