NB There is also an important, if out of area, application for an 89 bed hotel on the site of the petrol station/co-op store on the South Circ just under the bridge from Forest Hill Station.

Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

Buses are actually the main cause of injury/death to cyclist, but of course TFL will not release that figure. Every cyclist death in London is well publicised - by the Evening Standard for a start. A friend of mine collected the statistics for a time. It's now out of date (as he returned to Germany...

Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

JGD - I understand your pain but the statistics are not with you. When you have time do examine the details of each and every London's cyclist fatality. You will also see that the real problem is not HGVs in general but concentrated on a section of HGVs - primarily in the construction sector who are...

Property is Theft

Just came across this long and informative article on the enclosure of common land in Sydenham over nearly 300 years.

Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

Sad fact: HGV's constitute 4% of traffic but are involved in over 60% of cycling deaths in London.

Re: What’s going on at x?

If you can’t tell I think the “conservation area” doesn’t really exist and only comes into play when the powers that be feel strongly enough about something and then use it as they wish. We don’t live in some idyllic village with things of true historical value and the need for things to “Keep in l...

Re: Zanzibar on Judge Rinder

Good to hear from you Alib. How's it going?

Re Judge Rinder - I tried to Google the episode but according to the ITV guide there wasn't a show until 9.25 which appears to be about something else. Can you clarify? https://www.itv.com/hub/tv-guide

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Considering every single person I spoke to during the Flava Baker debacle had suspicions around ForestHull - at worst a CB sock puppet, at best a CB handmaiden - I don't think this appointment will instil much confidence in those seeking a neutral, CB-free forum. But then, I'm not sure anyone reall...

Starman - just spotted ForestHull has been added to the SE23.life Mod Team.
Congratulations/commiserations as appropriate ForestHull. Hopefully as a member of this forum you will be in a good position to tell us when it is safe to return.

Living in hope,

Re: PX56 GFV Car Thieves' registration number

Is there a valid defence if you accidentally run over the b*ggers legs as they stick out from the car they are stealing from? If one factors in the cost to the NHS - then no. Merely removing shoes and socks* should give them a suficiently painful and embarrasing memory of their failed exploit as th...

Got a call from my daughter in Forest Hill today to say her catalytic converter had been nicked. 2004 Honda Jazz so the insurance company doesn't want to pay for replacement - but write it off.

Yes Rachael. His does block to no discernable effect except to highlight his spiteful nature. He even blocks this website from his own. So much for community spirit. But there you go.

Checking here: https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/ PX56 GFV is indeed a blue Vauxhall taxed and MOTed. Surely they wouldn't be so silly as to use their own car? But who can tell. But don't be surprised if it is stolen or re-plated. Guess you have the police on the job. They may appreciate a visua...
