Re: Help! Byne Road - schools catchment?

45 minutes!! Wow ok, thank you for the info, I will definitely use the 6 now. Oh another resource I've found quite handy is actually the Rightmove website. If you find something for sale/rent in your road or very close by and select the "School Checker", you have yourself a handy chart of local scho...

Re: Syds vintage clothes shop closing

I've got to agree that an empty shop would be preferable. The sign alone will make innocent passers-by want to remove their eyeballs :shock:

Re: Syds vintage clothes shop closing

New sign going up at the shop opposite The Woodman/Wooster & Stock today- "Cash Brothers Consortium". I hope I'm wrong, but it looks like a Money Lender place.

Re: Syds vintage clothes shop closing

I came here to post about this too. Looks really exciting! I love the giant antique teddy in the window. Love the idea of Kirkdale becoming a hive of little curio and antique shops like this. The costume hire shop, Behind The Boxes, now the antique toy shop- it's rare to find little places like this...

First Birthday Party Venue

Hi All, I'm pretty new to the area and was wondering if anyone could suggest any venues for a 1st birthday party. I'm not looking for a giant ball pit and juggling clowns, just a hall or nice pub venue for 20 or so adults and a couple of very small tots. Any recommendations would be most appreciated!

Re: POLICE APPEAL: Incident on Sydenham Park Road 11th March

It's extremely worrying. We have recently brought a place in Sydenham and are moving to the area soon with our young son. Of course, these sorts of horrible things can happen anywhere but I can't help but worry about our decision now :cry:
