Unfortunately the Mayor of Thunder Bay (Canada) is now unable to come over to sign the Agreement on the 11 November. It will be postponed but hopefully no later than March 2019, when the Mayor of Bromley, Cllr Kim Botting, will also sign at Bromley Civic Centre. Thunder Bay has a number of sister city arrangements with countries around the world. The Friendship Agreement will formalise the relationship between the London Borough of Bromley and the City of Thunder Bay, which is based on over 100 years of shared history and remembrance. It will be a citizen driven relationship with a focus on educational and cultural links and exchanges.
The Remembrance events in Orpington, on Sunday 11 November, will comprise:
10:40am Muster at Orpington War Memorial
10:50am Act of Remembrance begins
11.20am Depart from the War Memorial
11.40am Church service at All Saints' Parish Church, Bark Hart Road

A planning application has been submitted to demolish The Chelsfield and build a mixed residential and commercial development with 10 apartments on 3 floors and a pub and retail on the ground floor. Whilst the idea of a redevelopment might be acceptable, local residents may well have concerns about the proposed plans below. The internal target date is 12 December and determination deadline is 16 January, so objections should be submitted by the first date, to be on the safe side.
Some material planning considerations on which objections might be made are:
