Re: Who chose

The colour is fine, but is it necessary to have the scrolling effect on the icons next to each thread? I can't stand things moving onscreen and if this remains I will not be able to spend much time here.

Re: Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

It would be worth your looking at SE23.life to see a long thread discussing the issue in detail, including the issue of having a new tall building on the site.

Re: A Leaf out of East Dulwich Forum's book?

I agree that the EDF is much more engaged and busy than the forums in Sydenham and Forest Hill. The problem is that there need to be enough members to be sufficiently active. The SE23.Life forum has posts fairly regularly, more so than SE26.Life (the other Forest Hill forum is moribund). This place ...

Re: Kirkdale Costcutter

One of the people who worked there told me before it closed that the owners were deliberately running down the stock. But I don't know why, or why it closed.

Re: sticky:RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

I'm sorry they were not allowed their branding, but it looks very nice, as does what I can glimpse of the interior.

Does anyone know when Mamma Dough will open?

Re: New yoga studio?

Re: New yoga studio?

What kind of noise do yoga classes make? None, in my experience.

I start to wonder if the planning office is not trying to run the area into the ground. This would have been a good addition, much better than a bookies. There seems to be no will to help the area flourish.

Re: Poodle Club drinks

I have just been there and so can perhaps help. There is a bar, but the venue is small and during the acts you need to be quiet. However, before and after the show, and during multiple intervals, there is time for drinking and chatting (afterwards there is dancing too). I don't think you would go to...

Re: Poodle club

We went to the Poodle Club tonight for the first time and had a terrific night. Fun acts, lots of laughs, great atmosphere.

A wonderful addition to the area. We will be back.

Re: Sydenham book club needs new members

Thank you for posting information here rather than just PMing in response to queries. It is harder for people considering joining to find out anything about the group and what kind of books you read otherwise.

Costcutter on Kirkdale

Does anyone know what's up with Costcutter on Kirkdale? It suddenly closed on Wed and hasn't been open since. Sign on the door says "closed today."
