Re: Rapid coronavirus test site at Sydenham Centre

Really good to get a test centre in Sydenham - anything that makes it easier for us to get a test if needed. This location might remove someone's hesitancy to get out and be tested - avoids travel to Ctaford or other parts of the borough inc. CP.

Re: how to get out of this mess

Remember that even in the depths of the second world war the UK government was planning for the welfare state. If we could focus on more than one thing at once then, why not now?

Re: The Bridge

@JRW - interesting and valid question to ask especially if one is a resident. Bellingham is poorly served in a number of ways and is high on the deprivation index as well. No surprise that leisure facilities are correspondingly poor - though in other areas of London in the past, such as Brixton, the...

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

The changes to Bishopsthorpe and Silverdale were envisaged and initial consultations made a long time before Covid. They were always going to be introduced this year for a trial period; plans had been made - seems that Covid has given a general umbrella coverage and additional rationale for these sc...

Re: Camping in Mayow Park?

I've always wondered about where one "moves people on to" if they don't have a permanent base or aren't part of a travelling community. In the past it might not have mattered that much (out of site out of mind) but these days that is not in style. I'm thinking about how these days society ...
