They are being re-surfaced and according to Alona Sheridan on Facebook (Friends of Mayow Park) they should be finished in March.

Re: Lewisham West CLP

I think, but don't quote me on this, that they are at 43 Sunderland Road - it's the end nearest the South Circ.

Re: Refuse Collection

That's interesting Robbie as they've always taken it in the bins before - or maybe it was lower down in the bin and they didn't notice it :D

But just looked at taking it to Landemann Way and it's 2 buses from Sydenham, and there doesn't seem to be a bus stop near the tip!

Re: Lidl shut

You may also like to know that the Co-op is already reducing stocks due to the change to Budgen, which I was told was happening on 5th or 9th July (forget the actual date!). So a bit of a shortage in supermarket type shopping in the high street at the moment.

Re: Refuse Collection

Since they have introduced the new garden waste scheme at £45 per year, they have refused to take garden waste in the dustbins - in fact, they actually removed it from my dustbin the other week. As I don't have a car to be able to take waste to the tip, it seems the only alternative is to pay the £4...

Re: LOST Black & White cat - 1 January 2016

Hi Rich and Naomi

I happened to see your posters this morning and was sorry to hear about Harvey. I'll keep an eye out in my area and try and call him from the garden when I get home, as that was where he was found last time - let's hope he turns up!

Re: Lower Sydenham station - safe to walk at night?

Hi there I use Lower Sydenham in the dark, but I only walk along the road, not the footpath. Personally I think it depends on what time you will be using it. If you get off a commuter train (and I count those as any arrival up to 8pm, others may feel differently) then you will find you have company ...

I've emailed you both as I have seen a long haired black and white cat in the last couple of days in the vicinity of Niederwald Road - but hope he is home already!

Re: Stabbing on a train

The police described this incident as a "cut" which may perhaps explain why someone who does not have English as a first language described it as a "little" stabbing!

Maybe a little understanding might be in order.

Latest on Facebook from Billings:
On the 6th of April we will be introducing a deli range at Billings. Quality cheese, delicious olives and a large charcuterie selection. We cannot wait, very exciting!

Re: Sydenham welcomes Tattoo Shop

Welcome indeed to a new business and I wish Rob every success - I'm not a tattoo lover at all, but that's my problem :D But it's good to see someone having the guts to try and set up a business in these difficult times, and it's great that our area has a variety of businesses to suit all tastes!
