Re: Aw, the fellas are selling the villa :-(

Now it doesn't leak, isn't falling down and has got back to its Victorian style we hope the next owners love it as much. We researched its history, built its family tree and hosted the great-grand-daug...

Re: Smart Chaps

I am interested in which barber you got the bad haircut from. Interestingly enough, I don't get a good cut from the owner but all the others have been great.

Re: HIGH STREET REVIEWS

A friend (who lives in West London) sent this to me.
He was impressed but I saw who the authors were. Still good PR for Sydenham though!

Re: Spooky house on Venner Road

Re: VENNER ROAD 'CROFTON LODGE' DETACHED VILLA

Thank you - the house is certainly very enjoyable to live in - and even more interesting to find out about. I guess the neighbour at 86 is Tim, we have been speaking and he has shared some information with us. I would be really pleased to hear from Steve who I noticed on these forums is a real Syden...

Dog Daycare

I have just moved into Sydenham and am looking for recommendations for a good reliable dog walker who can take our miniature Schnauzer five days per week - pick up in the morning before 9am and drop back after 4pm. Many thanks
