Tailor/Seamstress wanted

Mr Savvy and I love the Dolphin and are regulars now. We'd like to see the Sunday lunch presented on proper plates rather than in the 'tappas' bowls. The tappas bowls are a bit small (and you still get a plate underneath anyway) and actually make the portions look smaller than they are. Mr S placed...

What can I do with my old monitor and microwave...?

We have both these things, both broken and I believe not worth fixing, sitting in the shed taking up space. We don't drive so we can't get over to whereever the dump is in New Cross. Will LC take them away for a fee? Can we put them in the bin?
Does anyone know? :?

I've always found this pub very friendly (staff and clientele) and Thursday nights attracts a very diverse crowd aged from 16 (it seemed to me) to 60 - all joining in with the best karaoke in town - there was a rendition of 'Redemption Song' a couple of weeks ago that brought tears to my eyes! Great...

I like the Railway! True, it is very smokey in there and that is off putting even to me, a smoker - but it it a 'proper old boozer' with real charachters who have been going for years.... The landlord and landlady are very friendly indeed and we met a gent in there who has now become our decorator, ...

Me too, I was very pleased to see the article and my husband and I actually did the walk suggested by the article (leaving out the bits we know around the Thorpes). I must say there are great views on a walk through Hornimans towards Honour Oak and it was an interesting, and sometimes challenging (q...
