Re: Refurb at the station / bye bye turdis

are they planning to also refurbish the bridge connecting the 2 platform? is all rusting and I wonder if this is also part of the plan.
I am slightly jealous of forest hill station as very pretty plus has a lift which is very handy when you have 2 twins of 12 months.

Re: Newlands Park

It would surely make more sense to have Byne and Wiverton as one-way only in opposite directions for the duration, wouldn't it? I know it's bad enough living in those roads at the best of times, traffic-wise. Is anyone on Twitter, and could get something done about this? Contractors seem to react b...

Re: Poundstretcher in old co-op site

I am very disappointed too but have been hoping there was no truth in the rumours. Has it been confirmed that it’s Poundstretcher? Thanks gosh I just read this and it's very disappointed indeed. feels like Sydenham is not in for a change. We don't need more crappy shop where virtually nothing usefu...

Re: Some sort of bar/beer shop

I am so pleased to see new shop opening and shop that are not pound shop or convenient stores. Competition is good and I think this one will do well and Bobs will be fine. Competition keeps owner on their toe all the time. I have also tried Clapton Craft in Forest Hill and it has very good selection...

Re: Sydenham too tatty for Caffe Nero

what are your changes if that does not involved chains? I have expressed mine and lots of them they don't involve chains at all So are you saying that our high street is fine as it is and can stay like this for the next 10 years? Not at all - of course I want change, but the right change. I just don...

Re: Sydenham too tatty for Caffe Nero

Thanks for your reply Rod, it's clear that we both have Sydenhma at heart otherwise we won't take our time to reply on this Forum. Let's forget about Nero however the major points that we have too many empty shops and too many shops that are the same is a reality. I can understand your resistance in...

Re: Aldi

Aldi and Lidl, are cheap and not what the high street needs. Why strive for bottom of the barrel, when we can aim for much higher. I agree with you, the area need to aim for higher. I personally love lidl many good quality items but I think we have enough variety of food places on the high street. ...

Re: Sydenham too tatty for Caffe Nero

I am some what disappointed that the high street of Sydenham has not managed to get better ( been here since 2009). A few good changes but nothing drastic and everything seems so slow while neighbours are booming. It feels that people here don't want the change but happy to carry on in the mediocre...

Re: 2017 Decent Christmas Decorations in High Street?

Can the local representatives of the council please ensure that Sydenham has decent lamppost/street decorations in the High Street this year? And a half decent, bushy, Christmas tree with proper colourful Christmas lights? Is it too much to ask if we can possibly have a better looking town centre t...

Thank you for your comment below, I totally agree with you and I do firmly believe that because of people like the one commenting the changes will never happen.
