Re: Croydon Canal route: Brockley to New Cross

Hi, I’m new to this forum but have enjoyed reading all the posts over the years about the Croydon Canal. I manage a nature reserve around where lock 20 may have been (Eddystone Bridge Crofton Park) and today we think we unearthed part of the structure where a bridge may have been. Also an extensive...

Re: Does #TalkTalk care?

Yes Rachael you are right. Virgin might be bad but they are not in the same class as TalkTalk. TalkTalk are special. Frankly Tim - you have a choice - end the contract now or stay with the most justifiably derided ISP in the business. Leopards are not going to change their spots anytime soon. Why o...

Re: Sydenham Book Group - February

Obviously, the book group won't be able to meet for some time - certainly not in late March. I'll post on here when we know a meeting will again be possible. Stay safe! Mike Happy to host with Zoom.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It will be interesting to see whether Chris's decision means that there will now be more traffic on this forum. Or has the iron now entered too deep into everybody's soul for there to be any reconciliation between the Chrisites and the Stuartites? Don't know, but the mush of moral equivalence is qu...

Lewisham Community Response to Coronavirus

Pleased - and a bit apprehensive - to say I've just heard back from www.lewishamlocal.com Thanks to having offered to help with an after school club, I had a valid DBS as well as a driving licence I was able to send back scans of this morning. As they say: We are very busy with setting up a system a...

Re: Bell Green Proposals

I went along, and while the vision for a mix of housing and retail, at decent densities - for which read high enough to help solve housing shortage, but not overbearing - was good, it felt to me, in the words of Tredownman, something of a displacement activity. I think the project was too architect ...

Re: Allotments Open Day - Honey for sale

No - it's just the time of the year for flower and vegetable shows.

There's also a peak in allotment Open Days in May, which tend to be bigger, because that's the time for selling spare plants just grown from seed

Re: Cox's Walk footbridge

Why should anyone think Southwark Council is not mitigating the loss of two trees most effectively by planting a whole lot more? Is it possible to compare the professional expertise of the Council officers concerned and the petitioners. Have we, or have we not, had enough of experts? If we wanted to...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

On a positive note, I hear the dot life forums are pretty much CB free these days. Hopefully if nothing else, it will allow people to express themselves a little more openly, and have more discussion and conversation about things. It's not all bad eh.

Re: Licensing Lewisham's landlords - have your say

Seems to me you're either a free market fundamentalist, who thinks there's no role for the state, here in regulating the private rental sector, or else that there is, in which case you need to come up with how you think it should be done best. So, mosy, John H, ghlpc, let's be hearing your positive ...

Licensing Lewisham's landlords - have your say

From my friends at Generation Rent Lewisham Council has new plans to tackle negligent landlords and protect tenants from mistreatment. The council wants to hear from local residents - especially tenants - about these plans, which would mean all landlords in the borough would need a licence to provid...
