Although we are very fond of Crystal Palace, its Cllrs and residents, Penge is not part of Crystal Palace. We are a unique town and we need to retain our individuality and our name – Penge.
If you share this view please take every opportunity to address this as we have below with Timeout Magazine and their voting for local public houses and restaurants:
As Ward Councillors of Penge our residents are unhappy that they cannot vote for the excellent restaurants and public houses in Penge, as your system appears to think that Penge is in Crystal Palace whereas they are very different towns.
This issue came up at a local meeting last night and we agreed to contact timeout and try to get this put right.
Meanwhile many of us have declined to vote for our restaurants and public houses and give credit to the wrong town.
