Village Way Crossing Petition
A safe crossing is urgently needed on Village Way (in central Beckenham) by the cut through to Kelsey Way for the Harris Schools. The junction of Village Way and Whitmore Road is a busy route for local children, parents, grandparents and childminders on their way to Harris Primary and Harris Secondary School on Manor Way. SIGN THE PETITION HERE.
Beckenham parents were shocked on 2 September when they turned up to their Baby Clinic at the Beacon to find it has been closed down without warning. The service had previously been run by Bromley Healthcare as part of the health visiting services but these services were moved to Oxleas trust on 1 October after the contract had quietly been put out to tender by the Council earlier this year. Unbelievably the new provider will not be providing this service at the Beacon or anywhere else in Beckenham. Parents will now need to travel to the Penge Community Vision Centre open for 1 session a week. Why didn’t Bromley Council stipulate that this Baby Clinics must remain at the Beacon as it is an essential service for young Beckenham families.
