Ambassadors

Your Bromley is currently in the process of recruiting the Ambassador team. The team will bring a new, outstanding welcome experience to Bromley, providing a positive and lasting impression to the towns’ users. The team will be recognisable in their original uniform including bowler hats and will work throughout the entire Bromley Business Improvement District.

The team will perform an array of duties such as welcoming visitors and commuters, should you found yourself be lost they will point you in the right direction, they will also be on hand to answer any questions about retailers eg opening times, locations any special offers, gathering data on who might be using Bromley etc. They will also be the eyes and ears on the streets, reporting any cleansing and behavioural issues to the relevant bodies. They will be the first point of call to visitors to Bromley.

The Your Bromley Big Eat

In September starting on Thursday 17th Your Bromley will be organising its first food festival. During the Big Eat, amongst other things, there will be a food trail where participating bars, pubs, restaurants and café’s will offer 3 different dishes for £5 or less each. The idea is to attract people to the town centre and encourage shoppers / workers / town visitors to try something new and go somewhere where you haven’t been before and always fancied trying.

The Big Eat will finish on Sunday, 18th September with a food fair where we will have art and music. More to follow. If you would like more information or would like to participate, please contact Thomas at thomas@yourbromley.com.

Networking Event

On Wednesday, 20th July there will be a networking event at Raft Furniture hosted by Your Bromley from 18:30 – 19:30hrs. There will be drinks and nibbles and this is a great opportunity to meet fellow business people who trade in the town centre as well the Your Bromley team. If you would like to join in the event, please contact Thomas at thomas@yourbromley.com.

We Are Bromley Week

Citygate Food+ is a charitable initiative which helps the most vulnerable in Bromley, providing fresh food to those in food poverty and practical assistance to those most in need. Citygate Food+ works closely with charitable organisations across the Borough.

It is a week of community events from Monday 22 to Sunday 28 August 2016 designed to:

  • Celebrate local organisations, charities and community groups already building community across Bromley
  • Encourage individuals and businesses across Bromley to identify as part of the local community of Bromley, and play a part in growing and supporting local community
  • Meet material needs by undertaking a significant ‘compassion’ project, such as the regeneration of a local community space for Bromley Council or a local charity (encouraging others to engage with the project and undertake their own projects during the week)
