My Penge

Spring is here and though there may be more snow the evenings are getting longer and there are many reasons for hope in 2012, for sure there are challenges in the economy and even society but it is important to believe in and be part of a great community. Yes support the people and businesses in Penge.

We are offering now a great rate for advertising, 12 months for the price of 6, so that is just £50 instead of the standard £100. We will work with you to develop an great page also create an on line shopping facility that you can use to sale your products and services from.

We are keen to hear about what is planned and happening in Penge and the surrounding areas of Beckenham, Sydenham, Crystal Palace, Norwood and Anerley for 2012, the year of the Queens Jubilee in June (literally yes 50 years!) outstanding, and then there is the London Olympics and Paralympics July and August. This is going to be an awesome year and there is going to much happening we hope to see Penge up there and part of all.

We are pleased that Penge can now boost a really good traditional Fish & Chip Shop, Hasibo, right there on the High Street 8 Central Parade SE20 7TN (opposite Lidl Store) Tel 020 8676 0764 for pre-ordering (not deliveries). Not just good tasting but they have made a real effort to keep prices low and serve the local community with special priced meals. Just up from 'The Pawleyne Arms' towards Sainsburies but just a few shops up. Check it out.

What a loss to hear the news that Whitney Houston has died, her music and films were always so good, what a shame.

Do you have news about what is happening in Penge and the surrounding areas. We would love to hear and add a page or section about that. So please get in touch.

Is Penge a good place to live?

We hope you will find this a fun and interesting website - we want it to be a window on Penge (not a rear view mirror), showing the good things about Penge and maybe some of the not so good things. At the moment we show it just the way it is - check out the shop page where we have listed by photographs some of the shops in the Penge area (this is just a few of the over 200 we found).

From things of interest like the history of Penge - Did you know that Crystal Palace Hill was actually called Penge Hill. It has been in the record books since pre-Norman times, and in addition to 2 main line railways and had a canal go through it. 

Things of interest on this site are a Penge Chat Room to a place where you can sell your goods, or even your car, house or flat on line - in fact sell anything!. We hope you will discover something about Penge you never realised before, a new shop, something to look out for, a fun activity like a Penge pub crawl (though most here know about that!).

There are real entrepreneurs living and working in Penge and this is impressive - there is so much more about this area than what meets the eye. We have found Penge to have some impressive attributes particularly with the businesslike attitude of some people and what they aspire to achieve. We want to join this and create a website that people from all over the 'world' may  learn that Penge is a place of diversity and interest and more than just another South London High Street.

We are going to let you decide for yourself, and show you plenty of pictures and provide loads of comments about Penge. Activities through the year lke the 'Penge Festival' and other activities there are a lot of people that cre about there local community, and seek to inprove where they can.

I remember the Two Ronnies joking about Penge on their TV show, as have others. There have been celebrities living in Penge and the surrounding areas.

This is My Penge.
