Re: Outrageous Acorn Estate Agents

If anyone did that with my house, I'd inform them that I am happy to accept advertising on my property for a fee of £100 per week and then send them an invoice for the first three months! That should get them to shift it quickly!

Re: Sydenham has highest Covid deaths in Lewisham!

We do have the hospice. That might give us a larger number of very vulnerable and frail people.

Virgin broadband down in Lewisham

Anyone else on Virgin Broadband? It seems to have been dead for me for a couple of days now.
I called support and they told me it is a planned upgrade and that it might be Thursday before it gets sorted out!

Re: "Zanzibar" Party last night??

There was a 'squatters rights' legal notice there on NYE, but gone today.
I don't know if they are still there or not.

The change into Jubilee line at rush hour. It is mad that only one escalator is in use for going down.

Re: Former Snooker Hall nr Sydenham Station To Let

On for 50k plus VAT and rates. That is a lot considering how work will need to be put into it. However the greyhound is always busy so clearly there is demand.

Today's Google doodle

Today's Google doodle honours Dame Cicely Saunders, founder of St Christopher's hospice. I learned a few things I didn't know about her from the Wikipedia entry. Very inspirational.

Noise from Crystal Palace festival

This seems to have been going on all day. I can still hear it, even though I am a mile from the park and it is 11pm. This is really very unfair and inconsiderate. Does the music need to be so loud? It must be quite literally deafening by the stage.

Sydenham cars

Just wanted to share a positive experience with Sydenham cars last night. Thanks to the French air traffic controllers going on strike my flight was delayed. The official cab company at Gatwick took my order and then cancelled on me but Sydenham cars saved the day! They were cheaper and gave a very ...

Re: Remember to vote today

I suppose the one thing about living in a totally safe seat is that you can vote according to your beliefs. You don't need to hold your nose and vote for a party you don't like to prevent the one you really hate getting in.
However, it also does feel like a rather expensive charade.

Remember to vote today

Pretty much a certainty that Labour will take the council seats and the mayor but please do get out and cast your vote whatever your political persuasion.

Points failure at New Cross Gate

All trains are cancelled today. This is a Network Rail issue - a points failure at New Cross this time. This has been about five days in a row that my commute has been significantly disrupted. Each time a different excuse. I had to take a cab home on Monday night at significant expense. How much lon...

Peak hill avenue street party

Anyone else being disrupted by the noise from this event? Their sound system is way too loud. I can hear it with my double glazing shut and I am quite far away. All for a neighbourly get together (and this is only an annual thing) but don't see the need for such a loud sound system, especially so la...
