Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

I'm reasonably sure Sydenham had a Woolworth's where Supadrug is now. Anyone remember? That retail unit has undergone a number of different retailers in its fairly (comparatively) short history.

Anyway back to the Sainsbury's unit - I understand they are recruiting.

Activity this morning in the rear unit. Couple of guys measuring up inside and another outside saying it's going to be Sainsbury's - opening in about 7 weeks!

Awaiting confirmation as to who will take the front unit.

Re: RIP LA Fitness

Stuart If you are suggesting I begin another campaign, the answer is "no"! It's time for someone else who feels as strongly as you do to take on the mantle, and time for me to hang up my boots. I still have one or two irons in the fire that I hope to see through, not least The Greyhound. Someone nee...

Re: Electricity problems?

All the lights were out in Station Approach at that time last night although lights were on in Sydenham Road.

Also, although lights were on in houses in Lawrie Pk Road, the street lights were not here functioning either.

Re: Would you move?

I moved to Sydenham in 1969.

Suits me fine - lots of green spaces, fantastic transport links and a great community. Can't think of anywhere else I'd rather live!
