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

Not sure how wise it is to revive this thread but wanted to say how grateful I am for this LTN now that we're back in lockdown. I'm clinically vulnerable and no longer feel able to use Mayow Park as it's too busy with too little attention paid to distancing. Bishops Thorpe and Silverdale provide a q...

Re: Back from school

Sydenham schools in Lewisham schools will have lost 48 hours to replicate this. I can't see how they can achieve this by Monday - so the workers for our essential services will not know if they can deliver or not. Our kids' school (in Lewisham) has pushed the start back to the 5th to allow a little...

Re: Masks

Today, I had to make a journey which involves 4 buses (2 there/2 back). I duly purchased face masks for this having been told like the rest of us that this is now mandatory. I am extremely surprised and upset that the vast majority of who would be classed within "BAME" were NOT wearing fa...

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

As a silverdale resident, I think these closures are brilliant. In the years I’ve lived on the road the traffic has increased exponentially, as has road rage, The dangerous way people drive and believe they can do whatever they like has also left the road dangerous to cross and impossible to use sa...

More sirens.

They seemed to be moving, didn't they? Coming from a vehicle or something. And perhaps 2 slightly different sounds, or did I imagine that?

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

and yet the lake had to be closed.


The press are clearly lying to advance their own agenda. I don't know who's behind Kent Live but I'd bet its (one or a combination of) the Russians/EUSSR/George Soros/the Freemasons.

Re: Forest Hill Pools

Well it is marginally better than a plastic lined puddle providing death trap circumstances and entirely unsupervised. Lewisham should hang its head in shame. It once boasted an Olympic sized swimming pool. The problem is that swimming pools are subject to strict regulations and Lewisham thought it...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Perhaps now some of the sneerers and jeerers will apologise for their abusive response to my original point. I am proved right. The half hearted changes will not resolve the safety issues. There MUST be buoyancy aids at 50 yard intervals around the lake. There MUST be lifeguards position in elevate...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

These safety concerns apply to any unattended body of water though, and the same points can be made about a bathtub. You could make the same points about any lake or pond in the UK. Yes, a kid could drown at Beckenham Place Park, just as they could if they ran into the Thames if they were out mudla...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Just had a look on the link and I am surprised there are no life preserver rings. Though I imagine, after a few months you will begin to notice litter, cigarette ends, plastic bottles and other rubbish dumped in there. I bet if you give it a year, you will find a supermarket trolley or an old fridg...
