Today five members of our new “Norbiteen” Children’s Enterprise; Chloe, Andrew, Harry, Reece and Alex successfully completed our first pilot month of Rewarded Volunteering.
They are seen in this picture after having received their Vouchers from our Vice Chair Harry Hall who thought of the idea of creating an Enterprise for 13 to 17yr olds as part of our One Norbiton TaskForce. Also in this picture is our Secretary Jill Preston who is administering the project and Josh one of our former local NEETs now being helped by Maundy Todd.
One Norbiton’s Housing sub-group suggested in 2012 that the Mezzanine floors of all the tower blocks should be made into 16 flats. The idea was soundly rejected then by Simon Oelman of RBK Housing on the grounds that the concrete could not be drilled to make windows. We now learn that this idea has not only been adopted but has been funded!
