South Norwood Tourist Board announces referendum on SE25 leaving Croydon...and joining bonnie Scotland

THE South Norwood Tourist Board (SNTB) has announced a referendum over whether SE25 should leave Croydon - and join bonnie Scotland. Associates of the SNTB have asked residents to vote on September 11 – at polling stations around South Norwood a week prior to the Scottish independence vote – on whether the area should go tartan. Voters will also be asked if they want South Norwood to break away from Croydon entirely and if it should become the People's Republic of South Norwood. It is not thought Croydon Council is prepared to sanction the plans but the Advertiser understands the SNTB doesn't really care either way. Ian Bone, SNTB associate, has also extended an invite to Scottish National Party leader Alex Salmond to come down and secure vital votes in the build-up to the referendum. The count is set to take place at McStanley Halls, with a reception afterwards at Haggis Academy South Norwood. SE25 has almost no links to Scotland, save for Crystal Palace legends Jim Cannon and George Burley, as well as former Woodside councillor Karen Jewitt. But Mr Bone thinks the union could work in South Norwood's favour – although some Scots fear it could instigate the South Norwood question. The SNTB previously launched a bid to have South Norwood recognised as a second Lake District and also started a festival celebrating the life of Pickles, the dog who found the 1966 World Cup in a bush in Beulah Hill. South Norwood is at least 350 miles away from the English-Scottish border. Are you a Scottish person living in South Norwood? Please contact newsdesk@croydonadvertiser.co.uk
