Penge Traders Association
Given its growing status as an affordable and desirable suburb, with excellent transport links to central London and the rest of the South East, Penge is a great place to start and run a business. However, owning or running a business in today’s economic climate can be very tough which is why it is important to link up with other businesses to find ways to cooperate and grow together. Just such opportunities are provided by Penge Traders Association – which has existed to serve and connect local businesses for over 10 years. The Penge Traders Association holds regular traders meetings and supports initiatives such as Penge Christmas lights and special town centre events. The PTA is also an active member of the Penge Town Centre Team – and through this Team represents the views of businesses to the wider community and to Bromley Council.
