Had been wondering where - locally - to find another... now all I have to do is wait until the spring!...

Re: payless

The most effective thing to do about rubbish etc is to take a digital photo and email it to the Love Lewisham website - details at this link: http://www.lovelewisham.org/Help
Much easier - and faster - than individually contacting all the people JR mentions above!

Fantastic shop - have already had some delicious sea bass (following the recipe card) and Mr Big Ben has had terrific kippers. Great start - and the shop looks brilliant too!
