Re: 20mph zone proposed for 'Thorpes' area of Sydenham

My reading is that 20 MPH zones are self enforcing, with traffic calming measures. 20 MPH limits require repeaters every so often. Also of note is that the police rarely monitor speeds in 20 MPH Zones or limits. I suspect that the funding available is insufficient to put speed humps in on each of th...

Re: Police stations closing

The main issue I have with closing of local police stations is that the SNT officers will now have to be based in Catford. This means that they will spend part of their shift travelling from Catford to our area and back again, which will mean less time policing. I would also expect that other Police...

Sydenham Library - Pass or Fail?

There is an interesting thread over at Brockley Central on the success or failure of the transition of Crofton Park library to Eco Computer Systems.

Seems like MrC was shooting from the hip. A quick Google turns up LPS1175 as the standard for "intruder resistant building components".

Don't forget that the Jubilee Line upgrade is also due to be delivered this Spring (17 months late), so journey times (and capacity) should be improved there too.

Rolling Stones in Sydenham

According to this article, "in the early Sixties, a BBC producer developed a pop music showcase for Rolf to present and the pilot they made together featured the then unknown Rolling Stones, playing in a little church in Sydenham."

Which church? Anyone know?

Re: Crystal Palace Park

Thank you for clearing that one up. Having just found out how easy it is to get to the NSC, I was worried that we would be without a local pool until Forest Hill's is completed.
