Re: Syd Society help request for pavement opposite library?

It would be wonderful if the tyre shop was made to clean up its act. It's just so inconsiderate to have all the dirt and mess outside people's doors. Surely they can find a better location? If they need to use the street and public areas to operate, then they shouldn't be there. They are totally dis...

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

Ditto to Perryman. The gas holders are extremely ugly and really bring the area down in my opinion. Am I missing something?

Re: Location Location Location Channel 4

Absolutely! "Beautifully leafy", they described Sydenham as. We've really moved up in the world since Sydenham's first and only other appearance on the show about five years ago when I think they showed a couple who said the high street was awful and they couldn't possibly live here.

Re: Thinking of setting up a singing group

Hi Liliput and Monkeyarms, thanks for your posts and sorry for my slow reply! Thanks for your interest Liliput. I'm still waiting for more interest so I'm thinking maybe by the time I get a group big enough, it might be January - so am working to that I think - but will keep you posted. In the meant...

Re: Living Streets Lewisham

My only contribution really at this time would be to suggest that pavements should be more user friendly. Sydenham Road is a joy now after the tripping and falling of a decade of lousy pavement. Can that happen if even potholes in roads (and we know cars have priority in budget expenditure) aren't ...

Re: Thinking of setting up a singing group

Hello, that would be great. Thank you! I work during the day but can pick it up from somewhere in the evening or alternatively maybe you could leave it somewhere for me to collect?

Thinking of setting up a singing group

I'm thinking of setting up a singing group and wanted to see if there is any interest? A bit about me: 30s, female, I've sung in choirs and a cappella groups before and my last quartet group broke up about a year ago so I'm interested in setting something similar up again. Ideally it would be a grou...

Re: Late Knights - Beer Revolution

Does anyone know if this is a pop-up or will be permanent? I haven't been yet but think it looks brilliant - exactly what Sydenham needs and would love it to be a permanent feature!!

Re: Noise from around Home Park

I also noticed this and thought that there was a music event taking place in the park. I live on larkbere road so the sound really travelled. When I waslked to Lower Sydenham station there didn't seem to be any event going on and the sound was coming from the back of the estate so possible from a pr...

Re: Derelict property in Champion Crescent

I only moved into the area in November and my plumber who grew up around here told me that the owner of the property was doing some building works there many years ago without planning permission and he was told by the council to stop or undo his work or something... so in protest he walked away and...

Can anyone recommend a good painter?

Can anyone recommend a good painter who is experienced with painting sash windows and the outside of houses? Some old flakey paint will need to be taken off so someone experienced etc. I've been using MyBuilder.com for other work but the tradesmen who turn up can be a bit hit or miss so I wanted to ...

Re: Market Research - Cinema

Hi, I would absolutely love to have a local cinema further down Sydenham High Road towards the community library direction as it would be a really fantastic way to regenerate that area whilst still being close to the action. I've lived close to a Picturehouse in the past (a 3 minute walk) and absolu...

Re: Better buy: Sydenham or West Norwood?

Hi all, thank you all for your advice! It sounds like both areas are fairly equal, all considered. The regeneration plans in West Norwood sound really exciting and I think the place has a nice village feel which I like but I think the open space and transport links (and bigger flat) in Sydenham come...

Better buy: Sydenham or West Norwood?

Hi all, I'm split between buying a flat in Sydenham (the lower end, close to the Community Library in one of the Victorian conversions) or buying in West Norwood. I made an offer on a flat in West Norwood that fell through and then found a place in Sydenham a couple of weeks ago but have since learn...
