BBC Two 'Back in Time' series
Wall to Wall Television ( – one of the country's leading independent television production companies. The company’s output includes Who Do You Think You Are? The Voice and The Gift for BBC One and Long Lost Family for ITV.  
They are looking for a London-based family to take part in another Back In Time social history experiment for BBC Two, summer 2015. 
They recently made a very popular BBC Two series called Back In Time For Dinner, in which a family ate their way through typical meals of the 1950s through to the 1990s. Following its huge success, they are looking for a family who, just like the Robshaws, will immerse themselves this time in the leisure and entertainment habits of decades past. They are looking for families with a minimum of two children aged 10+ who are available to film over the summer holidays of July and August 2015.  The family should have thoroughly modern leisure habits – turn to modern technology for entertainment and leisure time and enjoy weekend shopping and cinema trips. In the previous series they filmed at the family home and local businesses and amenities so it may be of interest to those who live in the area.
Back in Time For Dinner mum Rochelle said “it was a fantastically positive experience for the whole family”.Dad Brandon added: “Our eldest daughter said she had never laughed as much as she did that summer of filming. It was also a highly educative experience. We look back on it with a lot of pleasure.” He also wrote for The Independent on the family’s experience:
Any interested families should simply email to express an interest.  There is no commitment to take part at the initial enquiry stage, but they are encouraging applications ASAP.

Royal Mail changes

Led by Councillor Sean Fitzsimons, Croydon Council are reviewing the recent changes to Royal Mail postal services that have affected your postal area (specifically CR0 and CR7). Most significantly this has involved closing the Royal Mail collection office on Addiscombe Road and relocating to Factory Lane on the Wandle Park Industrial Estate. Smaller changes have included alterations to delivery routes and to postbox collection times.


To monitor the impact such changes have had on Croydon residents we have created a brief questionnaire which we would very much appreciate if you could share with your organisation’s members. This will give residents an opportunity to have a say on the recent changes and will feed in to Croydon Council’s Scrutiny and Strategic Overview committee.


The survey can be found here:

            Chase Residents needs you !

We need reps for Sundridge and Dalmally Roads

Becoming a street representative (and committee member) is very easy and not very time consuming. The committee meets on the first Monday of each month (excluding Bank Holidays) for a couple of hours and there will be some involvement in planning and running 2 or 3 events and delivering newsletters twice a year – you don’t even have to live in the particular road  to represent it. The reward is knowing that you can help people, offer a point of contact for the residents in the street, and make your environment and community better.

If you are interested and want to find out more, email Don Bates, our Chairman.
