Re: Camping in Mayow Park?

I've always wondered about where one "moves people on to" if they don't have a permanent base or aren't part of a travelling community. In the past it might not have mattered that much (out of site out of mind) but these days that is not in style. I'm thinking about how these days society demands th...

Re: Home deliveries

Here is a list of local suppliers who are offering a delivery services - I'm sure it will change regularly and there will always be firms not on it who are offering deliveries.

Re: Woodfall's Golden 50

They offer a great service - I know I could get cheaper at other places but not the service and pleasure from being served by interested knowledgeable staff. I am more comfortable not treating my vision as a commodity - I prefer a relationship with opticians. It's not about the individual transactio...

Re: PlanningWatch [w/b 16/12/2019] Sydenham Surgery

I have no idea what is planned for this site.

Howevee I know that some Sydenham residents sometimes find themselves homeless and some bailed.

Better that there are local places for them to live in and so avoid displacement from their (our) local community.

Happy Christmas to all.

Re: PFC Penge Food Centre Sydenham Road

I know Amazon are getting into fresh food deliveries and own Whole Foods - but can you now actually get deliveries from PFC using Amazon Prime? I didn't know they had a web presence. If they do that would be amazing. I suppose it would be something similar to how Uber Eats or Deliveroo pick up from ...

Re: Property is Theft

Great 'clickbait' title - I thought this would be something from the 1960s rather than the 1660s. A good informative read nevertheless. Thanks.

Re: Daniel Morgan Murder

A valuable reminder that the "ends do not justify the means". Honestly believing in someone's guilt (even if true) doesn't justify the fabrication of evidence.

Re: Loft conversion recommendations

Taylored Lofts have done similar work work for us recently. They are local, a family firm, and specialise in lofts (as the name suggests) but are also general builders (extensions, new builds etc.). They have good links with planning experts to help that part of the journey. They've been doing lofts...

Re: Live Sydenham Train Departures

Not sure whether I'll actually use this but I live between Sydenham and Sydenham Hill stations and often decide on the fly which one to use - this seems a quick way of assessing what's actually going on at the time. And then making a decision as to travel routes.

Re: Hillcrest Estate - report published

As I said I can't answer your question but on the recent (pre-decision) tour of the site with councillors and architects the architects were surprised at how steep some of the slopes were and how much water flowed under the site. This seems to confirm as was suggested earlier that the architects, wh...

Re: Hillcrest Estate - report published

Or maybe they used this report as a diversionary excuse for cancellation as it enabled them to walk away from the scheme as it stood without having to acknowledge it was fundamentally flawed. I.e. they could maintain some semblance of dignity. This is pure conjecture on my part; I have no inside kno...
