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

Really? Wow. I mean I’ve been stuck coming down there before, but never nearly for so long. I was there the other night on a Thursday having dropped one of my kids in Dulwich and had the same issue. Not quite as long, but a pretty tedious journey. Wasn’t aware it was isolated to Fridays or that it t...

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

This may have come up in another post somewhere, but I was driving home from other side of town on Friday, and it took me 47mins to get from the top of Westwood Hill to the bottom of the high st. Extraordinary. There is no question that I could have hopped quicker. (Before someone says I could walk,...

Re: Flu-Jabs @ Sydenham Green now Covid test compatible

Sydenham Green is a total abomination frankly. It’s always been like that. Ring up in the morning for an appointment, stay on hold, get met with a terse tone from receptionist saying no appointments. We’ve been registered with it for about 12 years, and it’s always been dreadful. It’s consistent, th...

Re: Barclays closing in October

I'm annoyed by this, but mainly because I never wanted to be a Barclays customer in the first place. I was a member of the Woolwich, which had the branch until demutualisation 1997. Barclays said at the time that they bought the Woolwich for its brilliant customer service, then promptly closed on t...

Where is our 'voice of the neighbourhood'...The Sydenham Society?

Very surprised they haven't made any comments about this, for or against, unless I've missed something?
Are you going to name the councillor(s) you say live there?

So the suggestion is that Cllr Best has lobbied for this?
Or do other cllrs live there too?

Seems the location of Cllr Best’s house would be irrelevant given she lives on the periphery by Mayow, and in fact detrimental.

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. This reminds me of ...

Re: Sydenham Grand Prix

Seemed like there were bike races going on again tonight.

I can hear some serious engine noise. Not entirely sure where about it is, but pretty loud!

I assume it will require someone to have a serious accident before the police do something.

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

The road is now closed. This seems so arbitrary and spontaneous. Perhaps it will lower the amount of traffic on the road that a local counseller lives on? I have also noticed that the man who was running his car repair business on Bishopsthorpe and Silverdale has begun to leave loads of cars and va...

I haven’t noticed any difference between Penge and Sydenham. Also haven’t noticed that people are oblivious in Sydenham to it! Seems to me people are avoiding each other in a sensible manner.

Re: Sydenham Grand Prix

I’ve seen a group of quad bikers gathered by the Clarke’s bus depot by Lower Sydenham recently. They use that stretch of road to rev and test their bikes it seems. Properly noisy. Not sure the police give a monkey’s though, or more likely they can’t really afford the time to collar them.

Activity in old Coop

In other news...quite a lot of activity in the old Coop yesterday. Some guys drilling some piles into the floor to see what the foundation depth was.
The guys didn’t seem to know what was going on, but movement nonetheless.

Re: Black cabbies in celebration.....

Tbh, I would rarely use a cab to go into London, so the main reason is to come home.
Also, the majority of Uber vehicles are hybrid, which can’t be said for black cabs.

Uber needs to change a few things, but it is defo a thing for good for me, and I would have less in my pocket as a result
