A curtain shop in Penge has been awarded the best-decorated shop in Bromley for the Platinum Jubilee.

Designer Drapes, the winning shop, had an extensive, colourful shop display including a puppet of Prince Charles and Her Majesty the Queen getting stuck into a jubilee cake.

The shop was awarded a certificate with their new title by the Mayor yesterday morning, along with a £100 gift voucher which was donated by the Glades shopping centre.

Designer Drapes was established 35 years ago and make bespoke curtains, blinds and shutters for homes and businesses.

Bromley Council provided grants totalling £30,000 to local business and community groups to decorate the borough’s high streets and shopping parades for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Councillor Hannah Gray, the Mayor of Bromley said: “I am delighted to present this certificate to such a wonderfully decorated shop that has really captured the essence of Bromley’s Jubilee spirit, which I am seeing in full swing across the borough.

“I want to thank all residents who submitted their favourite displays for their lovely photos which has made it a pleasure to judge this competition.

“I am now looking forward to touring Bromley’s Jubilee street parties and to meeting as many joyful residents as possible as they celebrate Her Majesty’s outstanding achievement in style.”

Over 250 nominations for the competition were received for 24 shops across the borough.

Bromley Council would like to give special mentions to shops Aitch & Aitch in Beckenham, Eliza Wade in Hayes, A Crafty Needle in West Wickham, and Sponge Kitchen in Hayes.
