Join our Litterpick (Sunday 23rd October 2016)

Join The Litter-Pick Bus!

SAM_2878 (Large)On Sunday, we’ve organised another community litter-pick.  It follows the same route as we did last time.  Basically, we’re starting at Shipley C of E School (back gate), cleaning up around the school, then moving onto the playing field opposite and then the Norwoods, Clifton, Place, Bargrange Av and surrounds.  Do join us.  You can see pics from our previous event in earlier posts.

You can join for just a bit if you don’t fancy spending the whole afternoon.  Or just do a bit on your street – whatever suits. We call it the litter pick bus because you can hop on and off as you see fit.  The bits in red below are the areas we envisage cleaning – if you want to do another street, we won’t stop you!  You can use out litter pickers how you like.


Start At back gate Shipley C or E – meet at 1:30

C of E pick area

Next the Playing field (from about 2pm)

Then all the Norwoods (for an hour – starting at 2:30pm)


Then Clifton Place and Bargrange Av (from 3:30pm)



We’ll be meeting back at the playing field (Norwoods side) to discuss the future of the Redbeck Allotments site that the Norwood Neighbourhood Association has been planning good things for.  You can join us if you like.

See you Sunday!

Litterpick Bus – Gallery

Our Litterpick Event held on Sunday 28th of February was a great success!

Thanks a lot to everybody that took part – we didn’t get everyone’s names but it included children and parents from Shipley C or E School, Green Councillor Kevin Warnes and a wide range of residents and their kids.  Special shout out to the lads who pushed the trolley with litter pickers around for hours.

Well done everyone and well done Norwood Neighbourhood Association.  The place looks 100 times better!

We are going to spend an hour tidying up the litter and dumped items from down the street. We want to clean up and re-cycle what we can. This event was a great success last March when 15 residents helped out. These back-streets can be nice, safe and clean places
to walk up and down and for children to play in, or just nicer to look out on!

Community Event Planned for 27th September 1-3pm

Apologies, it’s been a while since we have posted anything to the website but several exciting developments have been going on in the Norwoods.

Currently, plans are under way for another community event at Redbeck Gardens. We plan to have giant games, tombola, lots of cakes, fun and frolics and also have the aim of doing a clear-up of the site – so bring decent shoes and be prepared to roll your sleeves up. Or alternatively you can just come down for a chat.

Hope to see you there. More details will be posted soon.

Resident’s Survey Results

Resident’s Survey Results

Thanks to everyone who took part in our Resident’s survey at the back end of 2011. There was an excellent response rate. A copy of the full report is available to down load . The report will also be available in print at our AGM on the 1st April 2012.

What did we ask? The survey asked questions about Community areas, Community spirit, Appearance, Crime and anti-social behaviour, Planning and land development, traffic management and information requirements. Of these, you told us that your key priorities were:

  • Litter and Fly-tipping
  • Reducing Crime and Anti-social Behaviour
  • Traffic Management, Road Safety and Speed Reduction

What Now? As a result of the survey we have spoken to representatives from the local police and council who endorse the report. They have also agreed to work with us to implement a number of improvements as a result of the survey. Watch out as improvements are made over the coming months.
