Changes to the 315 bus route

Cllr Jane Pickard at the York Hill stop

A proposal to extend the 315 bus route to Peabody estate ( near Tulse Hill station) means the 315 bus would no longer travel to Norwood High Street, Ernest Avenue and Knight’s Hill, including the stops for West Norwood Station and the present terminus at Cheviot Road.
The Mayor of London’s Transport for London (TfL) is now consulting on these proposed changes and there is a chance to see the plans and speak to TFL on Thursday 2nd July between 3pm and 8.30pm at Aspire Centre, 1 Park Hall Road SE21 8EH ( at end of Robson Road) and Thursday 16th July 3pm to 8.30pm at The Portico Gallery, 23c Knights Hill SE27 0HS.

More details and an online survey are at: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/route-315

Monday 10th August is closing date for this formal consultation

Shop to change

IMG-20150612-02028The Community shop is a members shop that  redistributes food & household products from major retailers and brands. The surplus products may have minor label errors , be excess seasonal products or have a short shelf life  and would therefore normally be thrown away as a waste by the retailers.

The shop is open 9am to 5pm weekdays. People living in the Norwood area and who are on benefits are eligible to become members. The products are on sale to shop members at around 30% of normal prices. Based in Vale St SE27 9PA  the Community Shop is now  6 months old and already has  500 members.

Clara, the shop manager

The Community Shop helps people on low incomes who are working hard to improve their lives. Each member signs up to a tailored, professional development programme. So the Shop is not about crisis support – which is provided by the food bank – but an extended support programme that will lead to real change in the lives of local households.
