Re: Milverton House, Perry Hill

Hi Glenn - If you're a Facebook user, there's a great group on there for this sort of thing... It's called "Catford and Lewisham - way back when..." and here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/435277893269381

I'm pretty sure if you post in there you'll find some people who remember you!

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

You know what JGD, Chris Beach makes out that it's just a tiny handful of people who are vocal about this, like you and me, that have problems with him and his modus operandi. And that we're the "trolls", he's a victim. Does he really believe that? Because I'll tell you what, I've had messages from ...

Thanks for bringing this to my attention JGD.

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

Astonishing threads. Absolutely nothing - Nothing - has changed in 4 years. What a thoroughly decent job they're all doing of embarrassing and incriminating themselves. I could do a line by line, but I really can't be bothered. And I think that most people who've read any of the threads will see it ...

SydSoc ? Are you sure ?
I *think* but I'm not sure. Quite possible that it could just be Network Rail. He's not involved as I understand it, but @JMLF may have more info?

Network Rail is paying for it and I *think* SydSoc is behind it. I've been told that the design was supposed to be shared online somewhere for feedback, but I'm not sure where that is. Just had a quick look on SydSoc Facebook page and website but couldn't see anything there. The mural will be on the...
