Re: Sydenham Post Office to close for refurbishment

If WHSmith didn’t have such a dowdy approach to retail they might have been a company with the foresight and ability to make a profit in that space. Downham, Bromley Rd Post Office has a Subway sandwich shop and an off licence! It is not operated by WH Smith. I know, that’s my point. They were supp...

Oasis is already there, and has been for a long while now, it’s along the wall and before you get to the empty space in the corner. Also, is...

Re: Bell Green Urban Renewal Plan

Unless and until something is done to sort out the road layout Bell Green (formerly Sydenham Green) will remain a polluted nightmare of a location. The traffic issues are solvable without restricting access. Unfortunately you have local narrow minded politicians in the way. IS there really that muc...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

You wont lose the Hayes line. The tube will run on the same tracks (making the extension easier than other options), and be more frequent. I am unsure where it would be diverted? The Hayes line is already at full capacity so adding some Bakerloo trains means losing some of the current services. The...

Re: Payless, Sydenham

I wonder if this is an issue for reporting to the Environmental Health Department as it concerns food. Also if food is rotting outside the premises it will attract rats. I was going to suggest similar when looking at this thread before. The Food Standards Agency gave it a hygiene rating of 2, back ...

Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

Just to give another example: The Nando’s - Great addition to the area in place of a large empty shop. Great addition in terms of a different dining experience (not too similar to anything else in Sydenham) catering for different people - I.e: family dining, teenagers or younger people which Sydenh...

Re: New aldi

I thought Sainsbury’s owned the Toys R Us site and therefore would not entertain the idea of letting a fellow grocer open there. At least that’s what was bandied about on here not so long ago.

The Aldi drawings above would suggest that is no longer true, if it was before.

Re: Mama Dough

Now that Nando’s is open, I thought I’d start a separate thread for any news on Mama Dough. There was no indication of works starting when I walked by earlier. Does anyone have any insight? For a start, can we update the actual name of this thread to ‘Mamma Dough’ which is how the restaurant chain ...
