Watch Sainsbury's Bell Green staff perform a special rendition of "Sunday" from Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's hit musical "Sunday in the Park with George". The performance - organised by Alex Parker, a musical director and current employee at the Sainsbury's Sydenham store - was the climax of ...

SydSoc ? Are you sure ?
I *think* but I'm not sure. Quite possible that it could just be Network Rail. He's not involved as I understand it, but @JMLF may have more info?

Re: Mural?

Network Rail is paying for it and I *think* SydSoc is behind it. I've been told that the design was supposed to be shared online somewhere for feedback, but I'm not sure where that is. Just had a quick look on SydSoc Facebook page and website but couldn't see anything there. The mural will be on the...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Hello again, I'm sad to report that I've been targeted again on Twitter by two sockpuppet accounts that have appeared this week. Obviously I don't know for sure who's behind them, so I won't make any claims here, but I have my suspicions - you can read for yourselves here and form your own opinions:...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

"why is Chris tweeting this now?" Resurrecting one of his worst fabrications. Any ideas? I think the reason is probably this. I've unlocked my Twitter account and started tweeting about local stuff again. I did a Twitter search on "SE23" yesterday and one of the tweets it threw up was from a guy as...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Hi. I'd largely put this whole sordid affair behind me, but two rather alarming tweets came to my attention last night. Both were subtweets (subtweet = a tweet targeting a certain person without directly mentioning them or their username) which, to anyone au fait with the Flava Baker drama, were cle...

Historic Sydenham spire built by Christopher Wren to be restored

A historic stone church spire built by Sir Christopher Wren which sits in the middle of a Sydenham community is to be restored. Originally found on top of St Antholin's Church in the City of London, the spire was moved to Round Hill in the 1800s after it was damaged in a storm, where it is now surro...

Ellie Reeves

I'm full of admiration for Ellie who has been out and about campaigning whilst 9 months pregnant - anyone who's been 9 months pregnant will know this is no mean feat! Here's a piece she wrote for inews about the challenges of being heavily pregnant when a snap election is called - https://inews.co.u...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Some ad-hominem threads of other local forums were/are breathtakingly destructive. Kangaroo courts, conspiracy theory and mob bullying of individuals, in some cases encouraged by the forum owners themselves. That will never happen here... Re-instate the Flava Baker thread. Then people can determine...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I have hope your participation in the moderation team is an opportunity. In that case, it would be helpful perhaps if ForestHull could respond to the points people have raised above but remain unaddressed? As you said previously, Stuart: It would be good if they [the mods] could be open about where...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

And has CB appointed ForestHull on the basis that he has asked no such awkward questions and thereby CB has deemed the appointee to be another compliant soul in CBWorld ? Considering every single person I spoke to during the Flava Baker debacle had suspicions around ForestHull - at worst a CB sock ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Personally I have always disliked Twitter and I think it has had a hugely negative impact on respectful debate, fact-based policy making, democracy and accountability. I wish more people would disengage from Twitter, just like they do for the most harmful internet forums and tabloid newspapers. I'v...
