Accessible Beckenham

In February, local resident Gill Morphy who is an electric wheelchair user, and Jackie Groundsell and Marsha Berg from the Beckenham Business Association, delivered ‘Portable Ramp Available’ stickers to retailers on Beckenham High Street.

The ‘ramp available’ stickers were issued after an Accessibility Audit had been carried out in Beckenham High Street relating to the accessibility of goods and services for wheelchair users and the less mobile in the community, including pram access.

Site visits were made to 190 premises between 9th and 14th November 2018 to every street level premises in Beckenham High Street.

The Accessibility Audit was sponsored by Beckenham Together.

Clock House Celebrates Autumn

We were thrilled to be at the inaugural Clock House Celebrates event last Friday, 5 October.

A collaboration between a number of local businesses and organisations, including Three Hounds Beer, Beckenham Together BID, the Purple Flag and Link Asset Services, the event was organised to celebrate Beckenham’s prestigious Purple Flag award for its night time economy.

A number of local traders were located between the Library, the Spa and Venue 28, along with live music and a children’s book reading session. There were lots of food and drink stalls, plus several local traders selling great gifts and items and the atmosphere was buzzing!
