King George’s Field Recreation Ground
13/04/2018 08:54:00......Posted by Sas Conradie

 
 

Another of Selhurst’s parks and green spaces which has found itself unprotected after Labour’s local plan, King George’s Field Recreation Ground is a major span of greenery that acts as the natural lungs of the neighbourhood.

It is a great place for walks with friends, pets, family, and partners, with a certain tranquil beauty; a place to step out of the hustle and bustle of urban Selhurst and relax.

As your local candidate I will campaign to protect this area, and if elected a Conservative Council has pledged to do just that.

Boulogne Road Playground: an asset to the comunity of Selhurst
07/04/2018 19:25:00.......Posted by Sophia James-Hoar

 
 

There are many children in Selhurst for whom Boulogne Road Playground has been a real part of their growing up. That is why I was shocked to find it had lost its protections from development under Labour’s local plan.

A place which keeps children off the street and gives them somewhere to play and form happy memories is deeply important, and if we lose this playground it cannot easily be replaced.

That is why I am campaigning as a Conservative, for a Council that is on your side -  one which will protect important community spaces like Boulogne Road Playground.

Selhurst Ward has the 3rd highest youth crime rate in the Croydon Borough. I was therefore very excited to have been able to attend a brilliant performance by the BRIT School on Monday the 12th of February to raise awareness of knife crime. Many important questions related to vulnerable families and young people, poverty, involvement in gangs, peer pressure and the impact of crime were raised. Afterwards there was an interesting panel discussion during which issues around identity, youth involvement in decision making and engaging the community in reducing youth crime were raised. The School in collaboration with the Metropolitan Police would like to take the production to schools and community groups across Croydon and even in London. This initiative should be supported. I hope that community groups including faith based groups would make use of this opportunity to talk about knife and youth crime in Selhurst Ward in particular and Croydon in general. What is clear is that we need a much more joined up approach to youth crime in Croydon that should come from the community itself instead from being imposed from the top.
