Southeastern has celebrated a milestone with local MPs as four of its stations turn 150.

Stations along the Sidcup line including Bexley, Crayford and Mottingham were all officially opened in 1866.

To celebrate, James Brokenshire and David Evennett visited their constituency’s respective stations for a special event.

James Brokenshire said: “Bexley station has been an important part of the development of the local area.

“With 150 years of service to Bexley Village, it is right to mark this piece of local history.

“At the same time as looking back, we also need to look forward to see that passengers passing through Bexley station receive improvements to their journeys.”

Southeastern also plan to mark the 150th Anniversary of Sidcup station later this year

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
