The Wrythe

St Helier, Wandle Valley and The Wrythe are joined together under the bracket of the Northern wards.

In July 2004 The Northern Wards Community Forum was created. The Northern Wards Forum is a group of local community representatives and councillors working for the benefit of the three Northern Wards.

The aim of the Forum is to tackle a range of social and environmental issues to create a better environment for local people. This is done by working in partnership with a range of organisations, for example health services and environmental groups. The Forum will also work with residents to influence local policies and initiate and develop various projects. 

The Wrythe borders the wards of Sutton, Carshalton and Wallington. The Wrythe is mostly made up from residential roads with some open spaces. There is Royston Park to the west of the ward and a nature reserve to the east. The River Wandle also runs through this ward.

Carshalton College is situated in The Wrythe and provides further and higher education services. Carshalton College's buildings and facilities are uniquely modern and have an excellent reputation, with one of the best inspection reports in South London. Carshalton was one of the first colleges to achieve Centre of Vocational Excellence status from the Learning and Skills Council.

Just behind Carshalton College are the Denmark Road offices for the London Borough of Sutton, which supply environment and leisure services to the borough.
