After seeing a letter in our local paper calling the area I love a dump, I wondered if any of our elected representatives would stand up and defend our fantastic community.
I’m sure you have seen the Guardian letter, South Norwood does get overlooked and Addiscombe always appears to be compared more favourably – even in election run up!
I hope someone is going to comment on this as none actually properly stands up and says how wonderful South Norwood is, promoting its positive points.
As elected representatives of SE25 I would hope that you will address this issue. I understand if Mr Barwell remains quiet as it has always been evident from the past 8 years that the Tories would quite happily see this area decline, having put no investment or support to our wonderful community.
A quick response may stop this feeling growing within the area.

The response I got from Steve Reed MP was this:
You might be interested in this story about a public meeting I recently addressed in South Norwood where I talked about regenerating the area and also about its strengths.
My response to which I’m waiting a reply.
