Raise a glass to Southey, Penge’s newest brewery

When the news first filtered through in August this year that Late Knights, the brewery and pub company based in the heart of Penge, had been dissolved, it sent a wave of sadness through the local community, and particularly those of us who enjoyed their beer. While their ale was still very popular, the aggressive…

Penge gets ready to jumble – 26/6/16

The Penge Jumble Trail is like a car boot sale but on the streets of SE20 (and a few just over the border).  Locals set up stalls outside their houses to sell bric-a-brac, toys, vintage clothes, cakes or whatever.
