PBC is involved in the group in Purley which is working to regenerate the high street. The panel has secured £20,000 of funding from the Mayor of London and is hoping to secure £200,000 more. Please could you complete this short 2-minute survey about a proposal to use the disused car park for community events. The more people who participate, the greater the chances of Purley securing the grant!  Deadline: 1 October. Complete the survey HERE.
