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

I think initially both “more yoga” and “dragonfly yoga” were looking at/hoping to open in Sydenham and you are right, the corner site with the old ladbrokes/current short-term (?) St.Christophers was a site one had in mind. Due to a number of things this didn’t get sorted in time and St.Christophers...

Re: Ignition Brewey needs our help!

Just thought I’d pop on here that although not the most glamorous of outdoor spaces Nick from Ignition let me know that they are planning to have some outdoor seating soon. Lovely pint of their cucumber/celery guest beer (which is much nicer than it may sound) in the sun and people watching yes plea...

Re: Moving to Sydenham

Where boundaries lie you could very easily squish any two areas together and that is the case for everywhere I would argue. People will say where they live based on what they think makes their place sound nicer, “than cooler” or more valuable etc not necessarily what area it is actually in or it’s n...

Re: Refurb at the station / bye bye turdis

Only had a quick read of the poster on the way in this morning but I thought implied it was closed for good (in which case I can’t see the point of the unit staying there!). Might have read it wrong and they are refurbishing it/moving it or whatnot and agree without toilets at stations these things ...

Re: Bottle Cave

Just wanted to give a shout out to Bottlecave and the young man who seems to be staffing it regularly at present. A really lovely and knowledgable chat every time I go in and his knowledge appears to expand across the range of beers/ales/stouts (as sort of hoped/expected) but also across the wine/bu...

Re: Moving to Sydenham

Right - to get back on topic.. I’ve already had my wee say generally about living here but just to give some stats on crime (as it’s something spoken about by quite a few people here) rather than subjective hearsay (including my own as I did admittedly say from personal experience). The following ar...

Re: What's up with Cherry and Ice??

Not sure but I passed a few days ago and the signs have changed and now say they are finishing up the final touches (assume a refurb of sorts has taken place) and are open in a week - not sure how long those signs have been up for so possibly reopening this weekend?..

Re: Kent House Leisure Gardens Open Day

I’d recommend going even if only to get fresh local honey. Absolutely delicious stuff with different flavours from different local beekeepers (including the ones based there). Apparently good for hayfever if a sufferer and looking for potential aids!

Re: Moving to Sydenham

Good luck on the potential move! Echoing everyone else really - been between FH and Syd for 3.5 years and now been between Penge and Syd for 2 years. Never felt unsafe in the area. Unfortunately every area will have various elements of crime which may or may not be reported on depending on various t...

Re: Trees at the back of Fairlawn Park

I have a similar thing with pretty much the largest/highest tree I’ve ever seen at the back of the garden almost directly behind ours therefore very close to our/neighbours back fence. It’s a large house split into flats I think. Due to the position of the sun it only blocks out sun for a few hours ...
