There has been community power in action this weekend in Norbury Hall Park. The Friends have been out in force giving the park a good tidy-up before winter.

We were joined by some new volunteers, which was really fantastic. Plus Norbury & Pollards Hill’s elected member Councillor Shafi Khan also got stuck into the hedges with a litter picker, which was wonderful to see.

The new Friends of Norbury Hall Park high-vis bibs received their debut. If you were walking through the park this morning you couldn’t have missed us, we were a sea of luminous yellow.

We collected some twenty or so bags of rubbish from all corners of the park, which was a great team effort. Sadly, these included a rug, duvet and pillow, which suggests someone has been sleeping rough in the park at some point. Please do keep an eye out and let us know if you see anything of this nature.


All in all, it was a really successful litter-pick. More photos of the clean-up can be found on our Facebook page or on our Twitter feed.
