House Fire. Started around 5.45. Three fire engines in attendance. House was being renovated, apparently. Hope everyone is ok.

Alwyn, I didn't realise the queue was 125 long! Whenever I've called its been below 10, but that was before Covid.

Re: Flu-Jabs @ Sydenham Green now Covid test compatible

I have to disagree with Syd about Sydenham green morning phone appointments. I've rang a few times around 8.00 am and while I may have been on the phone for 10 minutes or so, I've always managed to get a same day appointment when needed. I think this year that the practice has probably been overwhel...

Re: Does Lewisham Council take it constituents support for granted?

Catford has two railway stations.
I have lived here for 25 years and have seen a lot of changes; some of it instigated by the Council. The High Street regeneration had a mixed reception but there was considerable investment and it is better than it was before.

Re: Restaurants and Pubs - the New Norm

The reason The Dolphin has gone over to pizza is that the landlord's Greenwich pup has closed down and he relocated the pizza oven from there. Also, he has contracted out the food offer to another company that only does pizza. I had to laugh that the day after the Dolphin reopened, Tratt Raff announ...

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

Apparently there is a petition to make Mayo Road safer. Its detailed here, if you can stand all the pop ups. https://www.mylondon.news/news/south-london-news/killer-south-london-road-passersby-18773140 I feel its a bit sensationalist, but three deaths in 10 years sounds high. I dare say there were o...

Re: Barclays closing in October

I'm annoyed by this, but mainly because I never wanted to be a Barclays customer in the first place. I was a member of the Woolwich, which had the branch until demutualisation 1997. Barclays said at the time that they bought the Woolwich for its brilliant customer service, then promptly closed on th...

Re: Sydenham Grand Prix

I saw a bloke on a very noisy, small green motorbike, very fast down Lennard Road earlier tonight. Appeared to be ridden by a middle aged white guy in a grey hoody with no helmet. He was bald and had mad staring eyes. I think he was on something, other than the small green motorbike.
Stay safe

Crash on Sydenham Road

Looks as if there was a very serious accident at the junction of Newlands Park and Sydenham Road. I say accident but there only appears to be once car involved and it looks burned out? When I drove past at 2.45 the car was surrounded by police tape. Does anyone know what happened? I think it was a B...

Re: Recommend a garage for MOT?

Any Volvo owners would do well to use Dundalk Motors in Brockley. Good work at a fraction of the cost of a Volvo dealer. Knighton Motors for non-specialist and MOTs.
