My Norland

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 supported projects for young and old people. Visit the ward spend page for a full breakdown.
