Re: Flu-Jabs @ Sydenham Green now Covid test compatible

Your local pharmacy will give free flu jabs if you’re eligible and paid ones for those who aren’t. Will save a lot of aggro on phones.

Re: a 60 foot (5G?) mast is coming to Newlands Park

Lewisham rejected one on Wells Park Road. However, isn’t this generally a case of people shifting an issue from one doorstep to another? Most will want 5G but not the infrastructure that goes with it, which is not a workable situation. I cannot believe that Hutchison will be going to the expense of ...

Re: Restaurants and Pubs - the New Norm

Raff’s was and remains an absolute treat. Was there tonight again and undoubtedly the best food for miles around.

The Dolphin’s pizzas are excellent and the staff are taking the pandemic seriously.

Both these businesses deserve support.

Re: Masks

Today, I had to make a journey which involves 4 buses (2 there/2 back). I duly purchased face masks for this having been told like the rest of us that this is now mandatory. I am extremely surprised and upset that the vast majority of who would be classed within "BAME" were NOT wearing face masks. ...

Re: Tranzmission Festival (Rave)

I’d be astonished if this went ahead. They may be trying to sell tickets but there’s a reference on their website to possible cancellation and refunds. I guess the organisers are hoping restrictions will be lifted but I just can’t see that happening.

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

Last I checked these two streets are not exactly heaving with pedestrians weaving in and out of each other. The social distancing argument is rubbish. What about the alleyway that runs from silverdale to station approach? Narrow as hell! So if they are serious about social distancing this should ei...

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

Pleased to see the council is planning temporary barriers on Wells Park Road to stop the dreadful parking on pavements near the park. Social distancing as pedestrians is impossible there at present unless dodging traffic while walking in the road...

Re: PFC Penge Food Centre Sydenham Road

I doubt anything will change with PFC - assuming they're not behaving themselves - unless their business falls off a cliff or they get prosecuted or threatened with prosecution. And the latter relies on us, as consumers, reporting to Trading Standards. You'd have to make sure you had as much evidenc...

Re: Estate agents boards

The boards are very useful on allotments for suppressing weeds, building compost bins etc. The posts can build netting cages. I’d happily take them
