I agree - I won’t bother walking down to the Dolphin now that they have a menu restricted to Pizza.

Re: Home Park today

If you tweet Met Police when you see something like this, they are much more likely to respond.

Tranzmission Festival (Rave)

The very fact that the rave day/night is going ahead...Is disturbing... This is despite COVID risking the increase of the “R” number in our local area. Considering the likelihood of substance abuse, why is nobody talking about this and the possible negative impacts, be that the NHS, police or otherw...

Re: rubbish outside penge station

I would suggest the FixMyStreet app is a much better way to report. I’ve always had good success with It and that way it generates a data log that can identify repeat issues and help prioritise work efforts

Re: Social distancing on the High Road

Good to hear a more positive perspective.
I did actually walk down today (to walk through to Mayo) and most people seemed conscious / wearing masks and keeping their distance

Re: Social distancing on the High Road

That’s really quite worrying to hear.
What makes people so thoroughly ignorant and inconsiderate?
Thank you for sharing, I shall also continue to avoid until I hear better reports

Re: PFC Penge Food Centre Sydenham Road

Maybe I had bad luck then, as I bought some sausages from there and they were decidedly average in quality. I used to buy mine from Villagers in Beckenham (although I don’t eat sausages often, it must be said). It actually put me off buying more meat there, so interesting that others seem to really ...

Re: Bell Green Travis Perkins

I personally felt that it was fairly obvious that if the gas holders went, a more Industrial / retail style use of the space would follow and traffic would increase. It is a good spot for a Travis Perkins now that it is being cleared. So I wouldn’t say I was overly happy, but neither am I at all sur...

Stroma also reported it to HSE.
So indeed the problem now sits with Lewisham Council.

I have now tweeted Lewisham Council and Ellie Reeves...
