London Road Croydon


3 December 2014

Getting ready for the consultation event tomorrow at Croydon Voluntary Action, 82 London Road CR0 2TB. The discussion will be based around the new web portal for London Road launching in spring 2015. We are working with Croydon Council and the GLA on a website aimed at celebrating the different cultures, backgrounds and traditions of the people living and working in the area. The website want to be a resourceful tool for the community of London Road at large, to help increase footfall, attract visitors and help business thrive.
