Re: Sydenham Community Radio

I was thinking the same as I was involved at the start of the Sydenham Community Radio project. It really never got off the ground mainly due to funding I believe. It would be great to start one up again as I still have some contacts in the Community Broadcasting arena. The one main issue is finding...

Furniture Upholsterer

Hi All!

Does anyone know how to contact the furniture upholsterer at 291 Sydenham Road?

Everytime I go past it, it is closed and I have seen something in the window that I would like to enquire about.

Many Thanks

Re: Two Helicopters?

From my viewpoint they were both news gathering helicopters, the police one is blue with a yellow top and it has a twin tail fin. Also the police use a Eurocopter EC145 and these certainly didn't look like one of those.

Re: Ignition Brewey needs our help!

I do hope that our new pub, The Greyhound, which has just won a Time Out Local Award put some of their beer on tap.

I am sure it will be a seller providing they promote the ethos behind the brewery and the beer. I shall be donating to the crowdfunding project.

Re: Been to The Greyhound yet?

I agree that the Greyhound is still finding its feet. The new bay windows look good and bring in much more light. As for food, we've given up unless we book a table 6 months in advance (Easyjet style) and then to be prepared to wait for hours. What they should do is this, if the kitchen can easily c...

Re: Lewisham wide 20mph roads

I just thought the council had a load of spare white paint to get rid of. Just like when they have a load of concrete and mini-roundabouts spring up in unexpected places.

The big question is if you manage to drive faster than 20mph in London then you are doing well.

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

I mentioned about making a community pub many moons ago but it was ignored. I have mentioned it to a few of the local micro-breweries aka Gypsy Hill about them getting together and buying it. So if anyone has a closer relationship with any of them perhaps they could mention it again. It would be a g...

Re: Changing the speed limit

I just thought that Lewisham had a job lot of white paint they wanted to get rid off. Also the speed down the High Street cannot be more than 20mph anyway. A bit like those mini-roundabouts that spring up. I can just imagine the conversation: Worker 1: "Well, that was a good job done. What are we go...

Re: What happened to the so-called Piaza

I just thought that it might have been redeveloped as part of the High Street regeneration.

Now, we just have a vacant piece of land with hoardings that have seen better days. It would be good to see it as a small market square instead of the small piaza opposite the railway station.

What happened to the so-called Piaza

I was wondering after the redevelopment of the High Street there were plans for a small piaza between Paperchase Taxation and the Shirin Cafe. So what's happened?

It is one of the eyesores on the high street and it would be a great place for the Farmers Market and other pop up events.

Re: Windmill Victory

When I read the latest 'What's Brewing' and saw that 'The Windmill' has been listed as an ACV (Asset of Community Value) my first question was 'Why?'. It wasn't a good pub to start with considering that Foxes and the Bricklayers Arms are close by. I went in there once and walked straight out again n...

I was thinking of starting a British Cycling affiliated club for Sydenham (Sydenham Cycle Club). Currently there are only two of us who do a regular Sunday morning ride out to West Wickham and back. We start at 8am and are therefore back by 9am which leaves all of Sunday free to do what you want. It...

Thank You to Billings

I am sure like many of you would like to thank Billings for all their efforts in the run up to Christmas.

We ordered one of their three bird roasts and it was delicous so a massive thumbs up to them. Also their Christmas Sausages were lovely and if you are a pork pie lover, try theirs.

Blocked Zebra Crossings

As we are in the mood to moan at the congested traffic through Sydenham I would also like to have a go at drivers who seem to have got their license by collecting tokens from cereal packets. During the evening rush hour no one seems to recognise the zebra crossings at Kirkdale and Westwood Hill as m...
