The civic society hope to encourage locals to ‘care’ about where they live

Bromley Civic Society are celebrating Civic Day with a display in The Glades shopping centre and four guided heritage walks.

The society are celebrating the national initiative, which this year’s theme is ‘I care about where I live’, and aim to share their knowledge of local heritage in a bid to get people to care about where they live.

Tony Banfield, chair of Bromley Civic Society, said: “We think it’s important that people who live, work, and shop in the town know about the wonderful heritage that’s here. Come on the walks and then join up so that you can get involved in protecting it for the future.”

This year, 2017 is the 50th anniversary of conservation areas legislation and so attention will focus on the Bromley town centre conservation area.

The guided walks will be free and each one will last about 90 minutes.

The first walk will start at 10am and will visit the Bromley Palace and adjoining Park. It will be an opportunity to see inside the 18th century home of the Bishops of Rochester, now the nerve centre of Bromley Council.
