Re: Moving to Sydenham

As far as crime figures are concerned, I think they lack the nuance to indicate whether you personally are likely to be a victim of or personally affected by a crime. Rates can be relatively high where you live, but you might be statistically unlikely to be a victim, based on your occupation, where ...

Re: Sydenham - community activity ?

That’s okay, JGD. I don’t as a rule post anything behind closed doors that I wouldn’t say in public, so the consequences are mine to take. I tend to treat unsolicited PMs the way I do cold callers. ;-) I take Stuart’s point about no making unnecessary trouble for the admin here. As VB is no longer a...

Understood, topofthehill. My reply was by way of adding context in terms of how you might assess whether you had been lied to or not. Of course we might all be talking about different people.

Re: Sydenham - community activity ?

Does anyone have actual proof of these allegations? At a very well attended and convivial social meet up of se23.life forum members last week the person in question told me in a private conversation that he is not LP. He was not even aware of these recent posts. I also have proof of the person in q...

Re: What's happened to SEE3?

Their twitter account is still very active. Lots of RTs and their last stand alone tweet was promoting the Easter Bonnet making event.

Re: where are our closest bluebell woods??

You’ve just missed the peak of the bluebells in Beckenham Place Park woods, but they were spectacular. Best last week of April, usually. As part of the restoration of the woods, a lot of invasive ground cover was cleared late this winter, which should allow for an even bigger carpet of bluebells nex...

Re: Best Breakfast in Sydenham

Going to agree with you on the beans, Parker1970. Always bought Heinz beans, but noticed recently they were getting more and more insipid. Tried Branson beans based on a taste test I saw somewhere and they are DELICIOUS and the way I remember Heinz used to be.

Thank you, Supreme, for responding here. I look forward to hearing good reports on your cod soon. (Keep it skinless and you’ll almost certain have my business!)

No one has done anything wrong here. They have reported their actual experience. Ever heard of reviews? Same thing. It’s not gossip or tittle-tattle.

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

If they are passing off a cheap fish as cod, perhaps it needs to be reported? There’s the possibility of a public health risk there, i think. I’m so sad to read this - we’ve been getting our fish there for more than ten years. It was alway fresh, tasty and HUGE. One way to start a vicious rumour an...

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

The one at Penge East station has long been recommended around here. The problem for us is that my OH can’t abide skin on battered fish (it’s not something we’ve come across anywhere outside London). Supreme was the only place we found that did skinless battered fish. 🙁

Re: Bell Green - A New Plan, January 2019

Given how long the gasholders have been under threat of demolition, I wonder why this plan is only appearing now? I mean, it’s been YEARS. I am neutral about whether the gasholders stay or go, btw. I just find the timing of this interesting. Is it the new players in the game - Discourse Architecture...

Re: New ikea coming to Greenwich

Because they make everyone's house look like James Bond's ski lodge. You say that like it’s a bad thing. Are you perhaps unaware than ‘Mid-century vintage’ is all the rage in interiors right now? I was watching North By Northwest at the weekend and positively lusting after the villian’s lodge on Mo...

Prosilver is much more to my taste - although am I remembering correctly that the board was blue before it was grey?? Anyway, I’m happy to stick to the Prosilver.

Re: The New Look Forum

I’ve posted a more detailed response in the Asylum, but yes, the header and a few other small details need finessing, in my opinion. I don’t know how much flexibility there is in the forum software, but these are all things that I’ve been able to implement easily on my own website.

Re: Who chose

Froma purely aesthetic point of view, I’d say using two shades of yellow from different ‘warmth’ families is very jarring. I think the cool lemon for the main body is fine, but you might want to rethink the banana yellow as the accent and header colour. I’d suggest looking at the icon photo and taki...

Re: Our Lady & St Philip Neri Infants Building for Sale

Gosh, this makes me sad. Both my kids went there. It is the most wonderful purpose built infant school, everything scaled down for little ones. And I live in earshot if the playground. I’ll miss the sound of the handbell ringing at the end of break. It’s a sizeable site, I assume it will be develope...
