Mayor Perry – Listening to Croydon

Summer holiday clubs

The summer holidays are a busy time for parents and we are working closely with our communities to support children and young people and make sure they have a great summer. The Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme at the council has supported 67 schemes across Croydon with government funding. I was delighted to meet children at one of the schemes funded by our housing service, in Regina Road, and learn more about the activities they have been enjoying this summer. Find out more.

Day of action

Making Croydon cleaner and safer for residents, businesses and visitors is a top priority for me. Our day of action in our town centre last week was a great example of the council working with its partners to tackle antisocial behaviour, such as street drinking, while supporting vulnerable people to get the help they need. I was pleased to join a team on street and speak to some of our local businesses about issues they are experiencing – I will keep listening to them and all of you so that, together, we can make Croydon cleaner, safer and restore pride in our town.

Croydon Mayor’s Question Time

I’m always keen to hear the views of residents on local issues and look forward to answering your questions at my next Question Time. I’ve been hosting the events around the borough and the next one is in Norbury on Tuesday, 5 September. Register your place and put forward a question on the issues that matter most in your area. Book your place.

Jamaican Independence Day

Finally, I was proud to attend the raising of the Jamaican national flag on Monday to mark Jamaican Independence Day. Croydon has one of the largest populations of Jamaican people in the country and it was important to recognise the incredible contributions of the Jamaican community to our borough.
