There was a radio news item today that the latest trend is of stealing mattresses from hotels.
I'm torn between thinking that this is a bad thing (obviously), and a level of admiration for the organisation that must be involved in that - mattresses are heavy!

Re: Dog friendly cafes in Sydenham or Forest Hill

Canvas & Cream in FH have a dog section on their menu! And I've definitely seen dogs in there before.

Re: Old Co-Op and circus posters

Is it possible that a letting agent was involved in putting up the posters? That's pretty weird, either way.

Re: What’s going on at x?

I know nothing about any of these, but it would be great to fill some of the empty spaces! I hope it's not just the landlords tarting them up a bit, or if it is then it succeeds as a strategy.

Re: Sydenham Extinction Demo

As a train commuter who came in from Silverdale, the only sign of this was a bloke in hi-vis with leaflets outside the station. As I was focused on getting a coffee (in my reusable cup) at the time, I didn't actually properly register why he was there. So maybe not a resounding success?

Re: Bell Green Proposals

Isn't this just a group of folks wishes? And nothing to do with the council/land owners? Yes, but I imagine they must think there's some point in doing this and asking people's opinions - presumably to then try and campaign for the council/land owners to improve the site. If they're just doing it f...

Re: Bell Green Proposals

I assumed when they said mixed retail/housing that it would be the current favoured style of block of flats with Tesco Metro/Sainsburys Local in the bottom of it, rather than the big supermarket we currently have. That's not an ideal replacement for a big supermarket in my view as they tend to be pr...

Re: New houses

Is this the site somewhere on the other side from the school which has already been levelled? I note from the picture that they might well loom over the houses on the side road opposite them: Bromley might find this objectionable, but I don't know about Lewisham. It's further up Mayow Road, towards...

Would they need planning permission if it's not a change of use? (I know very little about planning permission)

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

There wasn't a Flavabaker account on .life - it was a Twitter account, highlighted by CB. So as he wasn't posting as Flavabaker on.life, there was no need to verify that account there.

Re: NEW: LGBTQIA+ Book Group at Kirkdale Bookshop!

Why on earth would an event advertisement not be allowed? They're very common on the forum and they're an important part of the community. The abbreviation used is very common, some people have (reasonable) issues with part of it but no one appears to be upset at the event in question. Why on earth ...

I don't think CB is ever going to admit that he's secretly an unpleasant person and the extent of his duplicity.

However... it may well be the covenant refers to the people of the district of Catford. It was an urban district by nature so whether or not it was formally governed as a UDC is somewhat irrelevant .

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

That's strange, as I'd expect there to be records for it somewhere if it existed other than in a mention in deeds. Regardless, it clearly has nothing to do with Beckenham Place Park as the LCC bought it directly from the Cator family. It was given to the borough. The Cator family disposed of their ...
