    Discovered a great little cafe in Orpington today (St Mary Cray actually). It's called the Croft Tea Room and is a proper community place selling locally sourced food. It does fry-ups, lunches, sunday roasts, cream teas and more with plenty of veggie options and has a little shop attached too. The food and the service were both top notch.

    I had no idea this was happening.... (i've been posting loads of Daily Mail articles recently... what is happening to me :p)

    Bromley neighbors despair over 40ft high rubbish mountain | Daily Mail Online
    'Despairing neighbours have pleaded for action to be taken to end their four-year nightmare of having to live next to a stinking 40ft high, 20,000-ton mountain of rubbish which keeps bursting into flames.

    The rat-infested mix of rotting industrial and domestic waste is said to spontaneously combust on a weekly basis ‘like a smoking volcano’ and has been branded a health hazard by fed up families.

    In March, Bromley Council signed an agreement with the Environment Agency (EA) to clear the abandoned tip at the end of a cul-de-sac in St Paul’s Cray, Bromley, south-east London, but as yet no action has been taken'

    It is now being cleared
    Homes dwarfed by stinking 18,000 tonne waste mountain

    Did they even think that whenever it rained the run-of from the heap would be adding toxic waste to our water supply?

    No way!! I thought the rebrand had gone really well for them, although Bromley also became so busy that I actually stopped going there..lol

    me and most people i know never stopped calling it the Glades - maybe that's why they've decided to go back.

    Developments in Beckenham Place Park.

    The squirrel is getting repainted...one of these designs (poll to pick which now closed)

    I'll miss the old one

    But even better than that the mansion house has been taken over by Bussey Building crew. There have been 4 soul nights put on there but I've missed all of them. I also saw a planning permission type thing go up about allowing alcohol to be sold in park grounds, so i think something is afoot for the future for the mansion as a venue. Really hope so

    You can now walk inside the mansion pretty much anytime...its open to the public till late. Lovely building

    Anyone know anything about the accident at Bromley North? I heard it was serious.

    was just up there earlier. All i can say is the traffic was backed up hard, with people going two ways down a one way street at one point.... And failing to move in either direction.

    btw nice to see some new life on Bromley north high street (where the cinema is). Last time i was there most of the shops seemed boarded up

    Interesting news here
    Major changes set for Beckenham Place Park
    Highlight for me is:
    Part of the site is also planned to be evacuated to install a lake and wetland area.
    .....
    In its ‘master plan’ it stated the desire to use the proposed lake to provide swimming and other leisure uses. :thumbs:

    Hayes is handy for me.

    It's opening on Saturday, which is good timing as the New Inn is currently closed.

    The Odeon (which became a Cineworld is now closed) Not sure if it's temporary or permanent.

    There's gonna be a cinema at that new development off Westmoreland Road when it opens.

    Saw this on FB...Absolutely terrible idea. The Churchill Gardens is/was Bromleys own little Central Park.

    Wouldn't go that far, but the park should be blacklisted from any potentially residential/commercial developments.

    Wow I remember when they built the churchhill gardens and the open land that was there before! Can't imagine it being a housing estate
