On Friday 17th of February One Norbiton, AfC (Achieving for Children) and Oxygen held the first meeting of the youth club we have set up to replace the Norbiteens. The photo above shows those who attended.The age group will be 13 to 17 and it will meet on term time Wednesday evenings at 5.30 in Piper Hall. The teenagers themselves have chosen the name NY@PH which stands for ‘New Youth at Piper Hall’. If you know any local teens who might be interested they can contact Jill on 1norbiton@gmail.com

Congratulations Norbiteens!

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 suggestion for new flats adopted.

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!
