Boris visits Croydon Central for third time since riots
07/09/2011 15:58:00

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, was in the constituency for the third time since the riots yesterday, meeting with residents and businesses in New Addington who were affected by the attack on Central Parade (pictured with Marion and Paul from Pathfinders and Cllr Tony Pearson). He also took time out to thank the staff of the Addington Community Association who opened their doors in the middle of the night to provide shelter to those who had to abandon their flats above the shops on Central Parade.

It is great to see him taking such an interest in Croydon’s recovery and I took the opportunity to lobby him for a generous allocation from the fund he has set up to support the recovery of town centres damaged by the riots on 8th August.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
