West Norwood Feast is back again in 2021 on Sunday April 4th between 10am and 4pm. The stalls will be hot & cold food stalls only: Food Fair stalls will be spaced out safely in St Lukes church gardens SE27 0DT and the Fresh n Green stalls in the Village Green around the Leisure Centre in Devane Way SE27 0DF.
Next month Feast is hoping, lockdown rules permitting, to open its full range of stalls in the early May bank holiday weekend – Sunday 2nd May.

There will be over 45 stalls at the West Norwood Christmas markets this Saturday 12th Dec 11am to 3pm. Visit the stalls centred around Norwood High St beside St Luke’s church SE27 0DT. There’s something for everyone!

The Roman Catholic secondary school for girls on Central Hill SE19 1RS is planning to close in August 2021.
Admissions were suspended for year 7 students in September 2020. Year 8 , 9 & 11 students are attending the Virgo Fidelis site but Year 10 students are attending St Marys in West Croydon CR9 2EE
Virgo Fidelis no longer has a 6th form and pupil rolls have been falling recently – with a corresponding impact on school budgets. The Victorian buildings date back to 1848 and so are exepensive to repair.
Croydon council is consulting on the closure – to have a say fill in the form linked below before the deadline of Oct 23rd.
Every year the council asks residents what they think about our local parks. During 2020 lockdown and social distancing parks have been the best place for exercise, relaxation and the place to meet friends and family.
Our local parks include: Knights Hill Wood, Norwood Park, St Luke’s church, Streatham Common and Tivoli Park.
To have a say and suggest improvements to your favourite local park please fill in this quick survey by Saturday 31st October:
Things have changed around a little since last year and Feast is now on three sites: Food Fair at St Luke’s Church , Artisans’ Market at Chatworth Way and Village Green in Devane Way SE27 0DF . Due to social distancing there is no picnicing in St Luke’s Gardens.
