Re: What do you think about The Golden Lion?

As an ex public house licensee.... reading the above comments reminds me very much of an ethos I lived by when running pubs. 1. Clean the lager lines every two weeks 2. Clean the real ale lines every other barrel change at most, every barrel change even better. The yeast build up on the lines with a...

Re: kinleigh folkard & hayward

I walked past this morning & it’s finally open with actual real life people working!!! Wait until they notice that in heavy rain, the drain outside overflows and when buses go past the water gets pushed right up a few cm's above the bottom of their front door and will likely go inside. Every si...

PSA- Post Office Cashpoint

Posted on the Sydehham Facebook page 3 hourts ago:-
Beware of the post office cashpoint on the High Street. Someone has put a device on it to stop your cash coming out. Managed to wrestle by notes out before they got retained but don't use it. Will report it to the police

Re: Police crack down on e-scooters

The problem here is that the police will get it in the neck whatever they do. When they run crackdowns on drivers with no insurance for example (and cars are confiscated and crushed for such an offence), people will cry out for action on e-scooters. And vice versa. It bothers me that everything on ...

Re: Masks after 19th

Hi all, just wondering if anyone plans to keep wearing a mask after “freedom day” In high populated places like public transport, busy shops etc I probably will. I'd rather not risk catching something and passing it on to my aged mother when I take her food shopping each week. Whilst we are both do...

Astrazeneca Jab at Sydenham Green

If like me, you got your jab in March at Sydenham Green, you may want to check the batch number on your card. It appears that some batches, whilst effective, were produced by a company in India that do not have an EU license so some European countries wont allow you to travel across it's borders. Fu...

I will admit I was intrigued by what was going on, quite a few sirens at the same time so definitely chasing someone. :)

Must be tied in someway to the planned reduction of lockdown the following day 21 June? How weird.

Re: Covid Vaccination- Sydenham Green Group Practice

Had my 2nd jab there this morning at 1030am and just like last time, no queues, friendly people... I was in and out in under 5 minutes.

Feeling quite lightheaded and a bit hard to concentrate.. but even if I feel worse tomorrow it's still better than the alternative..

Re: Delivery scooters all parked down Spring Hill

It's not just Nandos. Sainsbury's local now does Uber delivery.

I too noticed how many were parked there recently.. it's become a scooter park.
