Re: Moving to Sydenham

I've lived in Sydenham (Peak Hill Gardens) for just over 6 years now and I think it's a great place. My daughter has gone to school here and loves it. The high street is a bit rough round the edges mainly due to a few boarded up shops and what appear to be abandoned buildings but it's got a great vi...

I'm looking for someone to knock through a bedroom wall in my house, into the adjacent airing cupboard, in order to convert the bedroom and airing cupboa...

Laptop disposal

Hi all

Does anyone know if the computer-recycling thing still operates from Sydenham library? Failing that, anyone got any recommendations for how to dispose of three knackered old laptops?

Ta!

Re: Mamma Dough

I've had three takeaways from Mamma Dough and it's been absolutely bangin every time. Also, I thought it was super-cheap especially for a fancy place? Bout 6 quid for a margherita? You can't argue with that!

Re: Payless, Sydenham

All I have noticed is that their bloody PayPoint machine for electricity top-up has been on the blink for months now!

They are well laid-back about it, whenever I ask if it's fixed. I admire their chilled-out approach to retailing.

Re: Lewisham nighttime economy consultation - have your say!

there's a big void where live music should be. Before anyone points this out I have indeed noticed the Golden Lion does live music, and St Barts hosts occasional classical concerts but that's not really the sort of thing i'm thinking of: I'm thinking of the singer-songwriter/jazz/soul/open-mic type...

Re: Sainsbury's Bell Green

I see rats in the areas around Bell Green every time I'm down there, most predominantly in the patches of grass and foliage by the bus stops and around the big block of flats directly in front of the Sainsbury's car park. It's certainly been this way for a few years and am v. surprised nothing appea...

Re: Begging outside Sainsbury's local

There's one guy there who's a bit full-on with his approach to asking for money - he tends to just call out "Sir! Sir!" as I'm wandering out of Sainsbury's. Other than that, I say live and let live. They're only asking for money in the same way advertisers are asking for my money. In fact I find the...

Re: Noise from Crystal Palace festival

This seems to have been going on all day. I can still hear it, even though I am a mile from the park and it is 11pm. This is really very unfair and inconsiderate. Does the music need to be so loud? It must be quite literally deafening by the stage. Whereabouts are you based? There was a VERY loud g...
