creating a new path for New Addington

When the hoardings were set up around the construction site for the new leisure centre for safety reasons, they created a dark alleyway from Central Parade to Chertsey Crescent. Croydon Council asked for ideas to improve the walkway and our idea won!

Nominations for Heroes open Wednesday 18 October & close Monday 4 December 2017

what is Heroes Walk about ?

Heroes Walk is about unsung local people who have gone the extra mile for New Addington. Running down one side of this walkway are twenty lights -  underneath each of them will be an image of a successful nominee. If your nomination wins, your hero will be celebrated at day and at night. There will also be artwork created by local volunteers and artists.

who could be nominated as a Hero ?

You decide who should be nominated. You can be as imaginative or as creative as you like. If you know someone who has selflessly dedicated their time, or has inspired people to be proud of New Addington, then you should nominate them to be celebrated. Who is your local hero ?

who will be taking the photographs ?

The photographs will be taken by one of the UK’s leading street photographers, Amadeus Long. He's become famous on Instagram for his unique and stylish shots of London, which has led to him being interviewed on television and exhibited at art festivals.

who will be creating the artwork ?

The artwork on the walls of the hoardings and around the photographs will be created by Zincstyles, a street artist from East London. He will be working with a team of volunteers and students from Croydon, and will be getting inspiration from the Active Addington competition campaign being run in schools.

who is paying for all this ?

This is an arts project that involves the local community, bringing people together and celebration into the local area. Croydon Council has provided money for this project from their arts budget. No public services have been affected by funding this project. This project is being curated and run by Kobi from The Fynn - an arts management company.
