Community

Chislehurst is a great place to live and one of the reasons this town is special is a great sense of community. There are key organisations, businesses and individuals that make this place tick and we’d be lost without them! They are:

Chislehurst Business Group – a not for profit organisation; working to create a thriving and vibrant Chislehurst and the driving force behind Visit Chislehurst.

Chislehurst Town Team – the Town Team is made up of volunteers – traders, businesses, landlords, local charities, interest groups, and residents. They have had many successes, not least the new Chislehurst branding, reduced parking costs and securing grants from London Borough of Bromley.  In fact, they are so good that Alison Stammers (the Chair) won the Mary Portas' High Street Champion of the Year.

The Chislehurst Society – aim to ensure that Chislehurst is kept special for residents and visitors alike. They help in the areas of planning, traffic, education, conservation, Heritage and police liaison.  They also have helped to sponsor many events, charitable organisations and more.

The Trustees of the Commons – strive to manage and maintain the Chislehurst and St Paul's Cray Commons as an amenity for the enjoyment of local people and visitors. Without their amazing group of volunteers; Prickend Pond would not look as picturesque as it does now!

Friends of Chislehurst & Walden Recreation Ground (FOCRG) – exist to protect and improve the Rec for all to enjoy! Plus they organise the Chislehurst Rocks Festival every year!

And let’s not forget the Friends of Belmont Open Space, Chislehurst Rotary, Churches Together in Chislehurst & Bickley, Friends of Scadbury and more…

Any one of these groups would welcome your support. Please do get in touch if you think you could help!
