Re: Replacement for Penge Lidl

Rumour had it (Penge tourist board) that the owners of PFC were planning to move in there so whether it is true and they are moving out to the bigger unit, keeping the old one and having something different here or the rumours aren’t true and it’s completely separate who knows!

Re: Any news on the proposed Harris Secondary school?

This implies they have yet to find/sign off on a location though the plan for a “Sydenham” Harris is a still a go: https://www.harrisfederation.org.uk/176/future-academies/project/48/harris-academy-sydenham As it’s Bromley council who have agreed I assume that means it’ll be located in Bromley but b...

Re: Dangerous e-scooters in Sydenham

Yep, have seen people whizzing around without too much safety concerns unfortunately. Additionally though it’s not just the people on scooters, I’ve seen a big increase in people on bikes cycling on pavements or on roads unsafely as well as people crossing roads at the most idiotic places and times ...

Re: Refurbishment of Billings in September

Thought I’d take the opportunity to ask as I was in this morning - there won’t be anyone there and it’s a pretty major refurb mostly of the back of the shop (new kitchen, toilets etc) so extremely doubtful any service will be available during that time. Fingers crossed the refurb goes to plan and it...

Re: Good Food is coming to Sydenham

Hey Parker1970 (and any others!) although maybe generally lacking in London - perhaps more so due to lack of advertising? than actual places - there are actually a few not too* far from Sydenham - although be aware produce and prices do vary! Here is a list: Beetroot and Beans - Forest Hill Roots an...

Re: Local eateries

Nearly all coffee shops are open still with some having put in place self-imposes restrictions (eg: SE20 cycles who have a small coffee shop inside have a locked door policy and you need to knock to come in essentially limiting numbers). Some are also online eg: Cobbs Corner are on Ubereats Bottle s...

New shops on Kirkdale

Two new shops open/opening that I thought I’d flag up in case people don’t commonly head that way: - Icy Cakes 🧁 is open as of today and specialises in cupcakes, traybakes, cakes and also have a small selection other things on the menu (eg: patties, sandwiches). Only a small place so more takeaway t...

Re: New shop opening?

Apologies - somehow missed that in the thread - I guess there may be the possibility that the whole area is “number 56” and the shop may still stand as a shop (being as you have not seen a change in use and the residence may just be the area behind the shop)

Re: New shop opening?

No idea but would be good/nice to know! A small restaurant I think would work perfectly on the high street - wishful thinking but a small Thai, Tapas, Mexican or other would be amazing. The corner St Christopher’s and the large double unit opposite Pure Gym both have change of license applications (...

Re: Sydenham Estate agents

We used property world twice - to initially buy into Sydenham and then to sell our old place and to get a larger place. In the end they were very honest with us and the place we wanted to buy which they had on the market didn’t work out because the person (after a while) they said wasn’t mentally re...
