Beckenham in the running for High Street of the Year Award

Beckenham is set to go up against the country’s best in the Great British High Street Awards after it was nominated for the national award by the Beckenham Business Association (BBA).

The Government-backed competition to find and celebrate the nation’s best high streets is run by the Future High Street Forum and the Association of Town and City Management. Jackie Groundsell, Chair of the Beckenham Business Association said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be in the running for the Great British High Street of the Year Awards. Our application focuses on how we’ve been collaborating with other local groups to improve life and business in Beckenham through better community cohesion.”

The news was welcomed by local businesses, residents and other town centres on Twitter this week, including Chislehurst, who wished Beckenham well.

The winners of the awards, who will be announced in the autumn, will receive a share of £50,000 of prize money and dedicated support and mentoring from industry experts.

People can show their support for Beckenham online by tweeting their photos and endorsements to @TheGBHighSt, using the hashtag #gbhighst.
