“Know from whence you came. If you know whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go.” — James Baldwin.

Inspired by one James Baldwin quote, powered by Team Catford, we welcome you to The Catford Chronicle. The digital home for Catford’s stories; celebrating the people of today and keeping our history alive. As Team Catford consults for the regeneration of Catford, we understand the importance of documenting and archiving Catford’s richness. We aim to champion the voices of Catford.

Where were we 30 years ago and how does that differ from where we are today? What do you know about Catford that no one else does? Who are Catford’s community leaders and what are their stories? Do you know about a cultural movement emerging from Catford? What makes Catford special to you? What are your hopes for the future of Catford?

Whatever your story, whether you were born and raised in Catford or have lived in the area for a few years, we want to hear it! We want this space to be for Catford, by Catford.

We accept written, photographic and video submissions.
