Dead Cat on Kirkdale

I was just in traffic heading down Kirkdale to Cobbs Corner and saw a white cat lying on the pavement (outside No 200). I pulled over to have a look as the scene looked weird - the white cat lying on its side and a holdall on the wall next to it. I went to look and sadly the cat is definitely dead. ...

Re: Begging around Sainsburys Local

This sounds like the same guy who is often at Sainsburys and now Aldi. His common requests are money for a hostel, money to get a ticket to visit someone in hospital and money for petrol (not asked for that recently though). I see him practically everywhere I go in Sydenham.

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...
