Re: kinleigh folkard & hayward

Does anyone know what the average turnover per month of house buying and selling is now versus say a year ago? Maybe if there's been a marked downturn then it could be cheaper to keep the shop empty (empty rate status and no overheads). Maybe KFH hoped that government housebuilding and new homes asp...

Re: Sydenham under a new flight path?

Just to say that I used to notice the 6am one (loud enough to wake me up if nearing wakefulness); for two or three months now, the 5.30am one as well as a 6am one. Can't say I've noticed daytime noise from those I see, being South->North over Bell Green(?) and West->East over/towards Forest Hill. So...

Re: zigghy coffea shop

sydenhamboy, in my view, it might be that things have to cost that much to cover overheads, especially rent & rates, but I can't see me queuing outside, or mums/dads with kids, at £3.55 per head for a basic cup of tea/coffee and slice of cake. Maybe the food, which you say you didn't try, offers bet...

Re: zigghy coffea shop

sydenhamboy, you don't mention pricing. Would you say it's reasonable for what's offered? From what you say, it doesn't seem to be aimed at high-end customers with concomitant loaded pricing.

Re: Ella Kissi-Debrah - A Very Sad Death & a Welcome Reversal

I'm not surprised being one who can't cope with diesel fumes easily at all. People can help by not sitting stationary with engines running plus TFL either could or should do better to "keep London moving" which it claims to but clearly doesn't in the Bell Green to Forest Hill route (and elsewhere of...

The colour is fine, but is it necessary to have the scrolling effect on the icons next to each thread?

Re: Funds needed for Sydenham Library Roof

Is there really not even £300 in the council's coffers for essential repairs to a community library that''s already been abandoned to sink or swim? It's hardly money desired for fripperies or enhancements when it's for essential repairs. Words fail me. Is there a donations box on the library counter?

I find the "prosilver" skin option (via User Control Panel -> Board Preferences) suits my eyes better so immediately switched to that; thankfully the alternative option is still available. No doubt the default colour will appeal, perhaps more so if just STF is on the screen, so not needing to re-foc...

Re: Washing machine

You could ask Sydenham DIY Tel: 020 8776 7020 near Sydenham station as they're affiliated with a plumbing shop and one or the other could probably offer a name. Assuming it might well take two visits, perhaps check pricing first in case an hourly minimum charge would apply. I'm surprised a flooring ...

Looking at the building control page on reporting a dangerous structure, it seems that anyone can report it, they don't have to live there.

Re: LEWISHAM COUNCIL PLANNING ENFORCEMENT DESPAIR

If it does transpire that you should indeed move out, either sooner or later, it might be worth finding out beforehand who will pay the temporary rental and getting their confirmation in writing and quickly. I'm sorry this adds another question rather than solving anything.
