A year in the life of our Community
Please join us on Saturday 9 July to celebrate all that's brilliant about our amazing community. We will look back over the past 12 months - both the challenges and successes, and discuss the big issues we are facing in the coming year - as well as the fun things.
There will also be a chance to meet our new councillors, debate the next steps for the community campaign against the Sites 18 & 19 developments, hear exciting plans for the 2022 Wild Norwood Festival - and meet lots of other local organisations such as West Norwood Feast and West Norwood Free Film Festival. We will also be launching our Community Grants Scheme for 2022/23.
Norwood Forum: Community - in any language
Your community needs you - whether your interest is in sustainability, the arts, comms, politics, the built environment, engagement, or young people ...
Do you have green fingers? A terrific way with a spread sheet? Are you interested in the latest Health and Wellbeing initiatives?
Have you got 5mins to spare once a month, or looking to spend a regular afternoon helping a community project move forward?
All this and much, much more - is all yours with Norwood Forum.
Intrigued? Get in touch: email@example.com and come along to our annual Community Round-up on Saturday 9 July to meet us.
Volunteering with Norwood Forum is also a real opportunity to learn and develop new skills, or use and hone existing ones (e.g. organising meetings, presentation skills, writing articles, social media, website administration, project management). Whether you have never volunteered before, have loads of experience or only recently begun helping your neighbours during Covid-19 and would like to do some more – we are interested in your fresh ideas, perspectives and skills.
