Re: Poundstretcher in old co-op site

Aggggges ago it was reported to be an Iceland. Then as you said Chris Best politely replied to a tweet I sent saying a “discount retailer” should be signed off etc within 6 weeks. At the meeting I went to last year Chris Best wouldn’t say which retailer although someone else said it was Iceland - no...

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

Agreed. Always been a fan of the coffee, atmosphere and staff generally and they do host events nights which aren’t available elsewhere nearby (eg: debate night, gaming competitions). Very glad and relieved there wasn’t anything more to it than a holiday/refurb.

Re: The Moustache

Couldn’t agree more with the above - we went a few weeks back and had some lovely wine, coffee and delicious quiche and cake and stayed longer than anticipated just enjoying the relaxing surroundings (might have just been lucky it wasn’t full of kids that day lol!)

Dragonfly yoga high street crowdfunder/project

Just thought would pop up a few things regarding the new high street yoga studio’s project. I think* (though don’t quote me on this!) that the studio will be opening in part but the ongoing not-for-profit business is looking for a boost to the project to transform the whole massive space into more f...

Re: Current state of the property market in Sydenham

I think the article probably did no harm and had some half decent pictures however the content was pretty uninspiring as I previously said and can’t imagine throngs if people are suddenly going to start looking at/coming to the area. Property prices and what people want I guess is so different for d...

Apart from inaccuracy (Alexandra cottages are in Penge and I could be wrong but if it’s where I think it is Albion villas is FH maybes?) I thought the weirdest thing was how little there was about the actual shops/events/activities. A huge proportion was taken up by the history of Sydenham which was...
