New Year – New Priorities

This New Year is  one of change for me.

I will be spending much less time on Croydon affairs to concentrate on my history project priorities. My blog postings will be less often and shorter.

To keep up with Croydon events you can keep your eye on Croydon Advertiser, Croydon Guardian, Inside Croydon and Just Croydon websites and You could sign up to a Google alert on Croydon, but while this will not show every mention posted on the internet, it will give you items from the first three mentioned above. You can also sign up to receive the Council’s Your Croydon news compilation, and to Bernard Winchester’s monthly diary of heritage and cultural events in  and around Croydon:
