take part take pride - for information

Sutton Council is again launching its annual Take Part Take Pride campaign (TPTP).


This year’s theme is ‘Community Cohesion’.  TPTP 2007 brings together various departments, partners, community groups, local councillors and residents to promote a shared sense of purpose, participation and pride in Sutton.  The campaign will culminate in a week of activities from 3-10 June 2007.


Last year’s TPTP event was a great success with hundreds of residents turning out during the week to participate in a range of events across Sutton. Activities ranged from celebrating diversity and promoting community safety at the Safer Sutton Partnership’s ‘Wandle Carnival’ to clearing the River Wandle.  In fact, the campaign was such a huge success that other councils across the country are considering adopting it.


This year, we would like to encourage as many council departments, partners, community groups, local councillors and residents to join us in promoting this initiative. If you have an event, project or would like to create one that chimes with the Take Part Take Pride theme then we urge you to get involved.


With your help we can make this year’s event even better.


Should you require further information or want to get involved, please contact Katherine Hudson on 020 8770 5330 or email For additional information, visit


The Chair requested that members’ ideas and initiatives be passed on to Katherine Hudson as given on the agenda.
