Members of the Penge Forum Committee were out meeting members of the public earlier in March. 46 people were asked in Empire Square what they most loved about Penge. 15 people also responded on Facebook. Many people gave more than one answer. There were a range of ages and backgrounds.
What do people most love about Penge – here’s an pictoral representation of the answers:
Some good quotes were:
“I’ve lived here forever and I’ll never move!”
“Penge is one of London’s hidden treasures”
“Penge is really quirky and an exciting place to live – I love it!”
“It’s really easy to get volunteers”
“Everyone knows each other”
“Loveliest, friendliest café owners”
Many people were visiting Penge and said that was because it has shops that Catford, Crystal Palace and Beckenham don’t have, such as MacDonald’s, Shoe Zone, and Wilkinsons. We hope to find out more about this next time we are on the streets of Penge!
