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.

Re: Ignition brewery events next week

The blurb for Pride is below but the other two were mentioned to me informally by bar staff as I was leaving yesterday - can’t find anything online afraid On Friday 5th July, Ignition welcomes LGBTQI+ people and their Allies to our pre-Pride party! DJ, raffle, rainbows and team Ignition! The perfect...

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...

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 ...

Right - to get back on topic..
