Re: Cobbs Corner Roundabout

My wife just came back from the gym and noticed that both the pedestrian crossings near the roundabout (by LA Fitness and the bridge) were not in use. Is the council going to wait until someone gets hurt to realise that pedestrian crossings are necessary? As usual, vehicular traffic seems to have be...

Re: Transport Links

Roisinhynes5, at the end we have found out a local minicab is the best option. Takes you there from home, and brings you home back from the airport. At the end of the day you pay a bit more for the comfort, but it is worth it if you just want to get there or get home without hassle. [ Post made via ...

Re: Does anyone else struggle with Wells Park Doctors?

I have tried walk-in clinics with success. There is one in New Cross... But I agree the system has to change. It does not work for people, even if it works for the GPs.

Welcome. I have lived in LG since this century began, and I could not be happier. It is quiet, close to overground and train stations, with buses running to central London AND Croydon, and it has a nice Residents' Association. Also, there are plenty of shops, big(ish) and small.

Re: The pub on the kirkdale roundabout

I've been to Foxie's, and it is a nice place, bright and clean and comfortable. Yes, the average age dropped a bit when I went in, but I don't think it is a problem.

The former Woodman is being refurbished and will open soon. The guy working there did not know exactly when, though.

Re: The Restaurant that can't make up it's mind.

It was never Mexican food. What they had was Tex-Mex, which is most of the time food covered with melted cheese... I went there once and could not leave fast enough. One hopes that the Italian food will be better.
