Sanderstead SNT Police Meeting
The next ‘Sanderstead SNT Ward Panel Public Meeting’ will be held at Riddlesdown Collegiate, Honister Heights, Purley CR8 1EX on Tuesday 17th July at 6.30pm.
This year is 100 years since the end of the First World War and the Royal British Legion (RBL) will be launching a ‘Thank You Movement from 8th August to run through 100 days until Armistice Day on Sunday 11 November. They are also inviting members of the public to say "Thank You" to all those who served, sacrificed and changed our world.’
Riddlesdown Residents' Association have been approached by the RBL and along with a number of other local RAs, we will join the movement by fixing 45cm poppies on lamp posts to some main thoroughfares in Riddlesdown from 8 August. Croydon Council and Skanska (who maintain the street lighting) have been very supportive in allowing the RAs to do this. Other local RAs will do the same in Sanderstead, Selsdon, Coulsdon and Old Coulsdon.
The RRA are making a donation for 50 poppies to the RBL fund.
We will advise before 8 August how the public can also support this cause.
