Re: Bell Green Proposals

My first thought is it reminds me of the development on the old greyhound track in Catford. I’ve not been in it but have been past it and it looks and feels strange. I can’t quite put my finger on it. I don’t understand the plan in that the retail park is getting a new Aldi in a couple of weeks time...

Re: Gunshots?

I was also woken up by what sounded like gunshots. I am in lower Sydenham not far from the Catholic primary school. I heard one police siren a short while afterwards but then nothing after that. Any news anywhere about it?

Re: Carpet cleaning - recommendations?

I used Prolux today to clean my carpet on the stairs and landing. I was very impressed with the service the company gave from start to finish. The fact they do Sundays was perfect for me. From start to finish it was very quick - 20 minutes total to clean the carpet and most of the stains came out. T...

Re: Best Breakfast in Sydenham

The cafe in Mayow Park is good but a little pricey compared to a regular greasy spoon. The quality is good though. It does get very busy so getting there early helps.

Re: Sainsbury's Bell Green

Has anyone else noticed an increase in the number of people begging outside Sainsburys? Every time I go at the moment I am also approached in the car park by people asking for money. It is a little disconcerting at times, especially when it’s dark.

Re stock:
I have also noticed empty shelves and reduced choice at Sainsburys but had been wondering if I was imagining things.

Re rats:
I always spot them when I am walking near the flats and yes they are huge; rats on steroids!

Re: Travellers in Girton Road car park

There is a small group parked up in the Bell Green retail park car park in front of the former Toys R Us store. I think 2 caravans and 2 or 3 camper van/mobile home vehicles. Apparently they arrived last night.

Power cuts

Has anyone else experienced power cuts recently? We’ve had 2 in the past week - last Friday morning and again this evening. We are in lower Sydenham.

Re: Fox in house

I think the local vixen used to use our garden as a creche; one summer she had about 6 cubs with her bouncing around all over the place. While they looked cute we didn’t feed them and actively discouraged them. I did a bit of fox proofing having researched various methods which definitely cut down o...

Re: Boarded up shop near Costcutters

I remember when it was a Thai restaurant. In those days (early 90s) we were lucky enough to have 2 brilliant Thai restaurants in the area; there was also one on Dartmouth Road. The one on Dartmouth Road was turned into a Mexican place I think. Anyone else remember this?

Re: Some sort of bar/beer shop

Did Bottle Cave open yet? I was in the East Dulwich one last weekend and the guy said it would open on Tuesday. Just driven down the high street and the shutters are down though.

Hi Sophie,

I contacted the planning officer about this. Apparently the footway will be repaired once the building works are all completed.

Thanks Prince. That is good to hear.
