Re: Bell Green Retail & Employment Plan Consultation

What would be nice is if there was an actual Bell Green, a green area near the cafe/restaurant that would could be used for different community activities, with the facilities of the cafe nearby. Markets etc? It would also border the new Livesey Hall garden, so potential of sharing the space. Perhap...

Re: Bell Green Retail & Employment Plan Consultation

Were they really built in the 1880s? Yeah would be nice if at least one could be saved and sympathetically built around.

I know, perhaps we could turn one into a pub! Or an estate agents perhaps.

Found this... sheds a bit of light on what's happening.

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

But I could imagine a warmer looking welcome to the place we live in. Hey, people want to sell/buy here, so it's just a visual manifestation of what's going on. I'll stop.

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

No it's true, just a sign of the times that the 'gateway to Sydenham' will be marred by two big shiny estate agents intent on pushing house prices to even more astronomical heights. Not just their fault, accepted.

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

Perhaps a crack team of the slimiest estate agents in Sydenham could set up a new estate agents in the greyhound and try to sell it from within!

My apologies once again.

Maybe a massive estate agents! Sure that would finally kill any glimmers of soul that that area once possessed.

Sorry. It's just all a bit depressing. Maybe the Estate agents could try selling each other?

Re: Sydenham Market - Venner Road

I heard this while at the station with my boys looking at trains, it was echoing down from Venner square and sounded great. Then dragged kids up to the market and saw a bit of the performance, impressive! Good energy. Thought it was weird that they were sitting down in the middle of the square, it f...

'Ten Tonne Ska, and a DJ called Dan'. I'll get some big signs engraved and screw them to the wall at the pub then. Nice and economical.

Reggae at the Golden Lion

Hello all. I play bass in a Reggae/Ska/Dub band called Ten Tonne Ska. https://www.facebook.com/TenTonneSka We've been playing together for about 3 years now, but only had 2 gigs in Sydenham until we played at the Golden Lion on my 40th a few weeks ago. Tony has asked if we'd like to play regularly t...

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

Does anyone know what happened to the proposed conservatory? I noticed there is still a big boarded up opening on that side but as it's on the market now does that mean all the building work has been completed?

Re: Golden Lion pub

Yeah I think one if the reasons I developed a taste for ale is that it was generally cheaper! Not so much these days. Over 4 quid a pint just feels a bit steep when you can get a bottle to drink at home for under half the price. Spose the pubs being less busy means prices have to go up to keep them ...
