Where in Croydon do you live?
Ruskin Square, East Croydon

How long have you lived in Croydon?
Almost 3 years

Where’s your favourite place to eat here?
I don’t eat a Vegan/ Plant-based diet but I love What The Pitta at Boxpark (specifically their vegan döner kebab). If I’m being healthy & cooking my own food, then you’ll find me taking the weekly visit to Surrey St Market for fresh fruit & vegetables. I’m trying to be proactive in reducing my consumption of single-use plastics, so Surrey St Market is a far better (and cheaper) option than the grocery aisle in supermarkets.

Where’s your favourite place to drink here?
The Joker, it’s an awesome addition to Croydon & I’m a big fan of their Kombucha Margarita

What’s your favourite thing to do in Croydon?
Making the most of the new Lime Bikes popping up in Croydon to cycle around and explore. My favourite moment since I moved here though was the crazy atmosphere of Boxpark last year, when watching England’s World Cup games.

What’s the coolest thing about Croydon?
Since I moved down to London 8 years ago, I’ve lived all over the place but I haven’t felt that sense of community that Croydon has. The people of Croydon don’t take themselves too seriously and I think that’s the best way to be.
