Can anyone recommend a good cleaner?

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good, reliable cleaner? Am looking for someone to come for 2 (maybe 3) hours a week.

I have been looking at agencies but would rather go direct and on a recommendation.

Thanks!

Re: Mamma Dough

I have to say I really enjoyed my pizza (and starter AND pudding :shock: ) at the Sydenham restaurant. I actually prefer them to Franco Manca which I find a bit too doughy. The news about the Blackbird bakery is VERY exciting! I love their cakes/ breads and sausage rolls! Any ideas where/ when they ...

Re: Any news on Mamma Dough?

Great evening at Mamma Dough following a few drinks at the Greyhound. So great to have these places in walking distance! I very much enjoyed (all 3 courses :shock: ). The service was prompt and professional and you would never know they had only just opened! Highly reccomend the Nutella calzone for ...

Re: Any news on Mamma Dough?

Thanks JMLF! Has anyone had it confirmed that they are definitely opening this weekend? Hoping to go if so!
Seems a bit odd that they haven’t advertised it at all on their website/ social media.

Thanks!

Re: New plans for Calabash of Culture site

False alarm! I had another look at the lamp post and it’s an old application dating back to July (so the one which was withdrawn).

Re: New plans for Calabash of Culture site

I spotted a sign on a lamp post this morning saying there was a submission for a change of use for a Dallas Chicken in the old Calabash of Culture site.... I was in a rush for the train so couldn't see if it was the old application but I spotted the date September 2018. Does anyone know if this is t...

Re: Sydenham Market

I would love to see a market in Sydenham! Any kind of food/ drink/ Craft stalls would be very welcome!

Just a thought but it may be worth having a chat with the people at Beckenham Place Park who runt the Foodie evenings (hot food stalls) there?

Re: LEWISHAM COUNCIL PLANNING ENFORCEMENT DESPAIR

I really feel for you. Have you sought any legal advice about taking the Freeholder to a First Tier Tribunal? Might be worth researching. I’m also not sure how relevant it is but what about the housing Ombudsman? Might be worth making a complaint with them if it’s the type of thing they deal with. h...

Re: sticky:RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

I think Nando’s looks great and it’s fantastic to see that so many people have been enjoying it in its first few days. Would be great to see the empty sports shop opposite filled with a bar/ cafe/ restaurant. Does anyone know anything about this site? And any news when Mamma Dough is expecting to op...

Re: New plans for Calabash of Culture site

I just logged my opposition and didn’t receive the response saying the submission had been withdrawn.... it may therefore be worth emailing just in case it hasn’t being withdrawn! I feel strongly against yet more fast food restaurants in general for environmental and health reasons. It may well be t...

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

Re: The Monstrosity

I am so glad to hear this, thank you for sharing. It baffles me how a new buildso unimaginative and architecturally unimpressive can be given approval. There was so much potential!

Re: Lewisham Council and Trees

I got very upset after seeing these signs hung on the few trees on our road. Was very very relieved to come home the following day to see they had been very lightly pruned. Hope the same goes for all the other healthy trees in the area- there aren’t enough!
