Residents can also ask questions and raise any matter or topic.

RRA Litter Pick -
Since its inception in November 2016, residents who have joined us on the 6 monthly RRA litter picks have collected in the region of 240 bags of rubbish from streets, farm and woodland in our area. In addition the Riddlesdown Collegiate school children and local cubs and beavers have also done their bit in keeping our area clean with their own litter picks.
So why not join us on Saturday 6 April from 2pm (to 3.30pm) to have another spring clean of our area? Please meet in the usual place at the bottom of Dunmail Drive at the Mitchley Hill end. All litter picking equipment and light plastic gloves will be supplied by the Council. Please wear good strong footwear.

Riddlesdown RA and all the local Residents' Associations have made a donation to the Royal British Legion for poppies recently displayed on local lampposts. All Croydon residents are also invited to join the Residents' Associations by making a donation if they wish, to support this cause, maybe in memory of a relative, or friend. The Riddlesdown Residents’ Association have set up a ‘JustGiving’ page where Croydon residents can give a donation. Thank you to all who made a donation.
