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.

Winter Event – Can you help?

The residents’ association are planning a winter event shortly and would welcome volunteers to help with cakes/man stalls or share your interests with neighbours.

If you are able to support this fantastic event please contact us via email at and let us know.


Community Clean Up & Skips

On Friday 21st October and Saturday 22nd October two community skips will be in the Norwoods for residents to use. Please use the skips to clear out your gardens and back yards. As the weather turns colder, mice and other mammals will be looking for easy sources of food and warmth. A warden will be on hand to offer advice on a variety of services offered by the council including bulkywaste, removal of vermin, their responsibilities on putting out refuse bins and their collection, etc.

On Saturday 22nd the Norwood Neighbourhood Association will be carrying out a survey to identify the needs and wants of the community as well as assisting in a general clean.

On the Friday, funding has been sourced for a community clear up team to visit the area and clear litter and fly-tipped rubbish.
