1000+ Members and #BeckBromFL TweetUp Live

Hi everyone!


I just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone for being part of the website and posting so much great content, we finally sailed past the 1000th signed up member of the website last week, plus the Twitter following rocketed past 3000 too.

These are really great mile stones to pass and if anything the figures are increasing quicker as you all share the website, Twitter and Facebook pages with friends, colleagues…

To All "Monument" Owners in Beckenham

This blog is addressed to all of those in Beckenham who own a "Monument".

A "Monument" is a vehicle that sits in the road and hardly ever moves. It is clearly not used very much and may even be excess to requirements, it is literally a "Monument".  The problem is that a lot of these "Monuments" are not sitting outside their owners properties, they are sitting outside someone else's property.  These "Monuments" can sit in the road for weeks or even months at a time without…

Borrowing books for your iphone from the library

I've been using this service from Beckenham library for a while and thought I'd let you know what I found.


I, like a lot of beckenham-ites, am a commuter and rely on books to maintain my sanity.


However getting to the local library isn't alway convenient, however I do have an iphone, so I thought I'd try out their ebook service.


The good news is it's easy to use and doesn't require a trip to the library at all.


All I had to do,…

KIZOMBA..Not Zumba! The Partner Dance from Angola sometimes called African Tango ..spreading like wildfire!!

This beautiful dance was first seen in the late 80's. Derived from Semba, the predecessor of Samba and Zouk music from the French Caribbean. Some of the moves are so subtle it is as though two bodies are moving as one. The music is kind on the ears and dancing couples mesmorising to watch.

THE MEN learn to be lead their partner and glide around the dancefloor.. THE LADIES learn to follow dance with their eyes closed and feel the interpretation of the music…

On Youths and Dogs

I'm still rather shaken up although on reflection I probably wasn't in any real danger. Walking my lovely flat coated retriever, Oscar, in Beckenham Place Park as usual, I cam across three youths with stereotypical "Staffie-cross" looking dogs. One was just a tiny puppy, but the other two were young and fit. The white dog was on a chain lead and the younger tan dog ran about enjoying itself freely as any dog on its walk.

An alarm bell rang in my head that something wasn't quite right - we… Continue
