Improvements to Beckenham town centre began on Saturday with the unveiling of new town signs.

Local businesses celebrated the event with a series of giveaways and entertainment at the two sites in Thornton’s Corner and the Regal Roundabout, opposite Odeon Cinema, in Beckenham High Street.

The new signs are to be followed by new finger post signs, notice boards, street furniture and litter bins. A bid has also been submitted to Transport for London to fund carriageway and footway improvements in the high street.

Cllr Peter Morgan, executive for renewal and recreation, said: “The unveiling of signs welcoming visitors at key junctures in the town centre heralds the start of more improvements to Beckenham.

“We’d like to thank traders in the High Street for their involvement on the day with giveaways and support.”
