Who's standing in the Sydenham by election in May?

I've had a check and unfortunately The Official Monster Raving Loony Party will not be fielding a candidate this time round, unsure about Lord Bucket Head.

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

On Christmas eve, the responsible Lewishambles officer told me that, due to COVID-19 striking the Archdiocese’s agent, the planning inquiry’s statement of common ground hadn’t been progressed. That means there has been no agreement on how to limit the scope of the inquiry, or to s...

Re: NEW SIGHTINGS OF THE SYDENHAM PANTHER

Sydenham Panther aka The Beast of Sydenham.

Re: New Gym for Sydenham

Sydenhamites deserve a Harvey Nichols express or at the very least for Heston Blumenthal to open a Fat Duck style eatery. I have written to both extolling the virtues of London's most up and coming neighborhood and attached photos of Sydenham High St to give them an idea of just how dynamic the area...

Re: Any news on the proposed Harris Secondary school?

I, for one, hope the Harris Sydenham is not named after the now disgraced ex-Sydenhamonian Rolf!!! Scandalous if it is.

Sad news, it appears some bandits have vandalised the Meglasaorous: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-52789270
Lots of happy memories going to visit the dinasours both as a kid and with my own children. Hopefully they apprehend the perpetrators and make them pay for the damage.

Re: Sydenham Tyres

Hi all Does anyone know what is happening at Sydenham tyres? I saw a stack of a few hundred trees outside the shop when it was closed. How is that allowed it could kill someone if it collapsed. It’s outrageous!! Piles of trees! Maybe they're doing some sort of environmental offsetting, for every ty...
