Re: Notice of Silverdale traffic restriction from 29 Jul

Will great sadness, they are beginning to fill the hole and it looks like the road will reopen tomorrow... Maybe it's time to start a campaign for some traffic calming measures along this road (other than the useless bumps), the closure has highlighted the insane way people drive along here. Anyone ...

Re: Notice of Silverdale traffic restriction from 29 Jul

It's closed for Thames Water works, something to do with a leak. According to the Thames Water website this is due to be completed on the 31st. Until then, it's lovely and quiet, except for the moped drivers driving on the pavement...

Re: "Zanzibar" Party last night??

Something along the lines of them not being able to find a club to hire so they broke in to Zanzibar and had a rave...police couldn't do anything because I think they claimed squatters rights or something! Apparently there were up to 500 people there! Overheard all of this in the gym this morning......

The festival and music stopped at 9pm so I think the music must be coming from somewhere else I'm afraid!

Re: More Trees for Sydenham High Street - can you help?

This is an awesome idea! More trees would make the high street so much better! Unfortunately I don't have time next week for leafleting but I'll be keeping an eye out for other opportunities to get involved!! Crowd funding is a brilliant idea!

Re: Waste Collection

It amazes me that they managed to do it pretty well every week, but they can't manage to fit everyone in every other week.... I finally had an email from another person at the council, potentially the refuse manager, who basically said they are trying to provide a good service but there have a been ...

Re: Waste Collection

Just wondering if anyone else is still having issues with black bin collection? We're on Silverdale and have been missed every single week, until last week they had missed us on Tuesday and then collected (after an email to the council) on Wednesday morning, but last week no collection and e-mailing...

Re: Waste Collection

None of our bins were collected today either. Lewisham Council, via Twitter, said to e-mail envirocasework@lewisham.gov.uk with my request and address to get the collection made. I suggest others do the same. They've clearly got confused by their own schedule.....

Car break in

Just wanted to make everyone aware that there have been a spate of car break-ins in the local area. Mine was just done this afternoon in broad daylight in my driveway on Silverdale near the station (in the last two hours so if anyone saw anything, let me know!) and I know of at least one other in th...

Re: Has your stop water valve been painted white? Here's why

I wondered about this as mine has been marked white and there are some clearly marked pipes across the end of the drive too. Was worried it could have been some sort of 'tagging' so contacted Thames Water who had no idea so it's interesting to know what it might be! I'll look out for a letter explai...

Re: Sydenham vs Forest Hill

I live down Silverdale and have never felt unsafe walking home at night from the station or the 176 - obviously you have to be aware of your surroundings and who is walking near you but that goes for anyone walking anywhere after dark. We have the lovely Mayow Park and are also close enough to use C...

Re: Parking problems

Residents parking? Unless Lewisham own the building that is a private issue: take it up with your freeholder Unfortunately we seem to have found ourselves in an area that has been largely sold off from the council and so Lewisham Homes now claim it isn't their responsibility, and Lewisham Council c...

Re: Parking problems

I would absolutely support a CPZ covering Sydenham. In fact, I've previously requested the council put one in on the residents parking area outside my house on Silverdale...which many commuters think is a station car park! The council didn't bother to respond, in fact they were surprised someone was...

Re: Double Glazers Sydenham

I used Gilham and Gilham. They're not local but they cover the area and Glen, who owns the company, is incredibly knowledgeable. Not a pushy salesman in sight!!
