Spot the town centre

For a long time, BC has been arguing that the vast array of vans that plague Coulgate Street and the surrounding area are a big problem, not just for local pedestrians and shoppers, but for the local businesses that have helped to make Coulgate Street such an important part of our town centre.

We're glad to see this wasn't our imagination. Reader Monkeyboy sent us these photos of yet another huge van plonked outside Browns of Brockley and the cafe's perfect response.

That vans occupy this spot on almost a daily basis is yet another argument for the part-pedestrianisation of Coulgate Street, which local people have been campaigning for and which the Council is said to be considering.
