Re: Water supply problems in upper Sydenham

I have just spoken to the Thames Water guys working in Westwood Hill. They anticipate the water will be back on what is a widely affected area by 6pm - earlier if they possibly can.

Re: Water supply problems in upper Sydenham

I reported a burst in Westwood Hill close to junction with Longton Grove yesterday morning at 8.10am. Water went off yesterday evening and still not on this morning.

Re: Bridge House Theatre (upstairs at Bridge House Tavern)

I went to the last performance on Sunday and couldn't agree more. With the Brockley Jack Studio, a recognised "Offie", and the Bridge House Theatre we are well served by local buses with easy to get to venues. Add the recently opened East Dulwich Picturehouse (3-screens) which is only 20 minutes awa...

Re: 176 and 197 bus on diversion?

It's interesting that the sewer works on the railway bridge has not been mentioned on this forum. For anyone interested, I stopped to ask the Thames Water guys what was going on about 10 days ago and got the following information. There has been the danger of a collapsed sewer under the railway line...

How about 5 and 7 Kent House Road? No. 5 was a SEE3 Pop up shop but had no loo - so no great future as a retail unit on its own. However no.7 next door is empty - with the lovely ghost-sign "Steptoes" above the fascia. Long time, no trade - the interior should be interesting... Loo? Or no loo, too? ...

To add my two-pennyworth. I've lived in Longton Grove for over 20 years and it's a great area to live in. It's in inner London - and there are the odd incidents, but I've never felt threatened and frequently walk home on my own at night having been to the theatre. Over the past twelve months new whi...

Or should I say -

After all the delays let's not anyone get it wrong again. More haste, less speed. What's another few weeks for Lewisham to ensure no further breaches of the 2010 planning permission occur?
