Re: Barclays closing in October

I'm annoyed by this, but mainly because I never wanted to be a Barclays customer in the first place. I was a member of the Woolwich, which had the branch until demutualisation 1997. Barclays said at the time that they bought the Woolwich for its brilliant customer service, then promptly closed on th...

Re: Sydenham Grand Prix

I saw a bloke on a very noisy, small green motorbike, very fast down Lennard Road earlier tonight. Appeared to be ridden by a middle aged white guy in a grey hoody with no helmet. He was bald and had mad staring eyes. I think he was on something, other than the small green motorbike.
Stay safe

Here for Good (Forest Hill Community Church) used to host a Christmas Lunch for the homeless on the day. They could perhaps do with some help.

Crash on Sydenham Road

Looks as if there was a very serious accident at the junction of Newlands Park and Sydenham Road. I say accident but there only appears to be once car involved and it looks burned out? When I drove past at 2.45 the car was surrounded by police tape. Does anyone know what happened? I think it was a B...

Re: Recommend a garage for MOT?

Any Volvo owners would do well to use Dundalk Motors in Brockley. Good work at a fraction of the cost of a Volvo dealer. Knighton Motors for non-specialist and MOTs.

Re: Planning Watch [w/b 03/06/2019]

How much yoga does Sydenham need? There's the Dragonfly place, the Sydenham Centre and now this place. Wasn't there talk of the old Ladbrokes (now St Christopher's furniture shop) being a yoga studio. I guess there may be demand and Sydenham is going to be full of fit and flexible people.

Re: Do not use this section for Wanted or Offer requests

Ok thanks for that. Its clear now that if I said "where is the best place to get my feet treated?" it would have stayed in the Café.

Re: Do not use this section for Wanted or Offer requests

So what is the difference between wanting to know the best chiropodist and wanting to know who provides the best breakfast? One is wanted and the other in the café.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good chiropodist please? I know there are few about but would like to hear of any particularly good ones. Thanks in advance.

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...
