Replacing panes in a greenhouse

Hi,

Does anyone know of a company in Sydenham (or nearby) that will cut perspex to size? Some of the panes in my greenhouse are broken and I need them replaced.

Thanks

Hi, Go with your instincts. You said you did not feel particularly safe in daylight. Imagine how you'd feel after a night out and 15 min walk from the station. I also live on Fairlawn Park and that's about how far I would go if I was a single female. I may be doing Winchfield Road a disservice but y...

Went to BHT for Sunday lunch (Pork and Lamb) with the inlaws yesterday. Food was a long time coming after we ordered. Although they did give us complimentary drinks to compensate (fair enough). Food was slightly cold but delicious, better than the sad offerings we got at the Dolphin on one occasion....

I wouldn't use Select a Door - we ordered a door which never arrived. After much back and forth we went elsewhere. Also have been told by a reputable carpenter that they do not hang doors correctly and are a bit slap dash.

Hi Tim, I have an allotment. I think part of the problem is that the allotments fall under Bromley and FP falls under Lewisham. Saying that I have been told by the SNT that they do liase with the Bromley police with regards to the allotments and are aware of the vandalism that has been taking place....

Sydenham Online and Shopping News

Just a thought, Sydenham Online on the homepage has news from 2004 and 2005. Not quite relevant anymore, worth removing? Same with Shopping News very out of date.

I think the more up to date and relevant the news the more likely people will return for another visit.

Hi All, Lee, I have pm'd you with the majority of this message so this for the benefit of any other interested parties. With regards to the NW meeting, it was quite a small turnout, small but significant. We confirmed 3-4 co-ordinators for FP and the turnout from the Sydenham Safer N'hood Team was i...

Maybe we could just cut and paste East Dulwich into Sydenham High Street and be done with it. I am all for improving the high street, and I am as aspirational as anyone else. But the tone of some of the posts in this thread and others has nothing do with improving things and more to do with removing...

I have lived in Syd for 7 years and never been in the Golden Lion. :oops: I cannot believe they are going to play live jazz (my passion) and I can't make it.

Gutted from Sydenham :(

Perhaps one way of making the high street a bit more cohesive in terms of looks is for Lewisham Council to limit the types of shop signs/banners/colours that new businesses can use. Not so that all the shops look identical but so that continuity can be seen when you look down (and up :roll: ) the hi...

Good to see there is life after Mayow Road and the Dolphin. I was starting to think I lived in the twilight zone. There seems to be little interest the the area towards the library etc (discounting the Bell Green Development). Interesting isn't it that the Cobbs Corner to Mayow Road residents get co...
