- Topic: Girton Road car park - introduction of parking charges
- Replies: 3

Just noticed in the latest email from the Sydenham Society that Lewisham Council is planning to introduce parking charges for the Girton Road car park. If this is done without the corresponding introduction of a CPZ on the surrounding streets, the already extreme difficulties that residents face in ...
I guess the fact there are so many 'worst journeys' that have been offered up here only serves to demonstrate how well provided for we are when it comes to public transport
I guess it depends whether you are closer to the Sydenham or Penge end of those roads, but there are quite a few children from those roads at Kelvin Grove - with three-form entry it has quite a large catchment. Also, each year at least one or two local schools take a bulge class to accommodate incre...
Raffaele's has high chairs and is very welcoming of children, but not sure if they're open at lunchtimes... Think the Golden Lion has high chairs too, as does the Dolphin. For all their unfriendly-sounding notices about children, the Dolphin were actually great when we took our two plus their baby c...
We have a lovely Spanish au pair joining our family in a couple of weeks' time. Does anyone know of any local au pair networks - or just have an au pair themselves that we could introduce her to - that we can connect her with to help her settle in and make friends?
And a few facts on the EU's democratic deficit for the Brexiters while I'm at it. No, it's not perfect, but show me a political system that is. There are three political institutions in the EU - the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers. The Commission: basically the civil...
There is a great quote from a Telegraph article earlier this week: "There is no conceivable form of Brexit that will simultaneously avoid a UK recession, is acceptable to Leave voters, and be agreed by every one of the 27 EU nations in possession of a veto - there's just no way of making those circl...
You definitely get more square feet for your money in Sydenham than Forest Hill or Honor Oak Park. Also, there is a better range of good quality family housing within your five-minute station radius in Sydenham than in FH. I've not felt unsafe walking home from the station (or pub) in Sydenham, but ...
Would echo the praise of the other posters. Having heard of the shop via the school grapevine, we popped in on Saturday for new shoes for both our one year old and our four year old and were very impressed. Dorothy (hope I've remembered her name correctly!) really knows her stuff and clearly cares t...
Not had an au-pair before but a friend of mine who is a secondary school English teacher in Austria had a student that she rates highly who was looking for a summer au-pair job in London. I can find out if she's still looking, if you're interested?

There's one on Jews Walk that my friend's daughter went to that she was happy with. Townsend Montessori and Rub-a-Dubs, both in Forest Hill, are also good.
You can find out the furthest distance of the last child accepted to each school last year on the Lewisham council website - obviously changes each year depending on volume of applications, but it gives you an idea, as you look at houses, which schools you'd be likely to get into from there. To be h...
Ours go to Townsend Montessori in Forest Hill and we're very happy with it. Not the closest but it has lovely outside space and a great pre-school room. It's only a 5-minute walk from Forest Hill station so an easy enough onward commute once you've dropped them off. Think the waiting list is quite l...

Some friends and friends of friends all with children starting reception at Kelvin Grove in September are getting together for a picnic in Mayow Park on Saturday 12th July, 12.30pm, so the children can get to know each other a bit before school starts. We'll be meeting the Mayow Road side of the cri...
Checked it out today. Looks great, the coffee's great and the cakes are delicious - I had a chocolate and raspberry tart; parents both had the chocolate & honey cake. Great addition to Sydenham. Just wish it was a bit closer to my end of the 'hood!
