Welcome to Sydenham Kate. I second Syd's suggestion. Ted is very good, always cleans up, does a very professional job and is reasonably priced.

Re: Should Mayo Road have controlled parking?

Just want to ask if a CPZ would affect parking for Mayo Vets? I use it often and usually park close by on Mayo Road, which is useful if you have sick animal.

Re: Why high streets die

I wasn't aware of any Red Routes in Sydenham. Personally, I think parking works pretty well. There is no longer enforcement of the ambulance bays on Tansfeld Road and the free car park is rarely full. High rents have been blow to businesses in the past, but I note that there continue to be new openi...

Re: Helicopter over the Hillcrest estate

Thanks for being such a w@nker. It was more or less right over my house, not moving and hovering low and I was concerned that there might have been some danger to my family. But thanks to you, I'm re-assured.

To be honest, I don't think that KFH will move in there now. The whole sector is under a lot of pressure and I...

Re: Waste Collection

I agree Stuart. Chatted to one of them at Angie's flower stall as he was about top tackle the mess outside the Sydenham Centre and the Post Office. He seemed undaunted. Well done to the street cleaners. Was a rotten day to be out.
