The Glades Shopping Centre, on Bromley Hight Street, has announced details of its new community-focused initiative.

Plan G will see local businesses and organisations offering a variety of activities which will allow the public to learn new skills, take up hobbies and explore worthwhile experiences.

From April onwards, visitors can expect an additional calendar of events such as classes, workshops and exhibitions to be held during the evenings at the shopping centre.

Kate Miller, general manager of The Glades, said: “Bromley is an amazing town filled with many entrepreneurs, creatives and forward-thinkers offering amazing resources, clubs and services.

“There is a wealth of knowledge and expertise right on our doorstep that members of the public might not realise is available.

“We’re aiming to cater for a wide range of interests, and anything goes.

“From pottery and music lessons to gardening, we’re on the lookout for people who organise community activities and asking them to please get in touch.”

Plan G was born from the idea that as a hub of the community, The Glades was in a position where it could offer free, temporary space to individuals and businesses, enabling them to reach wider audiences.

The first Plan G activity, taking place on Tuesday April 17, from 7pm - 9pm, will be a four-week antenatal course delivered by reflexologist, Jane Altree, along with a dedicated team including a midwife, paramedic, hypnobirthing teacher and nanny.

The Altree Antenatal Course will cover everything parents-to-be need to know as they get ready for labour and beyond.

Ms Altree said: “The Glades is a fantastic place to host the course as it’s an accessible location for a lot of people.

“Those who join us for the sessions have the opportunity to ask all the questions they may have in a relaxed and informal environment.

“It’s also a great chance to meet other families, share experiences and form new friendships, which is a great benefit to have when navigating through parenthood.”

To sign up to the course, which is priced at £225 per couple, please contact Jane at or call 07762 742668.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
