Naming of Thornton’s Corner, and Beckenham’s New Town Signs –
All are welcome to join dignitaries, guests and residents when the crossroad at Manor Road & High Street is officially given the name Thornton’s Corner after Beckenham campaigner Tom Thornton – Saturday 6 July, 10am corner of High Street and Manor Rd, next to The Beckenham.
After a short ceremony in front of the newly installed Beckenham Town Sign the Town Crier will lead the walk to the War Memorial for the installing of the second new Town Sign… and to mark Thornton’s publication of the Beckenham Journal, our High Street fish & chip shop, The Big Catch, will be handing out free ‘newspaper’ cones of chips between 10.30am -11am and 2pm and 2.30 while stocks last.
The new Town Signs are the first of the planned improvements for the High Street with more to come over the summer months.
