  1. Truly shocking that Bromley Council having neglected the Bowie Bandstand in Croydon Road Recreation Ground expect the community to pick up the whole repair bill. Attitudes need to change in the Town Hall and embrace the Bowie legacy . Our parks can reflect Beckenham’s rich cultural heritage as part of Kent and having many famous local names with themed events, plays and fairs. Plays used to be held in Kelsey Park before the Second World War so why not now? encourage the Arts!

  2. Kelsey Park Beckenham is located on the line of the Lewes to London Roman Road dating from c.80ad.
    Bromley Council should have an interpretation panel noting this and the Roman landscape which included a township the road connected to at West Wickham and that this was a busy highway bringing up tools and weapons from the foundries of Sussex. We should celebrate our history!
