Re: Robbery at newsagent

I heard today that the small newsagent opposite The Greyhound was robbed at around 5 pm yesterday. A guy (black with a beard and wearing a hood with a baseball cap underneath it), who claimed to have a knife, grabbed money from the till and ran off. Yes, this is true, the owner told me this morning...

Yup.

Also, replying to posts is fine, but quoting posts causes an error page.

Re: Payless Food & Wine on Kirkdale

Any idea on what it is going to be? According to another nearby reatiler, it was going to be some kind of poundshop, but I was told that some time ago. The owner has been in my flat a few times with some builders to repair the flat roof outside my bedroom window which was cauing leaks into the shop...

What's wrong with just wishing Mad Dough well? It's hard enough setting up a business as it is without creating unfounded anxiety.

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Agree Troll comment very unjustified/unfair. I was finding that debate somewhat interesting up until that point, albeit slightly off topic as it goes to demonstrate how complex these affairs can be. Back on topic and my opinion (of which I do not invite or need comment - it’s already clearly unders...

Re: Incident at the bottom of Westwood Hill

If he caused the injuries himself, we are all better off without idiots like this on the road. "IF" being the key word. We don't know the facts.

Re: Incident at the bottom of Westwood Hill

There was also a un-marked police car with a senior looking person that arrived around 07:35am so it would appear to be a very serious incident or one that involved a police vehicle requiring a full incident response.

Must have happened around 7am

Re: Sunday - Finally a day of peace

Its been quiet for a few days now since I saw them up a ladder in the siren box. Though I suspect they did not want to pay for the alarm company to fix it is because of some signs that went up today saying it is closed until 31st May when it opens under new management as "Ocean Fish Bar" where on op...

Re: Sunday - Finally a day of peace

I’m fairly certain that the alarm actually going off was above the ATM for Sainsbury’s. If you go in and tell them, they switch it off. It is obviously faulty but they will turn it off once made aware. No, it's not, I know that one as it has gone off before and the staff at Sainsbury always sort it...

Re: Moving to Sydenham

Sydenham is well situated for transport as others have mentioned even though it takes 60% longer to reach London Bridge than it did when I moved here 32 years ago. 32 years ago there were less commuters and less trains on the tracks... of course it won't be as quick... 60% is an over-exaggaration t...
