Re: Gym Recommendations

HI Dom,
I've recently started using Better Gym at the Natiolnal Sports Centre in Crystal Palace. Very good with reasonable terms and great equipment. There are personal trainers who seem ok. Good luck!

My partner went during the Christmas holidays and describes it as very busy. Waited about an hour and a quarter. Top tip: go early in the day.

Re: Pedder SE London flyer

I do find it laughable that we're meant to turn to an estate agent for an expert view of the political future. Particularly when most serious and impartial political experts admit to not having a clue what is going to happen post Brexit. I've been closely monitoring the Sydenham housing market for t...

Re: Current state of the property market in Sydenham

I sold my house in Knighton Park Road in November 2017 for the asking price after being on the market for just a fortnight and have been renting since. I'm looking to buy again so have been monitoring the market closely. When I sold my house there was a similar property for sale on Hilmore Grove for...

Welcome to Sydenham Kate. I second Syd's suggestion. Ted is very good, always cleans up, does a very professional job and is reasonably priced.

Re: Should Mayo Road have controlled parking?

Just want to ask if a CPZ would affect parking for Mayo Vets? I use it often and usually park close by on Mayo Road, which is useful if you have sick animal.

Re: Dylon works - FT reports L&Q buying bulk for social hous

I've been inside one of the townhouses with the marvellous views. They are nice but have tiny little gardens and, to be honest, I would rather pay the same for the last house on Longton Avenue with a decent sized garden.

Re: Graffiti between Sydenham Hill station and crescent wood

I moved to Sydenham Hill in December and had no issues at any time of night. The gradient gets easier after a while and has given rise to the sport of competitive commuting! I think the graffiti gets painted over pretty quickly.

Re: Why high streets die

I wasn't aware of any Red Routes in Sydenham. Personally, I think parking works pretty well. There is no longer enforcement of the ambulance bays on Tansfeld Road and the free car park is rarely full. High rents have been blow to businesses in the past, but I note that there continue to be new openi...

Re: Helicopter over the Hillcrest estate

Thanks for being such a w@nker. It was more or less right over my house, not moving and hovering low and I was concerned that there might have been some danger to my family. But thanks to you, I'm re-assured.
