I love best of lists, and this one, from Main Line Today, is always good.
Selfishly, I'd prefer they stuck to the Main Line, instead of Western suburbs like Coatesville, Downingtown, and Phoenixville, but I still love seeing the list, and always enjoy the big #BOMLT party they throw every July.
Here are some Narberth Borough winners, plus a couple of non-Narberth local faves:
Best of the Main Line & Western Suburbs 2019
Family-Friendly Event (Tie)
Narberth Dickens Festival
West Chester Christmas Parade
Mixed Martial Arts
Technique, stamina and upper-body strength form the foundation of owner Rodney Rappe’s classes. Mixing boxing with other martial arts styles and fitness tools, his full-body workouts are as effective as they are addictive.

The Narberth Avenue Bridge is now a one-way bridge for cars, going South to North. The road is divided so that pedestrians can use the other half of the road, protected by a safety barrier.
The long-term plan is bridge replacement of our 100+ year-old bridge, and the current schedule (if it holds) has that project starting next Spring. PennDot has a ton of bridges in line for replacement, so we hope our project doesn't get pushed back again. I'll report on www.narberthonline.com if I hear anything.
