SLSL Beckenham – Our Main Office until Autumn/Winter 2017

Our Main Office is our home-from-home space at 194 Beckenham Road, BR3 4RJ.  Our Reception is open Mon – Weds 9:30 – 2:00 for hire returns, to collect pre-booked carriers to hire or buy, and to book onto advice classes.  Pre-booking is ESSENTIAL; we can’t help with drop in hires or advice.

Finding us:

The Sling Library is in a house opposite a Tesco Express, almost on the corner with Kent House Road.  The Sling Library entrance is via the right hand gate and down the right hand side of the house.

There is plenty of space to park buggies inside the entrance as you come in, or outside on the decking beyond the door. Please ensure that buggies are parked considerately and do not block any doors or exits.
