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

For all those complaining about the additional traffic on Sydenham Road and Mayow Road - the whole point is to encourage people to walk or cycle rather than drive. If you don't like being stuck in your car, think of the alternatives.

Re: Masks

Yeah, all those uneducated Remainers are now walking around without masks. The selfishness of them!

Local Pubs - Best Beer Gardens

The Telegraph published its best beer gardens in London for the bank holiday weekend. Its a premium article, but I can tell you that our local pubs did very well. Noting that seven of these are in South London: 1. The Albion, Islington 2. The People's Park Tavern, Hackney 3. The Eagle, Shepherd's Bu...

Re: Any news on Mamma Dough?

Yes, I was wondering about this as well. What concerns me is there’s a new Lewisham council note saying mama dough has an application for the store front they are currently fitting out and any complaints need to be lodged by early February.... Did someone initially complain and block their developm...

Yes, but it takes time to plan, consult and fund. Phase 1 is approved, and construction will start in due course Phase 2 is the proposed extension to Catford, Sydenham and Hayes.

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

Sorry, I don't see that this has anything to do with the extension beyond Lewisham? And even if it does, I have very major reservations about losing the Hayes line. It's quite long enough as it is - and getting longer - without diverting round any more of SE London than is absolutely necessary. You...

I thought it was already a star crossing. Both directions go at the same time.

Toys R Us

It looks like we will have another empty retail outlet following today’s news.

A shame, as I found it a useful store.

Hopefully, we are able to attract a new tenant without too many hassles from the Council or Sydenham Society.

Subway has been closed for a few weeks for “technical” reasons.

Re: 20 mph speed limits

Speeding in Sydenham seems to be getting worse by the day. Why arent the police doing more about this? Surely, mobile speed cameras are an easy solution. Who can we escalate this to, before we see more carnage on the roads. God help the day a family or small children are seriously injured or killed ...

The Sydenham Society did not make any comments to Lewisham about this application, although it was discussed.
