Is That What’s Missing


Aha! I think I may have worked out what niggles me about Croydon. I was wandering round it a little over a week ago, actually into bits I hadn’t been before, and knew there was something about the whole place that was bugging me, I just couldn’t work it out. I think I’ve realised—No students. At least, no University students. I’m used to living somewhere with universities (Newcastle has my original alma mater and Northumbria; even York had both York and York St John). Croydon, nothing. Replete as London is with Universities they’re all removed from where I live, and I think that’s what’s missing. I’m so used to that student scene and vibe at least being present. Come to that, my favourite other city, Liverpool, is a University place too, so there we go.
