Re: Masks

14Monty - What I was actually trying to point out is that people within the BAME community are more likely to contract this nasty, vile virus and I was surprised that they were not wearing masks to protect themselves and their loved ones. Nothing racist about my comment whatsoever. :roll:

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

RJM - that is great news. Even though I am a Silverdale resident (with absolutely no ties to the Thorpes or whatever councillor it is) currently enjoying the benefits the bollards are having (when they are left alone), I will definitely be supporting this aspect too for Mayow Road. After all, we are...

APCB - I am not an eco warrior - but do try to do my best. Note to self - must try harder.

What I can say is that I have managed 53 years WITHOUT a car though!

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

Glad to see the improvement already from my point of view. Only been this morning and I can see there are much less dust/pollution particles on my cooker - god knows what I have been breathing in all this time :shock: Sydenham Road and Mayow Road are MAIN roads and, yes, they do also need traffic ca...

Received an email earlier from the Consultation people to say they are aware of this and permanent structures will be put in place next week to stop this.

Re: SCAMS

I've received numerous calls from an officer ??? (can never catch the name) saying that I owe HMRC money and that if I don't contact them by pressing/contacting them a warrant will be issued for my arrest. Needless to say I am still waiting...I never click on anything...if in doubt find an official ...

Re: Masks

Today, I had to make a journey which involves 4 buses (2 there/2 back). I duly purchased face masks for this having been told like the rest of us that this is now mandatory. I am extremely surprised and upset that the vast majority of who would be classed within "BAME" were NOT wearing face masks. I...

Re: Notice of Silverdale traffic restriction from 29 Jul

You can look at streetbuilder/eastsydenham or sydenhameast (cannot remember which way round it is) - they are looking at ways to reduce traffic and/or traffic calming measures in this area - you can add comments too. Think there is a meeting in September. It is quite interesting. Well worth doing - ...

Re: Notice of Silverdale traffic restriction from 29 Jul

I agree. It is lovely and quite. Can watch the tv at a "normal" level. Hardly any thumping music = bliss. Thames Water please do take your time :D

Re: Credit where credit's due to Thames Water...

It was deemed an emergency. Thames Water started work on it yesterday morning. Left at about 3.30/4.00 p.m. and returned at 1.00 a.m. to fix the leak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most rudely awoken from a nice sleep! Not impressed.

Central Heating Recommendation

Highly recommend Progas if you need a recommendation. Turned up when they said they would. Very prompt. Very tidy. And charged what they said they would. Have absolutely no hesitation in recommending.

Re: Mayow Road vet

Hi sorry for late response. Don't have much time these days... I have used Mayow Vets for about 12 years or so now. In my opinion they are great. Tony Rogers explains everything so well. Amy too (not sure whether she is back yet) and, so have any of the others that I have seen. Reception staff are g...

Sydenham Station Platform CoffeeMan

It seems we have a new CoffeeMan - he is (well, was this morning) extremely quiet though...he looked a bit daunted this morning. How can we welcome him with 'open arms' so to speak ? Obviously he is not going to be like 'Rockfuel Man', but how can we make him feel at home and much wecolmed?, being ...
