The issue includes columns by former MP Andrew Pelling and councillor Stuart Collins, a fascinating piece on the work of the renowned Croydon artist Cicely Mary Barker, some offers from local businesses and traders, and all within a seasonal cover featuring the unique Shirley poppy.
There is also more important information about the under-threat (or not) Shirley Library by local historian Mike Jackson.
