Mayor to meet with local people from Croydon and Sutton

13 May 2013

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson will meet with people living and working in Croydon and Surrey when the latest community reception takes place at City Hall on Tuesday 14 May.

Those attending will include representatives from local businesses, public bodies, voluntary organisations and faith groups, as well as cultural organisations, schools, and other community groups.

Minority ethnic communities, LGBT communities and disabled Londoners will also be represented.

The Mayor said: 'Our community receptions are an informal opportunity to meet with Londoners from every corner of the capital and I am delighted to welcome local people from Croydon and Sutton to City Hall. We want to harness the enthusiasm and dynamism of local communities and businesses in every borough. We all have a role to play in the future prosperity of our city and need to work together to face the challenges ahead.'

Since 2008 the Mayor will have hosted 16 community receptions, part of an extensive programme of engagement with Londoners which also includes two People's Question Times a year and monthly twitter sessions.
