Norwood Forum emails and website

We hope you like our new website! Our intention is this revamped website will become a vauable resource for our Norwood community. We will publish all the latest news and events happening in Norwood - all things Norwood including regeneration, public meetings, local businesses, what's going on, and where to eat, shop and meet up together.  This new website then is the place to look when you want to track down that local event, item of news or where to go in Norwood.

As always, let us know about events and news so we can keep everyone in the loop.
