Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

I think the problems arise as the swimming pond was opened before it was properly finished and has coincided with a heatwave. At other swimming ponds in London you have to go through a gate and there are restrictions in who can swim. Maybe they should have had a separate paddling pool for toddlers o...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Let’s just not have any open water anywhere as it is dangerous. Parents are ultimately responsible for their children’s safety when swimming. Why is that a surprise?

Re: Penge Homebase closed - now Bunnings warehouse

I agree Bunnings always seems busy when I’ve been there and they must have spent a fortune on the rebranding. I guess the new owners won’t want to rebrand it yet again so it will have to go. Shame.

Re: Attention ladies: Eyebrow threading £5

There are 2 ladies (sisters I think) they are in what used to be a computer place just past the new building. They have Shabs Beauty on a small notice in the window.

Eyebrow threading

The lovely ladies ( I think they’re sisters) who used to do eyebrow threading in the little hairdressers behind the bus stop next to Angies flower shop ( if you’ve been there you’ll know it! ) have moved up the road and are now working from an old computer shop just past the new development on the h...

Re: New houses proposed

Of course housing is more important than cars, but shoehorning people into ever more cramped spaces is not what people want either, if a developer is planning four bedroomed family houses it might be circumspect to factor in some parking space /outside space in the design if I you are interested in ...

Re: New houses proposed

These plans seem to be suddenly unavailable, any idea why? As I understand, no gardens or parking for these houses, more clogging up of adjacent streets.

Re: Liveable Neighbourhood for SE26 and SE23

The play equipment in local parks is pretty dismal compared with, say, Dulwich or Greenwich Park. So definitely an area of potential improvement,

Re: Two people killed in Lennard Road

I suppose those that blame the police assume that the thief would have driven completely safely and not exceeded the speed limit if it wasnt for the police. I am not convinced by that. In the chain of causation , the blame must lie with the lowlife that stole the car and decided ( unnecessarily) to ...

So the lovely people that stole the car, refused to stop for the police, and ploughed into innocent pedestrians are completely innocent of anything? It beggars belief.

Re: Two people killed in Lennard Road

I can't believe people are blaming the police. Surely the scumbags that stole the car and then decided it was a hoot not to stop for the police are to blame. I suppose the police will be criticised as racists next ( whatever the race of the driver). So sad.

Re: Sydenham Cars SHOCKING

Uber have been very reliable for local trips, in my experience. I do like a black cab in London for an occasional treat, but they are expensive, you have to tip etc. With uber no cash changes hands which I like. It is well known black cabs don't like to venture south of the river at night.
