The next Norwood Society talk is ‘The Norwood Society - The Early Days’ by Vice-Chair Jerry Green. 19 May 7.30pm. At the Upper Norwood Library, Westow Hill. It will be followed by our Annual General Meeting to which all are welcome: Chair's Annual report, Finance report & election of Officers & Committee & refreshments. Donations much appreciated.
Our founder members would be gratified to see Norwood today with its many interesting buildings retained. A sub-committee reviews planning applications in SE19, SE25 and SE27. Where it finds that plans for alterations and new buildings do not improve or enhance a location, comments are sent to the relevant Planning Authorities. The Norwood Society maintains an interest in major developments in the Norwood area, and where possible provides active support to residents’ groups and other amenity societies in objecting to them where they adversely affect the character of the area, or are otherwise unsuitable.
The Society organises guided walks in the Summer months. It also organises a programme of illustrated talks for 9 months of the year. These are interesting and sociable events with time for refreshments. Our members are informed of these meetings through the Norwood Review and by email, through the website and social media.
Since its foundation the Society has published its quarterly Norwood Review where you will find updates on planning applications, book reviews and numerous articles on local people and events in times past.
This website brings in many enquiries from researchers and individuals. Many articles, written over many years, have been reproduced here. On this website you will also find details of the publications that we stock and which may be ordered.
