Whitestone way crash with an energy unit.
19/03/2018 21:30:00.......Posted by Donald Ekekhomen

Last night there was a crash to an energy unit on Whitestone way in waddon at about 8pm. This caused damage to a gas main causing a leak and as a result approximately 800 properties in the vicinity was evacuated by the police.

SGN who look affect the gas network in the south of England and Scotland has been able to stop the leak and are working to repair the damage to the gas mains . Currently, electricity  is currently being restored to all of the affected properties on Whitestone way. SGN engineers are continuing to work on site to re-establish the gas supply to properties as quickly as possible.

The council led on the work on supporting the residents evacuated and rest centres were set up at the Salvation Army Citadel centre and Waddon Leisure Centre. We have received excellent support from the Salvation Army, Red Cross and GLL- the new leisure centre operator. The council is also working with voluntary sector partners, welfare services and the CCG to ensure vulnerable residents with specific health needs are cared for.

Residents that were placed in the waddon leisure centre have been conveyed home as electricity have been restored to the buildings but the gas supply will be restored in the early hours of Tuesday, 20/3/2018.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff from the council who have worked tirelessly throughout the night to help our residents during this incident and all those who have volunteered to work today.

Waddon community breakfast at St George's church
31/10/2017.......Posted by Donald Ekekhomen

At the hall of St George's church, the tables were laid for breakfast, full English breakfast. It was one of the regular monthly activities at this church for senior citizens and like minded people of waddon who fancy a meal while interacting with their neighbours. It was an amazing and enjoyable experience for me having only just heard about it. It provided an activity for older residents to help combat loneliness and for me, a great chance to meet with residents and listen to what affects them. What they needed changing by Croydon council and how they wanted it done. 



Meeting Waddon residents at the diversity festival
14/10/2017.......Posted by Donald Ekekhomen

We were at the annual waddon diversity festival at St. George's church. The theme of the festival was "It's all about community". It was a very well attended event which had the St Michael's and All angels Steel Band Orchestra, award winners at the 2017 Notting Hill Carnival opening the event. It also had support from The Young @heart dance group, The Phoenix group of senior citizens, The Cameroon North West cultural association and activities like the lunchtime workshop and a traditional head tie exercise from Nigeria.  This event highlighted the communal need for one another to live in a safe place in love and responsibility to our neighbours. The local conservative team was there chatting,participating in this community event as always while answering individual questions from the community . It was a really lovely event meeting the diverse members of our community.




Waddon ward panel meeting
29/09/2017.......Posted by Donald Ekekhomen

, I attended the waddon ward policing meeting at the Hilton Hotel, Purley way. In the meeting ,we had conversations around how well to Police the ward using the new police strategy. We listened to the spots in the ward where extra policing based on current reports is needed and how the police is attending to it. It was a great opportunity to meet the wonderful ward police team and other residents of the ward with concerns about policing. It was however very shocking that no current sitting councillor in the ward attended the meeting. This view was expressed strongly by other attendees at the meeting.



Meeting of the friends of wandle park
17/09/2017.......Posted by Donald Ekekhomen

We attended the friends of wandle park meeting. At the meeting , we learnt about the withdrawal of Croydon council funding from the park making it very difficult to manage the park and it's facilities. We were very surprised at this as we thought it s a very well used park wth tremendous heritage and as such, is one that the council should preserve. We however, constituted various committees to help look at managing the park including sourcing for funds to help keep existing activities at the park and at same time, explore new activities for the park. It was a great example of the community taking action to preserve it's assets after being let down by the council and we were very excited about the prospects of the park.
