This weekend residents are invited to visit Orpington town centre and support local businesses in getting back to business.
Customers will find a clean and welcoming environment, and business owners have put in place all the government guidance to ensure your safety and comfort.
Customer toilets, baby changing and facilities for those customers who need extra support are all open in the Walnuts Shopping Centre where you will also find public, hands-free sanitising machines.
Pavements have been deep cleaned and are gum free, our seasonal flower displays have been installed and we even have a new bunting tree erected at the Memorial Roundabout (matching the red, white and blue theme of our planters) to celebrate a return to business.
The much anticipated reopening of cafes, restaurants and hairdressers, coincides with Independents Day, an ideal opportunity to show support for our own independent businesses, and as well as reopenings, we are delighted to welcome new openings, including Orpington GPO.
We expect that the government will soon announce dates for the reopening of the remaining health and beauty businesses, joining the many which have newly re-opened and those who have continued working throughout lockdown.
On behalf of all Orpington businesses, thank you for your continued support, and welcome back to your town centre.
Please make sure you stay safe and follow the latest government guidance.
