Our new Play Park in the Village was launched on Tuesday 12 September with the cutting of a ribbon. Local residents and children from the School attended the event. It was also lovely to have the support of our local Councillor Jonathan Andrews and dignitaries from Bromley Council.
Well done to everyone involved in putting the jubilee application together and a big thank you to idverde’s Park Development Team for delivering the project.
Thank you to David Clothier for painting our Village sign.
What a fabulous job!

Pratts Bottom is a small village in The London Borough of Bromley with a thriving community. The village has a Primary School, Chapel, Pub and many Societies and Clubs that meet in the Village Hall.
Located on the border with Kent, Pratts Bottom is surrounded by beautiful countryside and yet is within easy reach of Junction 4 of M25 and just 18 miles from Central London. Walks in the area are popular with ramblers, families and youth groups.
The village is named after the Pratt family from the 14th century. Until the 1830s the village was on the toll road from London to Hastings and was the haunt of smugglers and highwaymen. Dick Turpin used to drink in the village pub.
