Oh great, thanks for the info. Should hopefully be sorted by now, more or less, then.
I drove past where the burst main was last night and it was all back to normal, all roadworks gone. My shower seemed a lot better for it this morning... finally after 3 weeks with very low pressure.

There was a radio news item today that the latest trend is of stealing mattresses from hotels.
I heard that on Radio X today.

Re: Low water pressure

Boy, the water pressure was low this morning. Switched on the shower so I could wash my hair, and the low-pressure warning light immediately came on. No water. On Friday 6th a water pipe burst by the junction of Lawrie Park Road and Crystal Palace Park Road so we have that causing low pressure now ...

On a separate issue, does anyone know what happened at the NatWest bank in the high street on Saturday afternoon? There were two police cars and an ambulance car parked outside, and a crowd of people milling around the entrance.
Someone was taken ill in the bank and sadly passed away.

Seemingly Ubers are discriminated against in central London as they are subject to the congestion charge which black cabs are exempt from.

Uber are not being discriminated personally, it's all non-black cabs. So it affects all Mini cabs, Addison, Uber and all the others too.

Re: Chaos at Crystal Palace funfair

That must have been terrifying, not just for your poor children but for you too as a parent. I agree with all your questions. They should have called the police at the first sign of trouble not "chased them off".. I'd have one further questions... I wonder what the parents of those youths would thin...

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.
