Our design would be to be able to purchase low energy Festive lights for Croydon's Restaurant Quarter and this would be for everyone in the area to enjoy and benefit from

Croydon Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The South Croydon Business Association represents over 100 businesses in Croydon’s Restaurant Quarter, which is a secondary High Street. The majority of these are small businesses from a diverse cultural background.
There is no budget for Festive Lights and the small businesses in the area cannot fund it themselves. We would like to ensure that our busiest annual period has lights. The Croydon BID supplies festive lights to the central commercial are, but this stops just outside the Restaurant Quarter, making the area look bare and forlorn, just at the time of year that businesses need it to look bright and festive.

What we'll deliver:

  • Purchase lights for the 43 lamp posts in the Restaurant Quarter
  • Arrange to have them stored
  • Arrange to have them put up
  • Arrange to have them removed at the end of the season

Why it's a great idea:

Because it is so necessary for the survival of the small businesses that are in the area. We have achieved so much to help the High Street to thrive in the last 3 years, but the lack of festive lighting at a time of year when we should be attracting as much retail trade as possible is a big problem. We hope to be able to keep the High street alive with the lighting at Christmas

Steps to get it done:

  • Get contractors to provide quotations and pick the best scheme
