Re: Knife crime in Sydenham

The bit about 'we haven't got any f.ing money' wasn't actually true. I had just paid my friend my rent (as she was also my landlady). She had £360 in her pocket.

Re: Knife crime in Sydenham

Yes I have been the victim of a knife crime, he was about 14 and he put his hand around my neck with a knife - the friend I was with took his arm from my neck and said 'we haven't got any f.ing money' and he and his mate ran off. And yes, I did feel sorry for him. It was quite some years ago and he ...

Re: My take on London's Riots

Thankyou STF... Hear Hear all the way xx I don't know how you have the patients to carry on knowing that some people really are too narrow minded, selfish (and lets face it, just not very bright) to understand what you are saying. But I do, and I thank you.

Re: This forum and the Sydenham Society

Syd Society Members probably don't post coz this is all a bit too 'lowbrow' for them... too many mealy mouthed anti-immigration, tabloid reading ranters going on about 'benefit scum' and calls for a fat-tax. I would guess its all a bit tedious for for people who are above the mire -maybe they have b...

Because I reported that to Safer Neighbourhoods last week for getting a bit lairy with tatooed face man (he was drunk, it was getting excitable)... Safer Neighbourhoods were helpfull.

Re: People power

All the banks were closed and the co=op but that might have been to let people who might have to travel through, or to - places where there might be trouble get home. We were told at work we could go early for that very reason; for people who might have to drive or go through Croydon or places where...

Re: People power

I was there at 4.15 and it was fine, very busy. You make it sound like the road is closed and everyone has deserted the place, there were still shops open including pfc and hajis. And lots of people out and about.

Re: Post all the news of the Riots here (To make it easy)

I agree. I'm not in favour of boarding up shops and us all going home to cower behind the sofa. That's like saying 'come and get us'. These are youths, not the attack of the zombies. Don't just lie down people! I'll be leaving work at four and I'll be in the high street going about my business and w...

Re: Post all the news of the Riots here (To make it easy)

I think it would be interesting to know how many of these kids have hands-on, engaged and interested Dads? In fact, how many of the MOTHER'S of these teenagers had Dads who positively engaged with them as they grew up? I think its time to stop thinking its OK for teenage girls to get pregnant, it is...

Re: London Fire Brigade website

The MPS need to publicise the alternative to 999 for "non-urgent" calls more widely.
Or change it to something memorable. There has been a successful pilot in the Midlands of using the number 101.

Re: Can anyone tell me about the domed building on Cobbs Cor

Its a one bedroom flat, the dome is the bedroom accessed by a spiral staircase. Charming but not very practical. Its been up for sale twice in the past seven years or so.
