Re: Shooting in the high street this afternoon

Think there is still a lot of unknowns/conjecture around what happened with quite varied bits of info but it does appear the person shot thrmself - (eg: I have read that a shot ricocheted off a car and back but another report says people left the car and the person used the butt of the gun to try an...

Re: What's happened to the Crooked Billet?

Closed for a few weeks for refurbishment. Rumour has it it has been taken over by the same chain “craft union” that own the Pawleyne Arms round the corner and recently acquired the Hill in FH. If this is true then expect cheap drinks, Tv screens for sports etc. Seems to be a running theme at the mom...

Re: Cox's Walk footbridge

If the info on the petition site is true it appears essentially: 1. The trees don’t need to be felled for the works to be done 2. The trees aren’t the cause of the damage to the bridge/works that need to be done and therefore again don’t need to be removed as a necessity Obviously there will be incr...

Club Naija Dinner Club (Nigerian food) at Ignition Taproom

Popped into Ignition this eve and on top of the scotch eggs and brownies produced by Club Naija I noticed information regarding a Sunday dinner club that is kicking off this week I believe. Details copied from the flyer below: Club Naija: Modern Nigerian food and supper clubs Experience the colours,...

Re: Planning Watch [w/b 19/08/2019] inc new flats 154 Sydenham Road

Just going back a little I noticed an application on the large empty double unit opposite puregym from July. The application is for a change of use from retail to restaurant. Any ideas if there is something being planned or more the owner is changing use in the hope someone will take it on as a rest...

Shout out/events at Sydenham library

Maybe I’m missing something but it feels as if the library doesn’t have the most prominent social media presence so thought I’d big up the work by the volunteers and the events that take place. PLEASE BE AWARE the following are all copied off the website and I’m not entirely sure how up to date it i...

Recommend a garage for MOT?

As the title says - anyone used Sydenham Autos on Newlands Park? (Prob just about closest one for us) Any recommendations nearby would be great.

Cheers.

Re: Development of Beckenham Place Park

Not making a comment on BPP / Funding etc. But just thought I’d mention that it appears as if the map has some sort of glitch so hopefully the info you are looking at/talking about is correct for what you want to say rather than deprivations scales being inaccurate! The bit I’m looking at in particu...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

All I think is that it’s pretty despicable behaviour on all accounts and I find it highly highly suspicious that 1. CB gets caught out lying directly to members of the forum 2. Is caught making up a fake account to use to his own benefit, something he has been repeatedly accused of in the past. 3. T...

Re: Bingo and bikes in Sydenham

It’s pretty much the polar opposite of what was rumoured to happen - a laser quest / escape room! I’ve always maintained that as long as a place has plans for something new or different to what’s currently on offer (although a few of the same type of thing can be good for variety and competition) an...

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

Hopefully it’s okay to bump this up- Just a reminder that cherry and ice have recently started up a weekly art club on Thursdays 7-9 and am sure they would appreciate people giving it a whirl (whilst enjoying their refurb and delicious drinks) and people spreading the word.

This Thursday (27.06) Beer and burger @ Alexandra Nurseries

Just thought I’d just flag up that Alexandra Nurseries in Penge (parish lane, opposite The Alexandra pub) are doing another beer and burger afternoon/evening as supplied by the local Southey Brewery.

Beer, burgers, the cafe and shop are all open until 9pm.

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...
