We have successfully applied for, and been granted, bids to make improvements to Newlands Park Parade and Kent House Parades in Penge.
The improvements for each parade are different but will include new parade signs, hanging baskets or planters, new litter bins, pressure washing and chewing gum removal.
Both parades will benefit from the improvements and we take this opportunity of thanking the Traders from these parades and the Penge Traders for working with us on these successful bids.
We hope local Street Friends and Trader will help to keep these parades looking inviting and reporting issues which need to be addressed.
