Re: Sydenham Info goes IPv6

BTW, one of the three Sydenham councillors has stepped down, so you could alter that aspect. Liam and Chris are still in post.

Re: Any news on the proposed Harris Secondary school?

I wonder if it might be hoping to locate on the Sydenham end of Coper's Cope Road/Worsley Bridge Road where there's a closed Goals place?

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

Syd, as someone who used to drive home from work via that route for many years, it was often like that on a Friday. Slightly faster through Penge, but only a bit faster. So nothing new.

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

Changes such as this were urged on councils by TFL as an emergency measure as part of the Covid-19 crisis response - see the original post for more information. There was no time for any consultation. There will be time later on, and we'll have the chance to give our views then.

It's strange that the original shop in Penge doesn't seem to attract the same comment/criticism. I wonder why?

Re: Sydenham Book Group - February

Obviously, the book group won't be able to meet for some time - certainly not in late March.
I'll post on here when we know a meeting will again be possible.
