We Are Bromley – A week of events to celebrate our local community
We Are Bromley Week (22-28 August) is a week of events designed to inspire local people and businesses in Bromley to celebrate our local community with fun activities, discounts and freebies.
The week, which is co-ordinated by Citygate Food+,will raise funds for Food+ Bromley, a charity which helps vulnerable people in Bromley by providing fresh food to those in food poverty and practical assistance to those most in need.
The week encourages the community to generate good community spirit and cohesion by doing something nice for someone else.
Free workshops, activities, events and performances will be held throughout the week at the community hub in intu Bromley’s main concourse (outside M&S) and culminates in a Jazz, Cocktail and Canapes night at Citygate Food+, Rectory Road, Beckenham on Friday 27 August. Local people can also organise their own event.

The drop-in event aims to help build relationships between local businesses and charitable organisations in the London Borough of Bromley. Instead of financial support, businesses are encouraged to help in other ways such as volunteering and offering specialist advice.
This year’s event follows a successful inaugural event last March, which saw over 25 voluntary organisations and over 40 business representatives get together to explore ways of working together. Business participants were surprised to learn that it that it is not ‘all about the money’ and that the benefits are two-way, with lots of different ways that voluntary organisations and businesses can work together for mutual benefit.
