Hundreds of local residents turned out to Royston Field on Saturday to enjoy this year’s Penge Festival Fete. The usual good mix of local organisations and entertainment kept the crowds amused. The snakes, spiders and tortoises in the reptile tent were a particularly popular attraction. Congratulations to Wendie Roche and her team who even managed to influence the weather!
The new Mayor of Bromley, Cllr Earnest Noad, spent a couple of hours touring the event and meeting local residents. He also took time to visit the memorial set up alongside Royston Field in memory of Khadar Hussein who was killed there on Wednesday 8th May. He spoke to Khadar’s family who were also present. The Fete held a minute’s silence in Khadar’s memory.
