Cemetery tours every first Sunday
There are traces of Norwood’s past everywhere and a great way to find out more is to join a free history walk led by local experts. Every first Sunday of the month there is a guided tour of history of West Norwood Cemetery at 2.30pm http://www.fownc.org/. We can see Henry Tate’s gardens in May or September. There are tours of West Norwood & Upper Norwood in June, July & August. And if you are curious about the hidden river Effra put 11th and 25th September in your diary.
Details of these walks on our Events page
If you are not keen on meetings but have things to say about the future of West Norwood – then take a look at this new web site and its interactive map.
https://westnorwoodandtulsehill.commonplace.is/ It’s easy to mark the places you like and the places you would like to see improved. The map covers the area from Tulse Hill one-way system along Norwood Road & Knights Hill to Chapel Road.
Cllr Meldrum at a workshop at Tulse Hill
Information input to the website will be part of a programme of public events, workshops and exhibitions during the spring and summer to discuss what people want for their community and neighbourhood. The council wants to end up with a new 2017 plan for future improvements and investment in West Norwood.
The last West Norwood master plan was in 2009 – we have seen many changes and improvements since then including new schools and the Health & Leisure Centre. ( Work should be starting very soon on the library –cinema in Nettlefold Hall and upgrading of the South London Theatre. )
