Re: Free loft insulation - Mark Group

They called on us last year and, while sceptical re cold callers, decided to proceed with them as they promised much deeper insulation in the loft at no cost to us. It was done without fuss and, as far as I can determine, correctly. A recent survey, including our loft, expressed concern about the bo...

Plea to Cyclists

I was harangued this evening by a cyclist who banged on my car window saying hadn't I seen him and I that I had almost run him over. This was emerging from Sainsbury's Bell Green opposite the new flats after dark. Indeed I had not seen him and I pointed out to him that there was no light on his bike...

Re: Gone - La Bonne? (Bakery)

A bit further away but the French patisserie in Ladywell (corner across from station) is excellent. Very good bread and we had a birthday cake to die for this weekend. Haven't tried the patisserie on Perry Vale near the old fire station but might be worth checking out. La Bonne Bakery we find still ...

Re: Looking for a good kitchen fitter and builder etc

We have just used two Lithuanian guys to fit a new kitchen and they were excellent. Great attention to detail. They worked long hours and were absolutely reliable. They said they also do other work, extensions, tiling etc and possibly electrics. If you are interested, please PM me. I have their busi...

Re: Casandara Shop will soon change to Sue Ryder Charity Sho

Sorry if this is slightly off topic but, with the proliferation of charity shops in the area, I wish some of them would consider also offering to sell goods for people on a 50/50 or 40/60 basis. My mother ran a charity shop in Woolwich many years ago and, as well as accepting donations, also sold go...

Re: Support your local French bakery!

We love the fruit tarts and the bread is very good. Tend to agree that croissants and pains au chocolat are on the large side but, as I don't eat either, don't have a view. My son enjoys them as well as the cookies. The shop always seems busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings and I have even seen queu...

Re: Proposed closure of Sydenham police station

I am not sure that it is relevant to the closure of the local police station, but when my son was mugged recently (punched to the ground and phone and wallet stolen) the police were at our house in under 5 minutes. They were excellent - took him round in an unmarked car and there was good follow up ...

Re: Can you recommend a laundry collection service?

Yes the dry cleaners are very good and we use them regularly. Can also recommend the laundrette just a few doors down from thee. You can give them your stuff for a service wash. It won't be ironed but it will be dried and folded. My dryer on the blink so have been glad of this service of late.

I suggest Dave for the washing machine - 020 691 7867.
Been using him for repair of domestic appliances for years but not sure if he does ovens.

Re: WHAT IF no15: House of Linens

Really sorry to hear it is closing down.

The shop was heaving so hope they find another site. Hav...

By asking people to go on Facebook you already lose a lot of potential interest. Surely there are a lot of us out there who have zero interest in joining Facebook!

Re: new shop

As we have lost Provender it would be really nice to have a deli/cafe type place. Good bread would be nice and perhaps also selling good/interesting kitchen stuff à la Habitat. There's a range at Sainsbury's but I was thinking more along the lines of the kitchen shop in Blackheath. Interesting gifts...
