Re: Broken window theory

Thought this was yet more roadworks until I looked a little closer. No hole. It would appear some local flytipper has gifted Lawrie Park Gardens this present for Christmas. Lewisham Council Taxpayers will have to pay to get it carted away. https://social.brainsys.com/system/media_attachments/files/...

Re: Broken window theory

Afternoon all,

I thought I’d share a few small wins. Since my zero tolerance stance to mess begun my neighbours are bringing their bins in and the council trimmed a massive hedge that hadn’t been touched for years!!

Re: Broken window theory

Syd that’s kind of inspiring and well done . I sometimes think we suffer from a kind of Imposter Syndrome in that we feel we don’t deserve those nice things like planters and arty bollards. Let’s face it we don’t deserve knife crime but we get that . Good luck with your planters . Cheers Nigel. I r...

UPDATE

“Summer Flu”

Hi all, just checking is anyone has noticed an increase in people with “summer flu”?

There is a new variant which may be as transmissible as omicron but as problematic as Delta. I’m in a high risk category so I’ve changed my behaviour drastically since 2020 and I’m considering masking again

Broken window theory

Hi all, Ive decided to take a broken window approach to my road and Im starting by asking the council to fix a leaning road sign and ensure my neighbours bring their bins in via fix my street.

Re: Sydenham Tyres

Sydenham Tyres has been taken over by a new business, and they seem really nice. The previous crew left when the building had to be substantially rebuilt, on the orders of Building Control.
