Cool Bromley and social media on the street

Ebony & Ivory Interiors, who recently opened in Locksbottom

We talk about and share uplifting stories from across the UK, to cheer people up. We’re now also focussing on one location in particular, Bromley in Kent, to identify the active social media users ‘on the street’ – schools and other public bodies, charities, shops, businesses, and others. The idea is that if more people in Bromley are aware of who to connect to locally, they’ll connect more and be aware of what is going on, what to do, and what to see. That will benefit the people who have the social media we’re sharing. Here are some examples of active local social media users we’re sharing, or who we soon will:

  • Businesses – Teepol Products, based in Orpington, manufacturers of cleaning products since 1938
  • Charities – Bromley Borough Foodbank
  • Entertainment – Bromley Youth Music Trust presentations
  • Food and drink – the new rather good (we’ve been there a few times) place to eat in Orpington – A.MANO coffee bar and kitchen
  • Places of worship – Bromley Reform Synagogue
  • Schools – Bishop Justus Church of England School
  • Services – Anderson Veterinary, Orpington and other locations
  • Shops – Pet Perfection in Green Street Green and Petts Wood
  • Social media hubs – Bromley Gossip on Facebook

Why Cool Local?

Cool Local is ‘Here to cheer people up’ by sharing uplifting stories of individuals and independent and smaller organisations. We encourage people to be positive, to strive for better things and to help each other. We have cheered up the wonderful rugby and charity fundraising organisation the Welsh Charitables RFC, who are delighted to have been shared by Cool Local, and we’re proud that the Netherton Foundry sold product when we talked about them. Check out our Blog here; our Twitter here; our Facebook here; and our You Tube here.

What is the latest thing that cheers us up? Cockermouth in Cumbria and, to start with, its bookshop. See our new blog post, here.

The Cool Local website is dedicated to the memory of the late author David Nobbs, more on this in our About page.
