My Norland

Norland Councillors have just been elected and are getting started with City Living, Local Life.

Over the last year or so, Norland Councillors have worked to ensure local people could access local information online and have funded the Pavlova Diaries (now known as The Notting Hill Post) to host information about local events, activities, promotions etc. They have also funded another project, Aspire 2 Inspire to help young people become job ready and gain access to mentors. Norland ward has also prioritised support to older residents, by setting up regular lunch clubs facilitated by AgeUK Kensington and Chelsea. Working alongside local amenity groups and the council’s Community Garden Team, Councillors also supported the improvement to planters along Holland Park Avenue. Total spend last year was £12,745.00.
