Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Yep, and when I suggested I'd lost trust I got what I felt was quite an aggressive reply. As if CB was forced into his actions, as opposed to choosing to behave like that :roll:

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Agreed. Fake Twitter ID is one thing, and if what he says is true then it's understandable, but all the selected follows then promoting it all over the .life site to give it credence makes it look much more like a calculated move.

Ha, SE23 is of course weirder than SE26 :wink: , but I meant something set up to try and catch out another person rather than the romantic side!

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

This current business strikes me as having an element of catfishing to it, although the whole thing is an absolute mess. There appears to be an element of "if you're not with us, you're against us" which makes it all rather unpleasant. As for names - these are my real initials, but I don't think tha...

Re: Knighton Park Road

It's also good to have more stuff down towards that end of Sydenham Road! I'm not really a Yoga fan myself but it's a big appeal for a lot of people and will encourage footfall.

Garden Wall Replacement

We'd like to replace the (rather battered) fence at the side of our front garden with a wall. Can anyone recommend someone to do it - presumably a builder, rather than a gardener?

Re: Moving to Sydenham

I'd be interested in a drinks event - it would be great to meet some more people in the area! Due to working in central London and having non-local things on several evenings a week, that's one thing we've not managed to do as much of as we'd like :D

Re: Moving to Sydenham

Everywhere has changed since the 1980s - it was 30 years ago :roll: . 2lai it's a nice area to live, although I can't speak for Hazel Grove specifically. A different feel to Peckham, but not in a bad way - both places have their own character. As I said, we are very happy here! I'd like to see the e...

Re: Moving to Sydenham

We've been here 3 years, a few streets away from Hazel Grove. We really like it! Absolutely no worries about safety, and there's a good range of shops on the high street. Also we love the Poodle Club, even though we don't manage to go as often as we plan to. Dom's already mentioned that it's well co...

Re: Sydenham - community activity ?

The whole thing is a little depressing, from the POV of someone who is merely an observer. It's just so ridiculous - forum wars are really unhelpful for all concerned! (For the record, I don't think anyone on STF is actively trying to be involved in one) Anyway, in the three years I've lived in the ...

Re: Bell Green Gas Holders - Proposal to Demolish in April 2018.

Socially affordable housing I think will have significant merit on this site - but not everyone will agree and this matter needs the community to be fully engaged in public consultation. I'd be pleased to see this, but only as part of a plan which actually looks at the area holistically (that goes ...

parker is right - although it's Access Self-Storage. I looked up the planning portal for it a week or so ago to find out what it was!

Re: Sainsbury's Bell Green

I don't think they'll put in a Starbucks when they have their own cafe (and I hate the coffee in Starbucks, so would prefer a different chain anyway) but definitely agree on the windows! I've noticed that too Sophie, it is a bit disconcerting - especially if you're on your own at night. But there's ...

Thanks for this. I wish SydSoc would post on this forum as well as SE26.life.

As a resident of Perry Vale ward within about 5 minutes of Bell Green, I've got an interest in wh...

Re: Mamma Dough

I've not tried the Mamma Dough in Sydenham yet, but have had takeaway from one of their other branches which was really good. Hopefully it's just teething issues.

VERY Excited about the possibility of Blackbird Bakery!

Re: Why no longer https?

My work PC has Chrome and IE, and they're also still https with the padlock. Might be a Firefox issue? Someone with more techy knowledge than me can probably advise! Sounds a bit strange that only one browser would stop being secure.
